Bio

National Broadcast was born in October 2008 when there were many songs a-written, 3 friends a-jamming, 2 gigs a-booked, and no drummers drumming. The two options were: cancel the gigs or find a beat-keeper to complete the band.
Seattle based drummer, Ben Smith, came to the rescue 3 days after getting off a 3 month U.S. arena tour with Heart. National Broadcast played the gigs at Qwest Field and one of Seattle's most prominent proving grounds; the Tractor Tavern. The positive response to the gig gave the Broadcasters a follow-up Tractor showing. It also, fueled the completion of the "Shelter" EP, named after it's primary sonic engineer, Grammy Award winning, Garey Shelton.
The new EP has been released for digital download. The EP is traveling around the country in yellow mailing envelopes in search of support in order to someday grow into an LP.
The songs on the EP began as "acoustic tales" written by the lead singer, Greg Robinson on his journey from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina to Seattle. Then with the help of bassist Ed McKenzie, guitarist Bob Limbocker, and drummer/producer Ben Smith, those solo tracks became fully furnished compositions.
"Shelter" is comprised of six songs that tell stories of war, peace, love, loss, trains, traitors, prisons, help, and helplessness.
