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!
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:
There's a nice little bio on the right hand side of the page.Quote:
"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."

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.
