This fall Elliot Root will embark on a U.S. tour with Rainbow Kitten Surprise, kicking off onOctober 1 in Memphis; see below for a list of confirmed dates.
Most recently, PopMatters premiered the track "Lost Man Running," raving that it "is the group's brand new memorable single that highlights Elliot Root's mastery of dynamics as the song goes from quiet, introspective moments to soaring, harmony-driven heights." The song "Wicked Lies" was featured on Spotify's New Music Friday playlist and iTunes' New Artist Spotlight. Also, mxdwn premiered the video for the track "10,000," hailing the clip as "haunting" and praising frontman Scott Krueger's "soulful" vocals. The first track released off of Conjure, "10,000" was featured by Spotify upon release, where it quickly received over 400,000 listens. Watch the video at and share it at
Co-produced by the band's own Melissa Mattey and Krueger alongside Tony High at Nashville's Blackbird Studios and Width Music, Conjure follows the group's Thoughts From Yesterday and II EPs. Elliot Root features Krueger (vocals, guitars), Mattey (keyboards, drum programming), Sean Truskowski (drums) and Todd Bond (guitars).
Writing and recording the album over the course of a year, the band worked out their material at Mattey and High's own Width Music Studio before moving to Blackbird Studios to lay down the tracks. "We would usually start the days off with an idea or two and spend the rest of the day experimenting and letting each idea unfold," explains frontman Krueger. "I don't think we had any sort of preconceived notion as to what we wanted things to sound like, our main goal was to really just get out of our own way and do whatever felt natural at the moment. Eventually we could see a common thread start to run through everything we were writing."
Krueger goes on to note, "Our writers, producers, engineers and mixing engineer are members of the band or live sound team, so the collaboration on the record was really closely knit with almost no outside influence. With the exception of mastering the entire record was created internally."
Releasing their first two EPs in 2015, Elliot Root has quickly gained attention in their hometown of Nashville with the track "Punks and Poets" topping Spotify's "Sounds of Nashville" Top 100 chart and reaching Spotify's U.S. Viral 50 Chart. No Country For New Nashville called the band "loud [and] full of energy...wonderfully electrifying." The band has performed alongside X Ambassadors, Lord Huron, the Zac Brown Band, Michael Franti & Spearhead and more.
