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, illustrator and author. He has worked with many greats and shared the stage with artists of the highest caliber, including Odetta, Tom Paxton, Greg Brown, Bo Ramsey, etc. Today, his songwriting has made a marked shift to Americana.
"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
"Rest Heavy is a high-energy, dynamic work. One of the best parts about listening to the album is the clear sense you get that Elliott is having the time of his life playing and recording these songs." - Lucas Benson, Little Village Magazine (US) review of Rest Heavy
"Elliott’s got a knack for timeless, relatable storytelling, and his songwriting comes with much heart, integrity and vitality." - Take Effect Reviews (US) said of Rest Heavy
