Elmore Magazine writer Jim Hynes reviewed Chad Elliott and The Redemptions upcoming release Rest Heavy:
"Iowa suggests such names as Greg Brown, Bo Ramsey, and Pieta Brown among others but now singer-songwriter, artist and author, Chad Elliott can join their esteemed company with Rest Heavy. ... This album just oozes soul, truth, and seems rather timeless as it could have been recorded almost any time in the last fifty-sixty years." - Jim Hynes, Elmore Magazine

A Soulful Sound interviewed Chad Elliott about his upcoming release of Rest Heavy.
"ASOULFULSOUND: Right out of the gates with the title track, “Rest Heavy,” the listener knows they are about to take a journey with you. What was the inspiration for that song and the decision to make it the album title?
CE: I like songs that can be considered a cross between a love song and a gospel song. Otis Redding sounds like that to me. "Rest Heavy" wrote itself on an Easter Sunday a couple years ago. When we brought it to Sun Studio, the performance went so smoothly, just one take, in the studio I felt like it captured the essence of the sessions."
