New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Atlanta-based award-winning Americana singer-songwriter Eliot Bronson has signed a joint management deal with Nashville-based Rock Ridge Music
and Atlanta-based Hubbub! Music. In tandem, the two companies will oversee all artist management needs for Bronson. Additionally, he will release his next album, James, on August 25, 2017 via the label arm of Rock Ridge Music. James
was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), who also produced Bronson's most recent, self-titled album. "It was a pleasure working with Eliot," says Cobb. "He is a brilliant lyricist and poet."
"This a great team to be part of - Dave Cobb, Rock Ridge, Hubbub," says Bronson. "All of these folks 'get it.' I'm immensely proud of this record. It's the best thing I've done. I can't wait to share it with everyone."
Says Rock Ridge Music
CEO Tom Derr about the partnership: "Rock Ridge Music
looks forward to a great collaboration with Eliot and Hubbub! Music. This music business is a team sport."
Embraced for his 2014 self-titled album by the likes of CMT Edge, Country Weekly, Guitar World, Sirius
XM's Outlaw Country, Acoustic Guitar Magazine and more, Paste Magazine called Bronson and his music "an Americana gem" and "a poetic blend of urban coffee house and outskirts-of-town saloon." Glide Magazine named the album "one of the best releases" of 2014 and called Bronson "a rock and roll, folk, country mash-up … [with] strong songwriting and lush vocals. …Eliot Bronson is like a gorgeous, magnificent hybrid of [Ryan] Adams, Jason Isbell, and Jim James. …his songs are so purely authentic and well crafted…" Saving Country Music
praised Bronson for "capturing moments of spectacular insight and feeling, and giving words to what previously were thought to be unmentionable, and undefinable feelings, and doing it all with a deep sense of mood and melody that make the emotions drip from the edges of the notes like tears."
Bronson has released three critically acclaimed solo albums and, prior to his solo career, was a member of The Brilliant Inventions. He has won such esteemed songwriting awards as first place at Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest and Eddie Owen Presents "Songwriter Shootout," and he's been a finalist at Kerrville Folk Festival, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriting Contest, and New Song Contest Lincoln Center NYC.
