He turns a new page with 2020's Empty Spaces, a breakup album for the romantics and realists among us. Written after a split from his fiancé and a move from Atlanta to Nashville, Empty Spaces pairs sharply-written songs about loss, leaving, and redemption with quietly cinematic arrangements rooted in electric guitars, vocal harmonies, strings, and Mellotron. Co-produced by Bronson and longtime bandmate Will Robertson, Empty Spaces shines a light on Eliot Bronson at his most compelling, punctuating the woozy warmth of "Visitor," the heartland pop/rock of "With Somebody," and all points in between with the sharpest writing of his career. This isn't just a record about empty spaces, after all. It's a record about the new discoveries that can fill the void.
