Eliot Bronson is a songwriting machine and his eponymous album, released in 2014, does everything to prove that to the listener. Bronson worked with Dave Cobb on the album (whom you know from his collaborations with Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, et al.). The producer sets up an unencumbered and energetic space for Bronson’s songs to really pop and grab hold. From start to finish, you can find whatever it is you want from these songs, from bangers, to tearjerkers, from the vibey to the sentimental. And now in honor of our Folkadelphia Session release, revisiting the album released about a year ago, I have to say that it truly stands up. I know a year is not a very long time, but I’m sure most folks have had albums they love, stop listening to for one reason or another, and then come back to find its quality has faded. You won’t find that with Eliot Bronson’s self-titled record – these songs remain solid to the core.
