Rife with natural creative energy and endless high desert inspiration, Santa Fe, New Mexico served as the backdrop for Lostboycrow’s full-length debut album, Santa Fe, out everywhere now via Sony’s RED MUSIC. It closes one chapter and opens another for the artist born Chris Blair.
“I was already in love with the people and energy of New Mexico, and Santa Fe is so beautiful,” Chris admits. “When it came time to do this record, I’d been longing to get back to my roots as a songwriter, building tunes on the acoustic guitar and being involved in every note, chord, line, lyric, and melody. I pivoted towards that. I got to go back to this place with a lot of new experiences. It became this meeting place between ‘then’ and ‘now’. That’s what the album is about. Santa Fe is a vehicle of exploring gratitude for where I am, who I am, and how I came to be Lostboycrow and ultimately do what I’m doing.“

“Capturing emotions and blending them with a soulful style of writing, Lostboycrowcreates hypnotic R&B rhythms which draw you in until the very end, yearning for more.” – Earmilk
“[Santa Fe] takes you on a poignantly picturesque tale lyrically adorned with emotional synergy, storied stylings, and sanguining longings.” – Elicit Magazine
At the onset of his touring career in 2011, New Mexico welcomed him with open arms at cozy coffee houses across the state, and the singer later enchanted audiences and critics nationwide when he toured alongside VÉRITÉ, K. Flay, and Flor, garnering acclaim from news outlets like Billboard, NYLON, and Pigeons & Planes along the way.
The years since he first hosted those intimate gigs in Albuquerque set the stage for such transformation in the high desert. Revered for his rapturous voice, off-kilter R&B panache, pure alternative perception, and airtight songwriting, Lostboycrow emerged as the ultimate pop enigma. By 2018, his cumulative streams impressively tallied over 205 million highlighted by the success of “Since The Day I Was Born, “Orange Juice,” and “Violet Sky”, which received placements on notable Spotify playlists New Music Friday, Indie Pop, and Pop Chillout, to name a few. The singer now boasts nearly 2 million monthly listeners and 60,000 subscribers on Spotify alone.
Watch “A Dog in the Mud” – a short film by Johnny Chang featuring the music from Lostboycrow’s album, Santa Fe.
“With Chris (Lostboycrow), his work evokes a feeling. Try closing your eyes and listen to his music with an open mind. The sounds make your mind wander into a free space of imagination that is quite rare with music. This video to me was about riding a feeling, and drifting into the layers of a relationship that you cant explain but only experience and feel.” – Johnny Chang
