Carol Elliott's clear, penetrating voice and songwriting
intelligence place her in the forefront of folk music's singer-songwriters.
Her new CD "The People I Meet" debuted on Gavin's Americana chart
in June 1997 giving credibility to the claim that Elliott's music and popularity
are on the rise and worthy of attention. An Atlanta native, Elliott started
performing during her summer breaks from college at Stone Mountain Park in Georgia
and Opryland U.S.A. in Tennessee. After graduating with a degree in English
from the University of the South she moved to San Francisco. There for a traditionally
raised southern belle, she began the unlikely career of street singer with occasional
opening slots for David Crosby and John Hammond at the Great American Music
Elliott moved to Nashville to seriously pursue her songwriting and worked as a staff writer for Sony/Tree and Hayes Street Publishing. She also worked as a production assistant for country producers Steve Gibson and Steve Buckingham as well as holding the post of Executive Coordinator for Dolly Parton's record label Blue Eye Records.
Her first major cut was with Michael Martin Murphey. The song "Corn, Water & Wood" (co-written with Wendy Waldman) won the Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame for Best Western Song of the Year. At this point, Elliott decided to bridge out and start her own publishing company, Loupgarou Publishing, and her own record company, Heartstrong Records. She has released five cassettes including two which are still in print, "The Monster in My Dreams" and 'Be Yourself," and a new CD, The People I Meet." Elliott was a New Folk finalist at the 1994 Kerrville Folk Festival and since then has been a regular on the mainstage of both the summer and fall festivals. In Spring 1997 she performed on the Women of Kerrville Tour with Tish Hinojosa, Eliza Gilkyson, Christine Albert and Catie Curtis as they wowed Dallas, Houston and Austin while promoting the Kerrville Folk Festival.
Along with her Women of Kerrville touring partners, Elliott, Dar Williams, Cheryl Wheeler and others, appear on the 1996 'Women of Kerrville" compilation CD released by Silverwolf Records. Elliott also appears on the "Kerrville Folk Festival: 1995 Highlights" CD.
Performing Songwriter magazine and Bob Oermann of Nashville's Music Row magazine both say, "This woman has been an inside-Nashville, acoustic-music secret for far too long." Oermann goes on to say, "She's a gentle charmer with equal strengths as a writer, instrumentalist and vocalist... all the comparisons in the world won't prepare you to love her the way you will."
