Elliott BROOD is known for their brand of fuzzed-up roots music, which always makes for a captivating and frenetic live performance. That energy has always translates to the band’s five acclaimed records. Their style has been called everything from ‘blackgrass’ to ‘death country,’ but those descriptions don’t capture the transcendent heights of their unique approach to roots music.
Ghost Gardens’ title alludes to a phenomenon whereby the perennial gardens of houses and buildings having been abandoned or forgotten for years or even decades, continue to grow and reappear year after year, despite their original caretakers’ absence.
The road to Ghost Gardens began with the rediscovery of lost demo songs from early in the band’s career, nearly a decade and a half ago. The misplaced hard drive had long been forgotten in a garage sitting dormant in an old suitcase. The rediscovered recordings were demos and rough sketches of song lyrics and melody ideas. On Ghost Gardens, Elliott BROOD get to relive their past through a lens that is wiser both musically and lyrically.
In 2013, Elliott BROOD won a Juno Award for their World War One-inspired album Days Into Years. Over the course of their career they have been nominated for a total of five Juno awards. In 2009 they were shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize and in 2012 the band found themselves nominated for a Genie Award for their original song “West End Sky” that was featured in the film Grown Up Movie Star.
Elliott BROOD are Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet and Stephen Pitkin.
