    Razor -- he was my favorite during his season in terms of his voice. AI is searching for someone who is marketable, though, and Elliot is a perfect example of someone who is hugely talented, but not cut out to sell records. Unfortunately, the producers know more than we do, and they were not ready to take a chance on him. I think he was lucky that they let him get as far as he did....but what a great voice!!

    Going to see Elliott next Tuesday (Sept 20th) when he comes to The Jewish Mother again (sort of . . . )

    Last time he was in town, the JewMo was near the oceanfront in a small dark building with limited parking. Now, the have a bright shiny space with lots of parking.

    I am counting the sleeps!

    So excited for you, Little Sew&Sew. He was performing in NYC this past Tuesday night and already there are performance videos up on you tube. He sounds and looks great! Be on the lookout for some new merchandise that they will be selling at the show. Wish I could be there! Have a great time!

    Exciting news for Elliott fans. Today, his third (non-holiday) cd is released. It's titled "Let's Get to What's Real" and his single from this cd "3 Words" has already been released. In Elliott's own words:

    "This album is something that I needed to do, for me," Elliott Yamin says of the aptly-titled Let's Get to What's Real, his third album and his first Purpose Music Group/eOne release. "It feels right, and it feels like who I am as an artist. I wanted to make something raw and soulful and organic, so I went wherever the music moved me."

    "I wanted to get back to making real music with real musicians and real instruments," Yamin says of the new disc. "There were some hints of that on my first album, but my second album was pretty much machine-driven. I like that kind of music too, but this time I wanted to create music about real issues and make a record which reflects this."
    There's a nice little bio on the right hand side of the page.
    Amazon.com: Elliott Yamin: Songs, Albums, Pictures, Bios

    I ordered my copy today from Amazon. I could have downloaded it from I-tunes but I prefer to have a hard copy in my hands. Friday can't get here soon enough.

    Is anyone else enjoying Elliott's new cd as much as I am?

    So I found this sort of randomly since I was actually looking for a different performance but in light of last night on AI and all the praise heaped on Joshua (who didn't do poorly) but I had to post this. The audio is terrible since it's live but Elliot takes this song to skool and back. Man, this is how you do it.

    Elliott is awesome to see live. He really deserves more credit than he gets from the music world. Hoping the support from his fans is enough to keep his self-esteem up there where it should be.

    Evidently not to many. He sold just 2,000 the first week of release.

    Hey Mia, thanks for posting this performance. I've watched it more times than I care to admit. THIS is the type of music Elliott should be singing... he needs to get himself played on the urban stations... heck, if Robin Thicke and Justin Timberlake are accepted by the African-American community, why not Elliott?
