John Elliott with guest Dusty Pascal
John Elliotts music has been called tear at your heartstrings, folksy and a surreal and trippy cool kind of pop thing. It has also been referred to as Post-Seinfeld, Post 9/11 Eyebrow Rock. Regarding Elliotts lyrics, Chuck Schiele of The San Diego Troubadour says, They get in, make their statement, kick you in the teeth, and get out before they start talking too muchAnd this lends to the urge of rolling any track to its beginning for another spin.

Elliotts catchy tunes, clear voice and chill-inducing melodies have been likened to a young Paul Simon, John Flansburgh and Ben Gibbard, as well as Gregory Page, Jason Mraz, Christopher Dale, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. Schiele continues to speak about Elliotts vocals as such: a lullaby of a voice that's likeable and believable. There's a stylistic melancholy tone and charisma in his voice... Another independent review of one of Elliotts albums reads, The songwriting rivals any Radiohead/Coldplay hype the record labels could come up with. Who says folk music is dead

One of the best kept secrets on the acoustic scene, Elliotts voice and lyrics  with a definite Americana bent  can also be heard on an episode of the CWs One Tree Hill, NPR (All Songs Considered/Open Mic), Neil Young's Living With War website, radio stations all over the world, in cars, in backyards, on iPods and at campfires. His songs have been called, intimate, honest, ripe with observant detail and a reliable playfulness.

In July 2009, Elliott was featured as an Emerging Artist on the main stage at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. At about the same time, the creators of the film Rabbit Fever announced that Elliott had written and performed a haunting contagious ballad that would appear in one of the most pivotal scenes of the film. The track was simply titled Rabbit Fever, and prompted the films creators to declare, If you dig artists such as Elliot Smith, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Iron & Wine and John Mayer, you will appreciate the charming, folksy, mellow quality of John Elliots style.

Elliott was also recently selected as the first alternate in the 2010 Telluride Troubadour competition  that is spot 11 out of 500+.

Dusty Pas'cal is from just down the road a piece, beautiful Skaneateles. He's considered by many to be one of the top singer/songwriters in Central New York.

Dusty says that since he first picked up a guitar at age 13, hes been a firm believer in the purity of his music. Early on, I was influenced by guys like Kris Kristofferson and Jim Croce, because that's who my dad listened to, he said. But actually, I was most influenced by my dad, whos a songwriter himself.

Lonesome is a heartbreaking ballad that includes lyrics written by Dusty's father. My dad came to one of my shows, and I could see him just sitting there writing something, he recalls. Dusty's dad was in fact writing a poem about a friend of his who was on death's door, so Dusty set the poem  without changing a single word, he said  to music. I know my dad so well, it just flowed out naturally."

Dustys three studio albums, Home (2006), More (2008), and Human Heart (2012) have garnered attention in Central New York and across the nation; several tracks have been featured on local radio stations and internationally on XM Satellite Radio. He is currently working on his next album, November Left Me.

Dusty will move you from one end of music's emotional spectrum to the other - and it will be a ride you'll want to take again and again.
