Known for his seemingly limitless piano prowess and 'silky smooth voice that seems as if it is caressing the air' (New York Times), Elliot has been hailed as one of the city's most dynamic musical talents.
A reverent interpreter of the Great American Songbook in both his nuanced singing and piano playing, he is just as comfortable letting loose in arena style rock/pop as well as his original R&B tinged music as part of the up and coming soul duo JennΑndElliot. He is equal parts vocalist, pianist, instructor, writer and personality; sliding smoothly through musical worlds and constantly gaining the praise and attention of everyone from jazz critics to renowned Broadway veterans.
A masters graduate of the prestigious Manhattan School of Music jazz arts program, off-broadway credits include Our Sinatra at the world famous Oak Room, Mid Twenties at Manhattan Theater Source, and his sold out performance as 'Jesus' in the concert version ofJesus Christ Superstar at the Living Room.
Elliot is also a seasoned voice instructor and coach; he has aided students in contemporary/studio singing elements such as 'riffing', blues singing, jazz scatting and many stylistic elements that have formally been ignored, discouraged or incorrectly examined in a private vocal setting. Elliot's students have appeared on XFactor, in National Broadway Tours (Cats, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Rent, Hair) and countless recording projects across the country and around the world. www.elliotrothmusic.com
