Beats, Burgers and Brew is pleased to Welcome Tom “Satch” Kerans, the 2009 runner-up in the 92.5 The River Rising Star contest is a singer, songwriter and guitarist drawing on such influences as Tom Petty, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Barry and The Remains. The founder and front man of the Boston based band the Catalinas, he has opened shows for many national acts including Little Steven Van Zandt, NRBQ, Charlie Sexton and South Side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. In fact, Kerans opened a show for Roy Orbison four days before the legendary singer’s untimely death.
Kerans has steadily garnered national and local press; David Mead, in the September October (2009) issue of American Songwriter, declared “Satch Kerans is doing his damndest to preserve what seems to have always worked: stories about people in conflict set to familiar melodies and arrangements... Kerans doesn’t stray too far from any previously beaten paths, but a certain authenticity in his delivery makes you like him for it all the more. You really wouldn’t want him to be any other way”. In a recent feature story that ran in the Boston Globe music critic Jonathan Perry wrote, “years after settling into an entirely different identity and new set of priorities - reemerges with some of the best songs he's ever written... nodded in sound and temperament to his longtime heroes Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, as well as ex-Dream Syndicate frontman Steve Wynn and Mark Knopfler. At the collection's core was a clutch of sturdy melodies and classic pop structures”. Kerans, who has garnered extensive airplay on Boston radio stations including WXRV (The River) WAAF and WUMB. is currently working on his fifth solo CD. Catch him at a venue near you!
