The Elms are an American Rock And Roll band, formerly under Sparrow/EMI Records, currently recording under Universal Records South. They are known for their breed of midwestern, rootsy rock, with the essence of the music of the 60's and 70's.
Musically, the band has been compared by critics to The Black Crowes, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Cream for their blues-tinged, instrumentally sparse arrangements. Lyrically, The Elms continue to gravitate towards writing songs revolving around observations of their small-town upbringing and the struggles facing many middle-Americans.
The Elms have become known for their raucous, energetic live performances, and are considered by many to be one of the top new live rock bands in America. The band's U.S. touring in 2006-2008 saw them perform with Goo Goo Dolls, Cracker, Shooter Jennings, Buddy Guy, Los Lonely Boys, Will Hoge, Gin Blossoms, and rock legend Peter Frampton among others.
The Elms are currently working on the follow-up to 2006's critically-acclaimed Universal release, "THE CHESS HOTEL."
