What is it that moves your soul? For Elwood it has always been the ever awe inspiring serenity and shear power of Mother Nature and you can feel it in his music. The trickle of a small stream, the roar of a thunder cloud, the pure silence of meadow lit by the coming of the sun….it’s these things that sit at the very core of Elwood’s music. Aside from that some of the wide variety of influences he has are: John Prine, Trevor Hall, Breathe Owl Breathe, Medicine for the People, The Eagles, Flobots, Bob Marley, The Tallest Man on Earth, and Mumford & Sons.
After 3 years of playing shows almost every weekend with the Portland based band Bitterroot. Elwood is now setting the intention of getting out the countless songs from his early beginnings as a songwriter and new songs that don’t fall into the groove and style of Bitterroot. With new roots stemming out into a new life with new music and new journey’s who knows where it all will take him…..
