About

Elliott BROOD isa three-piece Folk Rock Alt Countryband based in Hamilton, Canada.Their brandof fuzzed-up roots music has always made for a captivating, and freneticliveperformance. That energy has always translated onto the band’s fivepreviouscritically acclaimed records. In2013the band won a Juno Awardfor their World War One inspired album “Days Into Years”. Over the course of their career they have been nominated for a total offive Juno awards. In 2009 theywere shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize andin 2012the band found themselves nominatedfor a Genie Awardfor their original song “West End Sky” that was featured in the film “Grown Up Movie Star”. Their style has been called everything from ‘blackgrass’ to ‘deathcountry,’ but those descriptions don’t capture the transcendent heights of their unique approach to roots music. Fall 2017 will see the band release theirsixth full-lengthstudioalbum“Ghost Gardens” via Paper Bag Records.The title “Ghost Gardens” alludes to a phenomenon whereby the perennial gardens ofhouses and buildings havingbeen abandoned or forgotten for years or even decades, continue togrow and reappear year after year,despitetheir original caretakers' absence.Elliott Brood's “Ghost Gardens”began with the rediscovery oflost demo songs from a decade and a half earlier, the beginning of the bands career to be exact. Themisplaced harddrive had long beenforgotten in a garage,just sitting dormant in an old suitcase. The recordings weredemos and rough pencil sketchesofsong lyrics and melody ideas. Not often in life does a band get to step back in time to rediscover their lost younger selves and get to amend or alter that existence, in an odd way this is the band rediscovering their former selves while simultaneously being years wiser both musically and lyrically. Elliott BROOD are Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet and Stephen Pitkin
