If Nick Cave and Wilco went on tour covering Johnny Cash songs, Elliott Brood would open – and they'd holler out "Jackson" with foot stomps and whiskey-drenched vocals. Civil war storytellers and DetroitRiver rats, Elliott Brood do for pre-war folk music what bands like The White Stripes and Black Keys do for blues.
The trio of death-country pioneers have been working harder than ever, building mysteries and amassing fans across Canada and overseas. After completing their mini-tour of Europe and The UK, Elliott Brood returned to Canada and headed west. Across the nation, voices swelled and square dancing reigned supreme as the Brood took their turn in each city. One by one, they won the hearts and stole the shows.
"Impassioned, shining, melodious music…bringing to mind Conor Oberst, Palace and acoustic Uncle Tupelo… an essential purchase." – Americana UK
