New York’s X Ambassadors make passionate, electronic-tinged pop centered around the throaty, soulful vocals of Sam Harris. The group first gained buzz with their 2013 EP Love Songs Drug Songs, featuring the single “Unconsolable.” They gained widespread attention after hitting the Top Ten with their debut full-length, VHS, in 2015. That album hit number seven on the Billboard 200 and paved the way for 2019’s Orion. In 2021, X Ambassadors embarked on a collaborative project called (Eg), which found them working on songs with artists like Jensen McRae, Terrell Hines, and others, before returning with the ambitious concept album The Beautiful Liar.
Formed in Ithaca, New York in 2009, X Ambassadors originally featured Harris’ keyboardist brother Casey Harris, childhood friend/guitarist Noah Feldshuh, and drummer Adam Levin. Initially calling themselves Ambassadors, they released a self-titled EP in 2009. To the band members’ surprise, their song “Litost” garnered online buzz and was eventually put into rotation on Virginia’s 96X radio station. (It also prompted the limited release of an Ambassadors full-length in 2012, also called Litost.) Another song, “Unconsolable,” drew listeners in, and the attention helped score the group a management deal and recording contract.
Contemporary Booking as worked with the X Ambassadors many times including forming a partnership with the Foundation Fighting Blindness.
