Acclaimed keyboardist, composer, and bandleader Lao Tizer has released the first single Down from his highly anticipated album Amplify. Known for his boundary-pushing sound, Tizer's new track showcases his remarkable talent for blending diverse musical styles. Featuring the soulful vocals of American Idol star Elliott Yamin, "Down" promises to be a standout hit from the upcoming album set for release on August 23. Fans can expect a unique mix of smartly-grooved instrumentals and captivating vocal performances, solidifying Tizer's reputation as a versatile and innovative artist. Tizer shared:

Elliott has been an unbelievable fit for this project and the band. He’s very much a throwback to a blue-eyed soul kind of vocalist. This project was a little different from his usual wheelhouse, but he’s such a naturally gifted singer that he ran with it, adding his amazingly soulful thing to our harmonic, rhythmic, and compositional sensibilities. He sings his butt off.

Joining forces with Yamin, Tizer's "Amplify" album features a stellar lineup of musicians, including Grammy-winning saxophonist Eric Marienthal, Emmy-winning guitarist Chieli Minucci, Senegalese bassist Cheikh N'Doye, and violinist extraordinaire Karen Briggs. This collaboration has resulted in a dynamic sound that blends jazz, R&B, world beat, and jam band influences. Fans can look forward to hearing these musical explorations live as Tizer and his band hit the road in support of the album, with tour dates spanning across the country. Watch the video for "Down" below and stream the single to experience the magic of Lao Tizer and Elliott Yamin's collaboration.
