Con Brio w/ Emma Mayes & The Hip, Em Possible

There’s a moment before each Con Brio show — before the backflips, the guitar solos, the buoyant horn lines over bass, drum and synth — when all seven band members come in for a huddle. It’s a way to say grace; an acknowledgment of live music as a team sport; a moment of stillness before they explode.

Emma Mayes & The Hip

Emma Mayes & The HIp, The Hip standing for "Highly Important People", is a conglomerate of Denver musicians that bring together their ideas into an interesting fusion mixed with lush vocal harmonies, catchy horn lines, and danceable melodies. They compare their sound similar to the likes of Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote, & Jill Scott while being more big band sound oriented. The Hip has recently grown it's Soul Family with those dedicated to the craft and the vision. They strive to bring good music combined with unforgettable nights in the way they encourage fans to participate in their "themed" shows. A Hip show is a show you that will leave you smiling and give you a spice of the old and new soul sound.

Em Possible has been singing since before she could talk. She grew up in a home where she was required to play an instrument, and after she picked up an acoustic guitar, that became her second instrument of choice (first, being her voice). She says “Once I had a six string in my hands, it felt like home.” What started as a hobby grew into her creating her own songs, then sharing them. Em grew up listening to all styles of music, and that is evident in her style of writing/singing.
