When composer, keyboardist, and vocalist Ryan Lott—who founded Son Lux in 2008—invited percussionist Ian Chang and guitarist Rafiq Bhatia to join his solo project, the band became much more than the sum of its parts. The trio announced its new sound with the release of the 2015 album Bones, an experimental soundtrack that posed universal questions about living in a complex world. In early 2018 they followed it up with the deeply personal Brighter Wounds, building on their “avant-pop” foundation “with gorgeous instrumental bursts that lift Lott’s vocals to a desperate breaking point” (Pitchfork) in an intimate examination of what it means to be human. Fresh off an extensive European tour, Son Lux brings their deeply personal set to The Appel Room for an evening of warm reflections on love and loss and a thoughtful mixture of fear and optimism about our individual and shared futures.

“With a masterful flair for entwining the acoustic and the electronic, Lott crafts distinctive fluttering melodies, unique textures and dynamic arrangements that sound like no one else.”
“Ryan Lott… is the kind of songwriter who can turn the most intimate moments sweeping and majestic.”
– Pitchfork
