Eliot Bronson is an American singer-songwriter. Bronson was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He began playing at local coffeehouses and was dubbed a “folk singing wunderkind” by The Baltimore Sun. He later moved to Atlanta, where he formed the duo The Brilliant Inventions. The band became a staple of the Atlanta music scene, winning several local and national music awards and gaining a substantial fan following. In 2010, the band split up and Bronson continued solo, releasing Blackbirds in 2011. In 2012, Bronson released Milwaukee, with his band Yonder Orphans (Kevin Leahy, Will Robertson and Bret Hartley).
In 2014, Bronson signed with independent music label, Saturn 5 Records. The ten-song self-titled album Eliot Bronson was recorded totally analog in Nashville by producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell). Going for feel and vibe over modern perfection, he used a rare Helios mixing console and a tape machine on loan from the Norman Petty Estate, which was also used to record Buddy Holly in the 1950s.
In August 2017, he released his next album James. The album includes “Rough Ride,” a song about fellow Baltimorean Freddie Gray. – Wikipedia
Through his full band vehicle, Time Sawyer, Sam Tayloe is interested in “real people and real songs” and that’s just what the listener finds in his music – a sense of realness. Blending a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics, Tayloe pulls the listener in with introspective ballads that land in that rootsy sweet spot where folk, alt-country, and rock gather for a good time.
