The Canadian trio Elliott Brood from Hamilton/Ontario can be viewed in every respect as an exemplary, tradition-conscious and at the same time contemporary alt-country band. This is not only reflected in their sound, which is always characterized by a reverent attitude towards the "Great American Songbook", which combines wonderfully with their passionate joy in powerful fuzz and distortion sounds.

Their self-image as a productive and consistent formation also draws inspiration from the history of American roots and folk music. Instead of following well-trodden country paths, the band prefers to choose their own, acoustically demanding path through the dense thicket of the idiosyncratic underground.
While Elliott Brood, the storyteller of their songs, observes cities, people and their lifestyles, he often shakes his head at the needs and desires of modern people.
