Bronson was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He began playing at local coffeehouses and was dubbed a "folk singing wunderkind" by The Baltimore Sun, 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. In 2010, the band split up and Bronson continued solo, releasing Blackbirds in 2011. In 2012, Bronson released Milwaukee, with his band Yonder Orphans (Kevin Leahy, Will Robertson and Bret Hartley).

In 2014, Bronson signed with independent music label, Saturn 5 Records. The ten-song self-titled album Eliot Bronson was recorded totally analog in Nashville by producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell). Going for feel and vibe over modern perfection, he used a rare Helios mixing console and a tape machine on loan from the Norman Petty Estate, which was also used to record Buddy Holly in the 1950s.

Eliot Bronson was recorded in one week at Cobb's home studio and The Sound Emporium, and mixed the following week. Other musicians on the album include Bret Hartley, Chris Powell, Adam Gardner, Kristen Rogers and Dave Cobb.

The album received critical acclaim and numerous "Top Album" ranking in the United States and Europe. Bronson was dubbed by Bop n Jazz as "maybe the best singer/songwriter since Dylan".

In August 2017, he released his next album James. The album includes "Rough Ride", a song about fellow Baltimorean Freddie Gray.

The O Museum in the Mansion

Exploration and Discovery

Dedicated to serving cultural, scientific, and educational growth through the creative process, we foster inner strength and peace through diversity, to provide a unique forum that inspires guests to:

•    Realize your vision
•    Experience the creative process
•    Inspire imagination
•    Empower authenticity
•    Dare to be different

The O Street Museum Foundation promotes and embraces life, from every culture, resulting in a wide-ranging collection of paintings, photographs, sculpture, books, artifacts, and music, from all over the globe.

The only museum of its kind, the O Street Museum is dedicated to exploring the creative process. The collection rotates and changes daily. From the art, to the music, to the surroundings, no visit is ever the same.

Here you will find artist's letters, sports & entertainment memorabilia, written manuscripts, rare photos, art, pop-culture, signed guitars (we have more than 60), one of the largest "raw and exposed" music collections and much more — our galleries are not limited to one genre.

O Street Museum offers an immersive, tactile experience making it one of DC's most unique attractions. Guests will leaf through manuscripts, touch sculpture, hear rare studio cuts, and tour through an array of diverse exhibits, achitectual styles, secret doors, and our legendary themed rooms — like the Log Cabin, the John Lennon Suite, the Safari room, and Mrs. Rosa Parks room (we were her home-away-from-home for nearly 10 years). We are a historic site on The African American Heritage Trail and designated as a 20th Century Civil Rights site by Cultural Tourism DC.

As a non-profit we offer a wide range of programs including artist-in-residence, heroes, concerts, jammin', author and artist talks, raw & exposed music, songwriter's workshops, and kids programs.

No matter where you look you will miss something. But it's not what you miss, rather what you're willing to see. Magic and miracles exist. Not just in the mind.

It's the simple things, small steps, the goals we choose, the way of life we want to breathe. How easily everything changes when you choose to look at the same thing from a different angle.
