From playing beneath the crumbled ceiling at the Terminal Bar in Minneapolis, where he got his start, to standing on stage at radio city music hall as the musical director and multi-instrumentalist for Eric Hutchinson, in the world of music, Elliott has done it all.
Currently living in Nashville and working on his soon to be released third solo effort, he has come a long way from starting his career in Chanhassen, Minnesota across the lake from Prince and Paisley Park. Since then he has played guitar, keys, bass, hammond, squeezebox and sang in some of the dirtiest clubs, ritziest hotels, tiniest cafes, and most legendary venues around the world.
While on the road with Hutchinson, Elliott recently finished a U.S. tour in support of Kelly Clarkson and Pentatonix and is getting ready for a summer run with Matt Nathanson and Phillip Phillips. Elliott can be found playing solo shows with the soul and originality that has endeared him to crowds around the country.
