Fans around the world know the alt-rock band X Ambassadors from their hit songs “Unsteady” and “Renegades,” but most probably don’t realize the group’s connection to upstate New York. Lead singer Sam Harris along with his brother and bandmate Casey are natives of Ithaca. This month, the band will connect with their fans through their inaugural Cayuga Sound music festival--taking place in their hometown September 22 - 23. The festival will also feature musical heavyweights including the Roots, the Knocks, Tei Shi and more. I LOVE NY spoke with Sam about the upcoming festival and what he loves about New York State.
