Elliott’s songs are transfixing; his stark honesty combined with his sublime word play draws you into his fascinating world. He has that quality that makes you want to listen and understand underscored with a low key charisma like the hum of a high-voltage wire.
While Elliott has developed a cult following in the folk world, he has been noticed by the popular culture, too. His songs have been heard on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “One Tree Hill” and “Californication.” John has been featured in PASTE Magazine, on National Public Radio and on Neil Young’s “Living With War.”
J. Wagner describes John Elliott as “someone who has opened a different door. He’s found the right room. He’s bold and brave. He out tricked the trickster. He writes only the good parts of co-writes. He’s the real deal, an honest writer.”
Elliott …is brilliant voice in contemporary post-Seinfeld eyebrow rock. He understands the subtle differences between vibin’ and flowin’. He’s an incredible poet and performer. His shows are not to be missed.
