Chad Elliott

  • Stage Left Cafe Woodstock, Illinois (map)

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 over 200 shows each year and is lauded as “Iowa’s Renaissance man” by Culture Buzz. He has cultivated more than 1000 songs in his career while also honing his skills as painter, sculptor, illustrator and author.

Elliott’s early career demonstrates a love of folk, roots and singer-songwriter music. He has worked with many greats and shared the stage with artists of the highest caliber, including Odetta, Tom Paxton, Loudon Wainwright III, R.L. Burnside, Greg Brown and Bo Ramsey. Today, his songwriting has made a marked shift to Americana.
