PHAT A$TRONAUT /  New Haven, CT Psychedelic soul/experimental r&b

Phat A$tronaut is an organically grown, experimental soul ensemble from the funkier parts of a small state called Connecticut.
The band formed shortly after singer/songwriter, Chad Browne-Springer, and guitarist/musical director, Mark Lyon, met on a D'Angelo tribute gig.
Their sound consists of booty shaking rhythms and musically induced psychedelia with pop sensible songwriting at the forefront.
Phat A$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$tronaut has become a high demand act on the local scene, and are starting to introduce their unique freakiness throughout the Tri-state area and New England.
Be sure to spread the word of Phat A$tronaut, and stay tuned for our debut studio record coming out April 13th!

Album Review: Phat Astronaut Live

At a time when the oligarchy that runs this country would divide us, it’s refreshing to see people making art that transcends and unites. And that’s what Phat Astronaut is — art you can dance to. All human, all outer space, no autotune needed.

Phat A$tronaut Takes Off

But A$tronaut is no throwback. This a band making R&B for today — the kind of R&B that, following the footsteps of P. Funk, and in keeping with the explosion of creativity in R&B and hip hop we’re seeing all around us, pulls from pop, rock, hip hop, and electronic music to create a brew of ever-shifting textures and rhythms. It’s a sound that feels cohesive yet searching, created by four musicians who sound totally engaged in every moment.
