  • Covering the Bases Notes

    Born in Key West, Florida and raised in Tampa, Florida, Bronson Arroyo came from a musical and sports family. Drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1995, Arroyo was later signed by the Boston Red Sox in 2003.

    After the 2004 World Series won by the Red Sox, Bronson teamed up with music producer Loren Harriet (credits include NY Yankee Bernie Williams album) and music executive Lou Mann (former Exec VP/GM at Capitol Records) to create a twelve song album featuring cover songs that Arroyo would play for his teammates.

    The album features covers of songs by Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, Incubus, The Foo Fighters and more. Track twelve is a cover of the Standells Boston anthem “Dirty Water”. Harriet and Mann have assembled an all-star cast of musicians to record with Bronson including Kenny Aronoff, Leland Sklar, Michael Landau, Tim Pierce and Mike Inez.

    Key tracks include the Foo Fighters “Everlong” featuring additional lyrics and spoken word by Stephen King and the Standells “Dirty Water” featuring background vocals and spoken word by Red Sox teammates Johnny Damon, Lenny DiNardo and Kevin Youkilis.
