Join Happy Hour hosts Steve McLain and Kevin Riley as they talk to Chad Elliott live on KRUU FM.
Chad Elliott bought his first guitar at an Omaha pawn shop, a dreadnought next to the used guns and knives. He took it home, slowly taught himself to fingerpick and began transposing his poetry writing into original songs. Elliott always believed he’d be an artist. He spent his youthful years drawing, painting and sculpting, but the more he picked on those six-strings, the more he found familiar ground with his words and the imagery he strived to achieve on canvas. Songwriting became painting with his words and performing on stage became his new exhibition. Averaging over 150 shows per year, Elliott has been on the road for more than a decade performing a blend of Americana, roots and country music.
