Phat A$tronaut is an organically grown, experimental soul ensemble from New Haven, CT.
The band formed shortly after singer/songwriter, Chad Browne-Springer, and guitarist/musical director, Mark Lyon, met on a D'Angelo tribute gig. Their sound consists of experimental yet danceable - head nodder rhythms and meticulously crafted arrangements with pop sensible songwriting at the forefront.
In just three years, Phat A$tronaut has performed at some of the north east's top venues including Brooklyn Bowl, Toad's Place, The Warehouse (FTC), Rockwood Music Hall, and many more. They have shared bills with such notable acts as OSHUN, Roots of Creation, Five Alarm Funk, Becca Stevens, Rituals of Mine, Jakubi, Underground System, Lyrics Born, Con Brio, Underground System, and Combo Chimbita. They have also played on numerous festivals including Hip To The Hops (VT), Trinity Hip. Hop Festival, Hygienic Hip Hop Festival, and more.
To date, Phat A$tronaut has a full length record, 'The Fifth Dimension' (2018), a live album, 'Live at Brooklyn Bowl' (2019), and a single 'Rare Fruit' (2020). Phat A$tronaut is currently in the process of recording another full length album. Stay tuned!
