John Elliott writes gripping stream-of-consciousness songs that often take unexpected turns en route to delivering a powerful message. Chuck Schiele of The San Diego Troubadour wrote about Elliott’s lyrics: “They get in, make their statement, kick you in the teeth, and get out before they start talking too much.” Now based in San Francisco, he has performed all over the world. His music has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy, Californication, and on NPR. With Appalachian influences, Cajun, dust bowl, and a dash of rockabilly, John Roy Zat comes from a long line of American singer-songwriters who occupy that space between traditional country and folk music. He has been performing in the Bay Area since the 70’s. Kate Wolf recorded his words to “Midnight On The Water” for her second album, with John playing fiddle. His three CDs have all received consistent airplay on independent radio and charted on the Roots Music Report.
