New Album Rest Heavy Releases August 10
Iowa singer-songwriter and author, Chad Elliott, will independently release Rest Heavy: The Sun Studio Sessions on August 10, 2018. Elliott’s writing weaves love, loss and forgiveness into well-worn lyrics with timeless melodies.
With Rest Heavy, Elliott shows his love of roots-rock, soul, and blues music with a rocking band behind his artfully crafted songs and gravelly delivery. The self-produced album was recorded at the famed Sun Studio in Memphis, TN by Ples Hampton. Hampton said, “It was honestly one of the best sessions I've ever had up here. This is gold.”
Elliott, performing on acoustic guitar and harmonica, is joined by his full band, The Redemptions, which includes Tommy Lewis, Travis McFarlane, Kevin Boehnke, Joseph Cafaro and Jim Van Dorn.
“Rest Heavy jumps right at you and doesn’t let go,” said Rob Ellen of The UK’s Medicine Show Radio. “The whole piece has an edge you can shave with.”
