With powerful and soulful melodies, poly rhythmic grooves and an uncanny ability to connect with listeners it's no wonder The Broadcast has audiences across the country entranced. Originally formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2007, this young, six-piece soul infused rock band is known for their tight, high-energy performances that have vaulted them into the national spotlight.
After their relocation to the beautiful mountainside of Asheville,
NC, The Broadcast has grown into a full-time, nationally touring group. Their rise on the festival circuit has scored them press interest from such outlets as FlavorPill, VERVE and Cosmopolitan Magazine who described lead vocalist Caitlin Krisko's voice as "drenched in honey, and dripping with soul".
The Broadcast draws influences from the funky and soulful "Motown Sound" and the raw vocal prowess of singers such as Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin. Platinum blonde, Caitlin Krisko, whose commanding and captivating voice has been compared to the likes of Adele and Grace Potter, fronts the band with a prowess not often found in vocalists her age.
Their powerhouse performances are not only characterized by Krisko's dynamic voice but also by the interplay of the band. The trio of Michael Davis (drums), Matthew Davis (bass) and Tyler Housholder (percussion) create rich foundations of rhythm that drive the band. Guitarist Aaron Austin and keyboardist Rich Brownstein punctuate the group's sound with their soulful solo's and deep tonal textures.
For fans of: My Morning Jacket, Modest Mouse, Alt-J & Radiohead.
Antique Firearms is an amalgamation of tastes, influences, and proclivities toward experimentation, but there are also certain consistencies that serve as a foundation to the sound. There’s a moody, atmospheric quality and a velvety lushness that underscores each song, whether the tempo is a twangy waltz or a languid rocker.
And then there’s lead singer Bradan Dotson’s voice; a rangy rasp, a breathless, sometimes quivering intonation that’s as much the melody as the accent to Antique Firearms’ instantly recognizable (if genre-unspecific) soundscapes.
The dynamic nature of the band's sound has lead them to be compared to the likes of ‘My Morning Jacket’ and a southern-fried version of ‘Radiohead’. That along with their blistering live performance has been creating quite a buzz in the southeast.
Also informing their sound is the close relationship of the band - the three founding members being brothers. Bradan and Parker Dotson conceived of the band while traveling in the Netherlands. Once back from their travels they moved to Asheville, NC where they soon wrote and recorded the self-titled debut album.
Fast forward a year with the addition of Galen Dotson, Chandler Brewer, and Dave Breske to round out the group. They have risen to the top of the Asheville music scene, and with their newly released album “Vicious Behavior” stand poised to extend their reach to the masses.
Goner crafts great songs, combining a poetic eye for detail, a cinematic sense of place and character, and an encyclopedic love of rocks both classic and indie
