Album Notes
Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Eli Braden makes music simultaneously timeless and contemporary, combining the classic pop melodicism of Lennon/McCartney with post-punk attitude and a lyrical wit reminiscent of both Morrissey and Eminem.

In November 2003, Eli released the CD "Honeydripper" on the independent label Self Release Records. "Honeydripper" is a compilation of 14 of the best songs he's recorded - some in expensive studios, some in friends' bedrooms - but the common thread is uncommonly good music.

As of this writing (November 2007), Eli's new band Pistol Opera is finishing their second album, which will be released in 2008. Their self-titled debut is available on cdbaby (http://cdbaby.com/cd/pistolopera) as well as the iTunes music store ... www.myspace.com/pistoloperamusic

Great Sound!
You rock man! This is an awesome cd. Forget picking a favorite song, they are all good.

guy in bar

good quality, very tight and pro
this cd is a nice collection of sounds. the artist says on the liner notes that he doesnt believe the album to be one, as such, due to the hodgepodge of sounds but it is a very good collection and I wish more albums had this sort of variety.

Emily Ramage

Had to buy another one!
My dog chewed up the first cd, and I missed it so much we just ordered it again! This guy deserves some time in the spotlight!


Eli Braden makes my honey drip...
I carry around any one of these brilliant tunes in my head every single day. At dinner, I often break into my falsetto version of Soul on Fire or sing Hello LA as I walk these Los Angeles streets. Now, when I'm sober, i head to the store to find some comfort in a southern style... If I ever write a song as good as Shrine, I will consider myself a success.

Sebastian Van Hekler

'All Tied Up' has got to be one of the catchiest tunes ever. The chorus hooks you in and the verse melodies are classic. Who cares what the lyrics are when you have hooks like these. It's all 'bout the melodies babe. I tip my hat to you for writing such a brilliant chorus. All Tied Up is stellar!!!!

Tracey Gilbert

Honey Dripper has me "ALL TIED UP"
A little more mellow than Fuse's version, but I must confess 'All Tied Up' is a great song. I'm suprised it never became a hit. It has all the trappings of a smash. Great melody in verse and a killer hook of a chorus.
Maybe the spinal tappish bridge was a little too obvious but hey, Eli, you got it goin' on!!!

Shannon Magnis

I can honestly say that I love every song on the album. Someone else said it but I have to agree that it gets better everytime I listen to it. You are incredibly talented and I am looking forward to seeing you again live!

Tommy Tomas

Man. Lovely Soul Detonator is the best song I've ever heard!!!!

Serena Cruz

Very Lovely!
My favorite songs are Shrine and Lovely Soul Detonater.

Jimmy Johnson

Lovely Soul Detonator ROCKS!!!!
Take the best of Lennon and the guitar god magic of Page and you have Lovely Soul Detonator!!
