After a brief stint in Birmingham upon finishing his degree, Elliott made his way out west to Las Vegas, NV, eventually ending up in Southern California.
His original music is heavily influenced by the finger-style guitar playing and songwriting of James Taylor, Townes van Zandt, Jerry Reed, Paul Simon, and more. He recently released his debut album, Hank, with the help of his producer, Tim Hall. It can be found on all streaming services.

The track has garnered over 3.5 million streams on Spotify and over 14 million views on YouTube, peaking at #12 on YouTube's trending music.
In addition to his original music ventures, Elliott offers solo acoustic performances, or full band performances for all types of events (i.e. rehearsal dinners, weddings, corporate engagements, etc.). His sets offer a wide array of music from country and folk to classic rock standards by artists such as Hank Williams, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty, Paul Simon, James Taylor and more.
