On “I Like Me Better” Ryan Riback said, “I’m a fan of Lauv and love his records. When I first heard the vocal and the soul of ‘I Like Me Better’ it really spoke to me. I’m really happy with the collaboration on this one!”
Based in LA, Lauv, who is now signed to Prescription Songs and Kobalt Music Recordings, has appeared at festivals including Firefly and brought the wistful intimacy of his music to the live arena. As heard on “I Like Me Better,” that unfettered openness remains a major touchstone for Lauv. “Before I started making music as Lauv, I’d lost that sense of who I really was for a while,” said Lauv. “It seems like a lot of people lose touch with that forever, and end up living a life that’s not really true to who they are. By being so honest in my songs, I want to encourage people to be okay with who they are and what they feel. More than anything else, that’s what drives me to create music in a massive way.”
Last month Lauv embarked on his sold-out “late nights, deep talks” tour. This summer, he will be performing at Summerfest and Billboard Hot 100 Festival.
Upcoming Tour Dates:
July 9 – Milwaukee, WI @ Summerfest
August 20 – Wantagh, NY @ Billboard Hot 100 Festival
