Bio (scroll down)

With hundreds of gigs behind him – and a coveted Danny Kyle Award from Celtic Connections 2013 – Elliott Morris has a formidable reputation as one of the hardest-working and most sought-after young artists on the acoustic scene.

The singer-songwriter, featured in Acoustic magazine as ‘The Next Big Thing’, taps the strings and beats the guitar’s body to create an intricate spectacle, together with an original and unique sound integral to his songs.

Half English, half Scottish and raised in Wales and Lincolnshire, Elliott has always been one to enjoy travelling, and this is evident in his almost constant touring schedule. He’s played all across the British Isles, from Orkney to Brighton, to Clonakilty in Ireland.

Elliott’s versatile blend of folk, pop and rock has complemented a range of major artists he has supported. These include Erik Mongrain, Andy McKee, Frank Turner, Seth Lakeman, Lau, Big Country, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, The Joy Formidable, Jim Bob (Carter USM), Jimmy Wahlsteen, Jon Gomm, Roddy Woomble (Idlewild), Mark Morriss (The Bluetones), Lucy Rose, Brian Kennedy, legendary Philadelphia soul groups The Stylistics and The Three Degrees, and revered folk veterans Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick. He has been joined on stage a number of times by Ed Sheeran, Alan Thomson (The John Martyn Band), Boothby Graffoe, Mike Vass and Innes Watson and even YouTube comedy sensation, Slomozovo – Chris ‘Bing’ Bingham.

Between October 2013 and April 2014, Elliott supported Paul Carrack (Squeeze, Mike + The Mechanics, Eric Clapton) on many of his UK tour dates, including shows at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, Sage, Gateshead, The Lowry, Salford and Cambridge Corn Exchange. He joined back up with Paul Carrack in November to again play support on the 2014-2015 tour, his first date being at the London Palladium. Elliott played 5 slots at Celtic Connections 2014 and summer festivals including Hop Farm Festival, Towersey Folk Festival, Warwick Folk Festival, Beverley Folk Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, The London Acoustic Guitar Show and Ullapool Guitar Festival. He also played headline shows in Germany and the Netherlands in October 2014, and toured the UK with fellow acoustic friends Will McNicol and Chris Woods.
