Lothario Biography

So is a band named Lothario full of ladies’ men? Nay! It’s just a badass name! Sure, there is some symbolism buried in there; They may seduce a crowd—or a beer—or even test the faith of a true live music lover. That’s all beside the point; the true aim of this band is to tap into the raw emotions of the listener—whether exuberant, somber, even downright malicious—and render them transparent in a moment of true honesty. In other words, they want you to nod your head and say “that shit’s tight!”

Lothario is a hip-hop band, but each member brings a distinctive musical personality to the table. Bassist Knuckleball Ned propels songs with jazz-tinged classic funk and rock underpinnings while guitarist Clint James splashes in with vicious hard rock and entrancing metal riffs. Emcee Ill Pirsona rhymes somewhere between the in-your-face political fervor of Chuck D and the everyday struggle reflectivity of Ghostface, all in a precisely metered swagger. Fellow emcee Deep Easy blends
indie rap’s literary examinations of universal themes with punishing Wu-Tang influenced cadence and wordplay. Bringing it all together, newcomer drummer Turtle impresses with styles ranging from minimalist knockin’ beats to bombastic jazz fusion, always sounding both edgy and effortless.

As is the way of many bands, Lothario has seen some original members move on. One bassist, one drummer, and the original third emcee all contributed largely to this musical project. But today we see Lothario renewed, refined, and retooled; streamlined for the road ahead. On the strength of their friendships—both old and new—and their diverse take on live music, Lothario is poised to seduce some eardrums.
