Elliot Root's Debut Album 'Conjure' Out Now on E.R. Recordings

Up-and-coming Nashville band Elliot Root's full-length debut Conjure is out now on E.R. Recordings/Thirty Tigers. This fall, the band is set to embark on a U.S tour with Rainbow Kitten Surprise kicking off on October 1 in Memphis. See below for a full list of confirmed dates. Co-produced by the band's own Scott Krueger and Melissa Mattey alongside Tony High at Nashville's Blackbird Studios and Width Music, Conjure follows the group's two EPs Thoughts From Yesterday and II. Elliot Root features frontman 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, Elliot Root 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.
