The Broadcast is an Americana/Soul band from Asheville, NC composed of Caitlin Krisko (vocals), Aaron Austin (guitar), Tyler Housholder (percussion), Jaze Uries (drums), and E'Lon Jordan-Dunlap (bass). Their independently released debut, Dodge The Arrow, was recorded in 2013 at Asheville’s famed Echo Mountain Studio with LA producer, Eric “Mixerman” Sarafin. It 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. Their sophomore full-length album, From The Horizon, is due out June 17, 2016. David Dye and Joe Kendrick premiered "On The Edge", the first single from the new album on World Cafe's Sense of Place[1] on March 31, 2016.

The band's music eventually caught the ear of revered producer Jim Scott (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Wilco, Grace Potter, Tom Petty, Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers). The seven-time Grammy-winner invited the band to travel to Los Angeles after hearing the demos the band had been work-shopping. There, The Broadcast recorded their sophomore album 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 recording. 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 that 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 years of non-stop touring. They’ve shared stages with Mavis Staples, John Prine, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, The Wood Brothers, Brandi Carlisle, Keller Williams, Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers, George Porter Jr. (Funky Meters), Bettye LaVette, Charles Bradley and Holly Williams, among others.
