The Elliotts are an Indie Rock and busking band based in Melbourne, Australia. Founded by Tasmanian singer/songwriter Robbie Elliott who is aided by multi instrumentalist James “Wally” Howlett on bass/acoustic/vocals.
The duo often perform with drummers including Robbie's brother Lewis Elliott, fellow busker Mr Clyde and Firefighter Ash Joy.
In 2015 The Elliotts released a self produced EP: “Warriors” which has sold over 5,000 copies. The following year the band released “Aeroplane” which saw them tour in both Europe and the US; playing a successful showcase at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
Their indie rock sound features a close harmony style which has been referred to as “a post Millenium Hollies” by Bud Scooper of US Rolling Stone and resonated with a Neil Finn support earlier this year.
Their new EP titled “Whatever Gets You There” was recorded at Bernard Fanning's studio in Byron Bay and produced by Nick Didia (Train, Bruce Springsteen). It features 7 songs and is due out in 2018
