David R. Elliott


David R. Elliott is a prolific new face in Canadian songwriting, with a unique perspective anchored in a childhood split evenly between rural and urban poverty. His respect for the craft of song is inclusive of all genres and his exploration of lower working class struggles is a specifically East Coast answer to Bruce Springsteen, Randy Newman and Ryan Adams.

He's won multiple regional awards and garnered critical acclaim for his many releases over the years. He's shared bills with artists like Greys, Mo Kenney, Cousins and Les Hay Babies and performed at such major festivals as Pop Montreal and Canadian Music Week.
