In 2015 The Broadcast caught the ear of seven-time Grammy-winning producer Jim Scott (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Wilco, Grace Potter, Tom Petty, Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers). Scott invited the Asheville, NC-based Americana/Soul outfit to travel to Los Angeles upon hearing the demos the band had been workshopping. There, The Broadcast recorded its sophomore full-length, From the Horizon, in the desert of California. Scott’s enthusiasm about the band and genuine excitement about this collection of songs shines brightly in the finished product. When asked about From the Horizon Scott says “I think this record is very brave in the fact that it doesn’t follow a pattern or trend. It’s classically good music based on the music that we’ve all listened to since the ‘50s till today. It’s got soul, and vibrancy, and life”. From the Horizon is an apt title, expressing a sense of change and lightning-in-a-bottle potential The Broadcast taps into on this latest offering. A slight departure from their debut album Dodge The Arrow, the 11 song record finds the band delving deeper into the realms of Americana.
The Broadcast has built a strong and loyal fan base through non-stop international touring. They’ve performed in 11 different countries, and have shared stages with Mavis Staples, St Paul & The Broken Bones, The Wood Brothers, Brandi Carlisle, Keller Williams, George Porter Jr, Betty LaVette, and Charles Bradley among others. Their independently released debut, Dodge The Arrow, recorded at Asheville’s famed Echo Mountain Studios with LA producer, Eric “Mixerman” Sarafin), went on to sell nearly 10,000 copies, ranked as high as #4 on the college radio charts, and earned them “Best New Artist” and runner up for “Album of the Year” from Homegrown Music Network.
