Touted by reviewers as possibly “the best singer/songwriter since Bob Dylan“, former Saturn 5 Records artist Eliot Bronson showcases his subtle yet powerful melodies on Eliot Bronson. Produced in analog warmth by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson). A refined and reflective album, in the mold of Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline and Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water, the album quickly gained critical acclaim.
Eliot Bronson was recorded in one week mostly at Cobb’s home studio, and mixed the following week. In keeping with the spirit of the album, Saturn 5 Records released it on vinyl as well as CD, both available on Saturn 5’s website.
Nathan Beaver’s southern roots run deep. Don’t be fooled by his choir boy good looks and angelic voice. This alt country singer is bad ass. Signed to Saturn 5 Records in 2015, Beaver’s full album Universal You and the extended play record, Everybody’s Out Tonight, are being re-released on August 21. Both albums capture Beaver’s distinctive style of smooth-as-oak-barreled-whiskey vocals laced with edgy lyrics.
Like a sip of good bourbon that burns a bit after one sniffs the sweet butterscotch aroma, Mike Killeen’s under-stated vocals allow his emotional and expressive lyrics to subtly bite the listener’s heart and mind. Poverty is Real, Mike Killeen’s third full-length album, drives that burn a bit harder with a result that is more pleasurable for it. Originally from Athens, Georgia, Mike counts Bob Dylan, Vic Chesnutt, Nirvana, and Uncle Tupelo among his formative influences. He has shared the stage with southern rock legends, The Marshall Tucker Band, and Grammy Award winners, The Blind Boys of Alabama.
