Phat A$tronaut is an organically grown, experimental soul ensemble from the funkier parts of Connecticut. The band formed shortly after singer/songwriter, Chad Browne-Springer, and guitarist/musical director, Mark Lyon, met on a D'Angelo tribute gig. Their sound consists of booty shaking rhythms and meticulously crafted arrangements with pop sensible songwriting at the forefront. Phat A$tronaut acknowledges many influences, including Prince, Hendrix, D'Angelo, Erykah, Fela, Frank Ocean, Knower, Hiatus Kayote, and many more, while maintaining undeniable originality. In just over a year of performing, Phat A$tronaut has become a high demand act on the regional scene, having performed at some of the area's top venues including Brooklyn Bowl, Toad's Place, The Warehouse (FTC), and many more. Be sure to check out Phat A$tronaut's live album, 'Live at Brooklyn Bowl' on bandcamp and studio album 'The Fifth Dimension' on all platforms.
