Eliot Bronson is an American folk rock singer-songwriter. Best known for his work with The Brilliant Inventions, Bronson embarked on a solo career after the band's breakup with Blackbirds.[2] He also gained attention for a YouTube parody of American Idol contestant Renaldo Lapuz's "We're Brothers Forever".[3]

Early life and career[edit]

Bronson was born in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1999, he began playing at local coffeehouses and was dubbed a "folk singing wunderkind"[4] by The Baltimore Sun.[4][5] He later moved to Atlanta, where he formed the duo The Brilliant Inventions. The band became a staple of the Atlanta music scene, winning several local and national music awards and gaining a substantial fan following.[2] In 2010, the band split up and Bronson continued solo, releasing Blackbirds in 2011.[6] In 2012, Bronson released Milwaukee, a collaboration with the band Yonder Orphans (Kevin Leahy, Will Robertson and Bret Hartley).
