Touted by reviewers as possibly “the best singer/songwriter since Bob Dylan“, when Eliot Bronson takes the stage, he has unmistakable presence. His subtle yet powerful melodies penetrate your subconscious, and the words turn over and over in your mind, where you discover layers of meaning and complexity. His live performances are transformative. As one audience member put it, “Eliot bends the heartstrings of his listeners leaving them breathless for a moment or two even after the song ends.”
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.
