Lyrics Born: The Wordsmith

Lyrics Born, the wordsmith who’s been hammering out hits like “Oh Baby” and “Lies X 3” since 1992, is bringing his blast furnace and anvil to New York. With 18 years of experience on his shoulders, Born’s lyrics have been polished to a shine, and he’s ready to prove it with songs from his newest album, “As U Were.” Although he came up on the Pacific Coast, he’s no stranger to the Atlantic, having toured everywhere on the continent and even to South America and Australia. Now he’s coming to Brooklyn Bowl on Feb. 5 with tickets for $8 and doors opening at 11:30 p.m.
