arlo is a NYC-based songwriter with central-Texas roots. The debut release of his 2018 self-titled record was co-written and produced by Houston-based producer, Eric Jarvis, at crushpad productions. The 10-song true-story expression of love and loss caught the attention of the powerhouse music producing duo, brothers Kristian Bush and Brandon Bush (Sugarland, Dark Water) and renowned Atlanta-based studio engineer Tom Tapley (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Train, Wallflowers) and plans were set in motion to record the follow-up EP in Atlanta.
Arlo’s anticipated follow-up EP “Lonely Soldier” is set to release in 2022 alongside plans to return to Central Texas. The 6-song production was tracked in Tapley’s Atlanta studio, West End Sound, and is a production collaboration of long-time musical co-conspirator Eric Jarvis (co-producer, bass, backing vocals) and the Bush Brothers’ (co-producers, keyboards, acoustic guitar) hand-picked heavy hitters Benji Shanks (guitar) and Travis McNabb (drums). Together the team has sculpted a carefully realized and economically structured blend of Americana Pop Rock. arlo was named a finalist in the 2021 John Lennon Songwriting Competition, and is a two-time recipient of the 2021 Unsigned Only International Music Competition. He has been featured in various music blogs as well as national news segments.
