Embarking on his journey of preserving the Outlaw Country crusade, Rick Elliot spent much of 2014 touring his upbeat country sound starting with the wild west of California. Armed with a fifth of whiskey and a deep mature voice far beyond his years, Rick stuns audiences from the very start. His numerous musical heroes and inspiration is derived from many of the country greats, including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard ad Waylon Jennings.
Attraction to the piano as a child was the initial inspiration for Rick Elliot in his journey as an emerging musician. His curiosity developed into a desire and he quickly advanced into a young child prodigy. Rick fell in love with country music at a young age. As he entered his teens his passion for music deepened as he experimented with songwriting.
Lyrically, his tracks are a reflection of his everyday life, incorporating themes of love, loss and a little whiskey. As a multi-instrumentalist Rick lends his piano, and guitar skills to all the tracks on his upcoming releases. 2015 marks a monumental moment in Rick Elliot’s journey as he prepares to release his unparalleled sound, starting with his single, “West of the Rockies”.
