Listen to Chad Elliott as he dives into his artfully crafted songs and love of roots-rock, soul and blues music.
Like the dark earth of his Iowa origins, Chad Elliott's life has served as fertile ground for music. Elliott has turned love, loss, fatherhood, divorce and homelessness into lyrics. He performs more than 200 shows each year and is lauded as “Iowa’s Renaissance man” by Culture Buzz. He has cultivated more than 1,000 songs in his career while also honing his skills as painter, sculptor and children's book author/illustrator (Wilderman’s Treetop Tales).
"This is Americana at its finest... Elliott has immersed himself in gospel, blues, roots-rock, and white-boy R’n’B to the point where he comes across as a striking combo of Fogerty, Mellencamp and Springsteen." - Mike Greenblatt, Goldmine Magazine (US) review of Rest Heavy, Chad’s latest album.
