The Como Brothers band is a refreshing group I haven’t seen in a while. They released their single titled “Diamonds On My Chain” and it shows elements of jazz, soul, pop, and R&B. All fused together to make one jam-packed 2 minute and 45 second hit record! Matt and Andrew Como, are musicians (singers, songwriters and performers) from Long Island who are passionate about their music with heartfelt lyrics, and an original sound. Combining a pop and rock easy listening tune with a blues vibe, they have written and recorded multiple albums and EP’s of original songs. The Como Brothers have had songs being featured in TV shows such as E! Networks Keeping Up with the Kardashians, MTV's The Real World, and The Oxygen Channel's Best Ink among many others! Establishing themselves as artists. They collaborated with the iconic Sam Woolfe, A singer-songwriter known for his original compositions and pitch perfect vocals, Sam has been hailed as a "natural singer whose soul and passion are undeniable in every note he sings." Together The Como Brothers curate the hit “Diamonds On My Chain” with an addicting hook, “you bring me up, to put me down” “Why should I worry? Why should I care?” and it isn’t the lyrics that makes the hook so addicting but the melody that’s so funky yet contemporary you just can’t help but want to sing along. I noticed how each of them have a slight different vocal style yet the way they fused all 3 styles together was almost effortless. They made “Diamonds On My Chain” not feel like a collaboration but more so as a union. They were able to work so well together where you can tell each individual artist apart yet listen to this song in one unit like it was one artist singing from start to finish. That chemistry blended superbly well on the record, and I believe artists nowadays tend to compete with one another on collaborative projects instead of supporting. The video showcased the fresh outfits with gold chains to match the fun and catchy lyrics of the song!

Hey guys, care to introduce yourselves to our readers?
Hey! Our names are Andrew and Matt, and we're The Como Brothers. We're a singer/songwriter pop duo from Long Island, NY.
Como Brothers, when did you guys begin creating music? Sam, how about yourself?
We started writing our own songs in high school. Writing is our favorite thing ever. We always strive to write songs that are both meaningful and catchy at the same time. The thrill of creating music never gets old. We want to make music that will resonate with people's hearts while getting stuck in their heads. Sam's been singing since he was a little kid.
Care to share one of your favorite musical career highlights?
There are so many moments I could cite for different reasons. However, playing in a Beatles tribute band with my Uncle Lawrence and dad when I was in high school is something that I'll cherish forever. As a 16 year old kid, there was nothing better than playing with my two heroes every weekend.
How did the idea of you and Sam Woolf collaborating on "Diamonds on My Chain" come about?
Diamonds came about as we were all finishing up another song that we were recording together called "Twisted". Our ultimate goal is to have songs on top of the charts one day, and I was really loving how Twisted came out. I was super excited about it while simultaneously feeling a little down thinking "I hope people like it". I went to my room and Diamonds On My Chain just flowed out. "Why should I worry? Why should I care? I'm going here, sitting down, looking 'round, Diamonds On My Chain". It was a little cocky joke to myself reaffirming that we're going to succeed. I showed it to the guys, and they loved it. They helped polish it up, and we recorded it.
What are some major difference in styles and opinions between the three of you?
We all have very similar influences and listen to very similar type of music. There aren't very big differences in style between us.
What is your artist interpretation of your single “Diamonds On My Chain” ?
It's a song about believing in yourself. It reaffirms that I'm going to achieve my dreams in an over-the-top way. I'm no rapper by any means, but I love rap music. I listened to rap & hip-hop music exclusively during middle school. Eminem, 50 Cent, G-Unit, The Game, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Notorious BIG, NAS, Wu-Tang Clan, Kanye West, The Roots, etc. Lyrically, Diamonds On My Chain felt like it could have been from that 1995-2004 era of hip-hop, so we just went with that vibe. Sam has that John Legend kind of voice, so it really fit perfect to have him sing the hook. We had a lot fun recording that song. It was almost a competition; how ridiculous can we get? We don't come from money, we don't have diamonds, and we don't have chains...so the concept is ridiculous for us. But we just stepped into that role and had a lot of fun. We don't take ourselves very seriously, but we had fun pretending that we do on this song. What is not ridiculous is the underlying message of the song; I'm going to succeed at my dreams and make it.
What can we expect from Como Brothers in the near future?
We're going to be releasing a single every 2 months starting with our new song "One and Only" on April 15th. We have a lyric video that we'll be putting out for "One and Only" as well. We put out a live video of "One and Only" in late 2018 and it's gone viral in the Philippines. We're really excited to put out a studio version that everyone can hear!
