Elliot Thomas is an Edmonton-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
With a pioneering spirit and a distinctively rich and expressive voice, Elliot Thomas emerges with a heart heavy with the blues, ears ringing with the sound of the banjo, and an insatiable yearning for new sonic landscapes that has lead him to a poetic and soulful style all of his own. A versatile guitarist and an innovator the lap slide guitar, he has also developed a unique voice on the 5-string banjo. Over the shifting textures that he forges with these instruments Elliot sings songs of sorrow, hope, growth and fishing. Drawing inspiration from blues, old-time, jazz, and world music traditions as well as from contemporary singer-songwriters, Elliot's sound is fresh and daring, yet relatable. He released his debut album Through the Darkness and the Cold in November 2016, and is now working on music for his sophomore album.
