ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“It’s truly magical witnessing the final product of something that I’ve been mulling over in my head for years, and I couldn’t be more excited,” says Bronze Radio Return front-man, Chris Henderson, about the band’s forthcoming self-titled EP.

A collection of love, triumph, uncertainty, and even a childhood experience comprise the five vastly diverse tracks which make up the band’s debut. The past few months of writing and recording have certainly managed to put many things into perspective for the young band hailing from Hartford, Connecticut.

“Some of the songs that made the cut have been kicked around for years, while some have only recently been written and recorded. As the songwriter, it’s interesting for me to see how all the songs derive from such unique places, yet when found under the same roof, seem to work really well with each other,” says Chris.

Collaborating with acclaimed producer/engineer/musician Doug Derryberry (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Bruce Hornsby, Ben Folds Five) was an eye-opening experience. Doug first approached the band after a well-received performance at The Bitter End in New York City. The buzz about the band caught his attention, and arrangements were quickly made to record some tracks together. After numerous late nights and a few overdub sessions in New York City, the band had the songs “Mirrors and Smoke” and “I Don’t Wait Any More.”

“We were excited to hear these tunes come to life. I think Doug really understood what we were going for yet crafted his own ideas to better emphasize what BRR is really about,” says drummer Rob Griffith.

Several of the other songs that made the record—“Shade Tonight,” “If the Roof is Leaking,” and “The Truth”—were recorded in a much more casual atmosphere over the span of a year with the aid of some great friends.

“Overall, it was an immense collaborative effort that pushed these tunes to where they are now. We had a bunch of guest musicians offer their time and ideas, and I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the final results,” says Chris.

The tracks were recorded in Hartford by Rob Shaffer and mixed in Belgium by Rob Murray—both are graduates from the same program that Chris attended at the Hartt School of Music.

Whether you refer to it as a personal narrative or merely a lesson in self-actualization, it is undeniable that the band’s self-titled EP is sure to turn heads and give you, the listener, a front-row seat inside the brilliant minds and talent of Bronze Radio Return. The miniature record, of sorts, is slated to hit the streets worldwide both on disc and via iTunes on March 18.

“I feel like we’re constantly being asked, ‘What do you call your kind of music?’ and to be honest, that’s the most sincere compliment we could get at this stage,” says Chris Henderson.

It would be far too easy to classify the band’s music as “blues rock,” although that may be the first genre that comes to mind when listening. According to Chris, “It’s clearly rooted in rock and blues music, but we incorporate other elements that, in the end, make our music something unique—or, at the very least, entertaining.” Unique and entertaining might be an understatement as it relates to the music industry; the band is being praised as “a breath of fresh air” in an oversaturated market of unoriginality.

Despite the band’s blatant and playful youthfulness, if you knew little of their appearance, you would swear they were a seasoned band of thirty-somethings. In contrast, though only in their early twenties, the members of Bronze Radio Return have managed to garner much success thus far in their careers. Having caught the attention of major record labels, producers, and even several beverage companies (who, consequently, have approached the band about corporate endorsements), Bronze Radio Return is well on its way to being a mainstay, career band.

“Touring is going to be a big part of the band’s success. We know it’s going to take an incredible amount of hard work and time to become that iconic band we strive to be,” says the band. Bronze Radio Return knows it must continue to write the music it’s become known for—music that will make you dance, sing along, and feel good.

Bronze Radio Return
This Bronze Radio Return CD is so amazing! It's not possible to sit still while listening to it, but when you do focus and listen, you're struck by how talented and creative these musicians are. The songs are complex yet appealing to everyone, no matter your age or favored style of music. I love the lead singer's voice! Bronze Radio Return's genre seems difficult to categorize--the CD is quite diverse--there's truly something for everyone to enjoy. I purchased a number of copies for friends/family from preteens to senior citizens--and anyone introduced to Bronze Radio Return just loves their sound.

Hard to describe... thank God!
So refreshing... I just love this band. A fresh take on a funky, bluesy sound. Listening to BRR gives you the feeling that you're back in high school hanging out with some friends on a Saturday night... only without the underage drinking, fuzzy posters, and black lights. In other words, these are the guys that stuck to their unique, creative guns, grew up, and got serious about their craft. This release reflects that these young talents have an uncharacteristic understanding of who they are as musicians. This is such a great freshman release that I had to order it on CD, despite already having the downloads. You won't be disappointed with this album.

Bought the CD because we are going to see the band on the 26th of July in Simsbury, CT. LOVE IT = my husband and I listen to it at home and at work. Can't wait to see the band live, sit back and just let the music sink into our souls. We are definately fans and will watch the band closely as they rise to stardom!!
