FEATURED SONG: Faster
Boston’s Best Not Broken has built a reputation for high energy shows and catchy, power pop/rock original songs. Drawing from Brit Pop, Alternative Rock, New Wave, and their own unique brand of singer-songwriter sensibility, the band crafts soundscapes that appeal to fans of artists ranging from The Killers to Ed Sheeran. Their thoughtful and, at times amusing, lyrics match the upbeat nature of the instrumentation, creating a fresh musical odyssey that is infectiously fun. Their live performances showcase the band’s contagious energy and often evolve into interactive dance parties where the onstage antics compel fans to rock out and let loose.
As a 2016 New England Music Awards winner, Best Not Broken has earned radio airplay with “Tell Me That You Want Me” and “I Won’t Stop Loving You”, as well as the recently released “Faster”. The band has several videos to their credit, including the release of the video-single “What The Night Has Left”. Best Not Broken has opened for legendary rockers like Pat Benatar, Little River Band, Gin Blossoms, The Babys Southside Johnny, and Jefferson Starship as well as contemporary chart-topping artists like Jason Derulo and Matt Nathanson. They have played major venues all over the Northeast including the Blue Ocean Music Hall, The Middle East and Brighton Music Hall in MA, The Aura and Maine State Pier in ME, The Bitter End and Parkside Lounge in NYC, the Casino Ballroom and Tupelo Music Hall in NH, and The Met in RI.
Best Not Broken is Eric Jackson (vocals, guitar), Mark Oswald (bass, vocals), Carlo Carluccio (drums, percussion), Anand Shah (guitar) and Brian Eyberg (keyboards). The band’s debut EP, Somewhere Good, produced by Boston music legend David Minehan, put them on the map in compelling fashion. Their follow-up EP, Falling In, also produced by Minehan, shows a band that has continued to mature, while maintaining the hooks and grooves that originally set them apart.
Best Not Broken’s newest single, “Brain”, embodies their latest evolution of sound. The band is currently recording a new album and touring throughout the Northeast.

FEATURED SONG: The Sweetest Elixir
You know that feeling when your aeroplane seat jolts beneath you, rattling the ice in your third beer and you notice the aircrew in collusion that something is very wrong.
Upon refocusing, you realise the letters in your alphabet soup spell out meet me in the restroom and you look up to be signalled a confident wink from the minxy air hostess who gave it to you… A few moments later, as she slips through the door joining you inside the bathroom, she slowly and smoothly reaches down her chest withdrawing a hand grenade, then pulls out the pin with her teeth…
Now you’re in a fix. Medusa won’t lie to you.
If it’s reassurance or validation you’re after, you’re in the wrong place. You’re on your own.
After recording the raucous, 80’s inspired self-titled debut album in late 2006, singer/guitarist Julian Molinero’s band of rock ‘n’ roll lunatics took to the streets of the UK for a series of live dates across the country’s music venues.
Julian then began piecing together ideas for the lengthier second album Can’t Fucking Win and recording began in late February 2009, with a new refined sound and 360 degree sonic scope, while still maintaining the same vitriolic power and stark honesty. The album was released in eary 2011, compiled and featuring production by Romesh Dodangoda, shortly after he had finished recording with Motorhead.
In 2011, the band was relocated from Northern England to London, and after releasing 3 music videos to songs from Can’t Fucking Win, a new incarnation of the band entered Regal House Studio in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire in 2014 to record the third album Headcase’s Handbook with producer Lee Batiuk.
The album was released in October 2014 and another trilogy of music videos followed. The band then hosted a long series of wild headlining gigs in London before focusing its attention on the songwriting for the upcoming fourth album. It is scheduled for release in 2019. Stay tuned!
