A polished alternative rock group hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, Elliot Root is a five-piece band that, as it happens, features no musicians named "Elliot" or "Root." Instead, the lineup includes Scott Krueger on vocals, guitar, and keyboards, Todd Bond on guitar, Melissa Mattey on keyboards and vocals, Justin Smith on bass and vocals, and Sean Truskowski on drums and vocals. Elliot Root formed in 2009, and slowly but surely built an audience in their hometown as they honed their sound through live work. After establishing themselves as a club attraction in Nashville, they began earning spots at regional music festivals and opening for the likes of the Zac Brown Band and Michael Franti & Spearhead. In 2014, Elliot Root made their recorded debut with a four-song release, er/ep, and in 2015 they issued two more EPs, II and Thoughts from Yesterday. In 2017, as they continued to gain new fans as one of Nashville's most popular indie rock bands, they issued their first full-length album, Conjure. ~ Mark Deming
