Elliott BROOD is a three-piece, folk-rock/alt-country band based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Their brand of fuzzed-up roots music makes for a captivating and frenetic live performance. That energy has always translated to the band’s five critically acclaimed records. Their style has been called everything from ‘blackgrass’ to ‘death country,’ but those descriptions don’t capture the transcendent heights of their unique approach to roots music.
Fall 2017 saw the band release their sixth full-length studio album Ghost Gardens on Paper Bag Records. The album title alludes to a phenomenon whereby the perennial gardens of houses and buildings having been abandoned or forgotten for years or even decades, continue to grow and reappear year after year, despite their original caretakers’ absence.
In 2013, Elliott Brood won a Juno Award for their World War One inspired album Days Into Years. Over the course of their career they have been nominated for a total of five Juno awards and in 2009 they were shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize, In 2012 the band found themselves nominated for a Genie Award for their original song “West End Sky”, featured in the film Grown Up Movie Star.
Elliott Brood are Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet and Stephen Pitkin.
Born and bred in Buffalo, New York, Jungle taught himself guitar at an early age. After he left home at just 15 he began playing town to town as he traveled up and down the east coast. Streets turned into stages and after a number of years, Jungle returned to his hometown with new life experiences and new heart-wrenching lyrics. Now, his soulful vocals can be heard from the iconic Nietzsche’s stage in his hometown, Buffalo as well as many others in the region. Jungle Steve recently won this year’s Singer-Songwriter competition at Penny Lane Cafe in Clarence.
