Son Lux

SON LUX is led by Ryan Lott. After his first record, At War With Walls and Mazes, NPR’s All Songs Considered declared him "Best New Artist" of 2008. Son Lux has released two EPs and two LPs since, including 2011's We Are Rising LP, ambitiously written and recorded in just 28 days. All Music Guide describes 2013's Lanterns LP as "nothing short of a miracle." Son Lux's Alternate Worlds EP, completely re-imagines four songs from Lanterns, and features Lorde. Son Lux "works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams (Pitchfork)." As such, few artists have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators; Pop icons Lorde, Beyoncé producer Boots and Richard Parry (Arcade Fire), indie darlings Sufjan Stevens (with whom he shares the side project Sisyphus) and Peter Silberman (The Antlers), composers Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw, rappers Serengeti, Busdriver and Beans (Antipop Consortium), and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient and Bluegrass legend Chris Thile are all among Son Lux's recent collaborators. Son Lux composes music film, theater and dance. Film credits include arranging and programming for four major features, most notably Looper (2012), Don Jon (2013), and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014), starring James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain.
