Luke Elliot’s style is timeless, his songs tell stories and comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, or Tom Waits are therefore not uncommon.” Rolling Stone

“…a master of accessible, twisted, gothic Americana.” Mojo

New Jersey native Luke Elliot’s forthcoming full-length album ‘Let ‘Em All Talk’ is due to be released May 19th via Icons Creating Evil Art. The Pre-order link is HERE .

Today he releases the Johan Lundsten-directed video for the dark and twisted single “William Tell” Watch it HERE.  Elliot says about the song ” I was always fascinated with William S. Burroughs. This song is about him killing his wife by placing a glass of whiskey on her head, trying to re-enact the myth of William Tell. Burroughs was hiding out in Mexico, facing drug charges. After her death, he went back to the States and his career really began with Junkie.”

Musically, an eclectic mix of influences pumps through Elliot’s veins that range from John Coltrane, Duke Ellington and Dylan to The Cramps, Gun Club, and Mink DeVille, to films by spaghetti western inventor, as well as Badlands, Pulp Fiction, Natural Born Killers. His interest in film didn’t finish with music, it’s also taken him to the big screen. It turned out the multitalented Elliot has acting skills as well. He performed his song “All On Board” in the Norwegian TV series hit “Exit”, Norway’s most streamed series ever, and he played against Carrie-Anne Moss from The Matrix in the crime series “Wisting”.
