Myron Elkins didn't set out to become a full-time musician. After graduating from high school, the then 17-year-old instead became a welder in his hometown of Otsego, Michigan, and had every intention of making that his career. However, fate had other plans. Three years ago, a relative signed him up for a battle of the bands at a local venue, despite the fact Elkins only prior experience with live music was playing at church and a few bars in the small Michigan town where he grew up. With just three weeks' notice, Elkins put a band together featuring three of his cousins and a friend. Although the group didn't win (they came in second), the experience opened Elkins's eyes to a very different career path.

Now, at 21 years old, he's poised to become one of musics' most intriguing new artists with the release of his Dave Cobb-produced debut album, Factories, Farms & Amphetamines, via Elektra/Low Country Sound. Across the album's ten tracks, Elkins crafts sharp observations informed by his working-class upbringing, infusing his music with rich personal experience. I actually wrote a lot of these songs on the album in my head while I was welding, he says. I just loved to play and write all of the time. Finding people who want to do that with you isn't always easy, but we made it work. And with this bunch of songs, it made it all worth it.
Musically, Factories, Farms & Amphetamines reflects the gritty mix of classic rock, country and the blues Elkins heard growing up, putting the album squarely in the league of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bob Seger, and the Allman Brothers. Fittingly, Elkins also boasts a wise-beyond-his-years voice with a broad range.
