Compose, record, and remix songs for superstar artists and global brands. Get heard, get licensed, get released. We post the creative brief and you make great music to win amazing rewards, share with friends, and build your musical resume.”
There is a long and storied history of great creative works that have arisen from isolation in a remote cabin, from Thoreau’s Walden to Bon Iver’s debut record. The music of AMBASSADORS follows in that tradition, their first album being largely penned in an upstate NY cabin while keyboardist Casey Harris was recuperating from a kidney transplant. Far from the environment of their native Brooklyn, the quartet emerged from the woods with Litost, an album of striking musicianship and fresh perspectives.
We’re excited to bring you the first of Indaba Music’s weekly artist features on EMPT, which features originals, covers, and remixes by emerging artists. “Unconsolable,” the album’s powerful first single, presents AMBASSADORS’ angular harmonies and driving grooves at their best.
Check out their scrumptious cover of Maxwell’s 2001 classic “Lifetime,” produced by Indaba Music at Braund Sound.
And while you’re at it, treat yourselves to the winning remixes from the AMBASSADORS Remix Contest, hosted on Indaba Music:
