"On Elliott’s March 2013 release, Rearrange, he melodically picks his way through the simplicity of a worn working man’s resignation and the youthful resilience of his distorted guitar riffs. Themes of romance run deep throughout the album matching the highs and lows of Elliott’s sounds."


"Each of the tracks seemingly describe different stages of relationships, from courtship to heartbreak. With heavy substance to his writing – both lyrically and instrumentally – there is a certain lore to Elliott’s storytelling that resurges your infatuation with the country genre. The distorted guitar riffs on opener “Flower Dress” embody the raw electric angst held within the lyrics, feeding right into the immediate passion of third song “Foolish Lips.” On the most far-out track on the album, the almost eerie psychedelic darkness to the guitar pushes “Shadows” into the next dimension."
