T.C. Elliott 20


Columbia USA   Jan 2008


Artist Bio

Influences:   Bottle Rockets, Holy Modal Rounders (Stampfel and Weber), Norman Blake, Hendrix, SRV, Buddy Guy, Classic Rock, Bluegrass, The Blues, Neil Young

If Neil Young and The Holy Modal Rounders had a litter of baby songwriters then T.C. Elliott would be the runt of the litter.

T.C. has written over 1100 songs and at least one of them doesn't suck.

The Earth without art is just Eh!

I've just released my first bandcamp album as a solo artist. You can find it here in both digital and CD formats:

    Know what you mean about being "inspired" by the reviews of others. I try not to read any of them until I've written my own for that reason. Thx for the review.

  • @mleverette  16 hours

    Thanks for your comments on We Will Win, bud! I'm going to check out your songs in a moment. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Holy crap! Congrats on the win. Is this a record for you?

    Hey, thanks for checking out a bit of my movie score! "I've always wondered" is not set to a specific sequence of events, though many of my other tracks are. I'm taking a hybrid approach, making things fit specific scenes, while also generating content to string throughout the movie as needed. Or something like that.

    Thanks so much for your kind comment on my skirmish song!

    Okay, I emailed you something. Check your Spam Museum folder. Have you ever been to the Spam Museum? It's really quite impressive, I took the tour last August.

    I downloaded it and keep listening to it five times consecutively... This is just wonderful...

  • @arthurrossi 1 day

    Hey TC! I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful song that you created for "Last Dance Second Chance", it is absolutely gorgeous... I love the melody, your guitar play and what a great vocal delivery! The chorus is totally catchy and memorable, I love it so much!

  • @charliecheney  1 day

    Hey, I'm all caught up actually, and the honor would be all mine. Any themes or ideas you'd like me to consider before I start?

    Thanks for your comment on Little Pieces ๐Ÿ˜€ that pause after the bridge was just me scrolling down so I could read the rest of my lyrics haha, but I'm glad you enjoyed it! And it was just me and my guitar, no uke ๐Ÿ˜

    Courtney Barnett is a really great guitar player too. First time I saw her it was a power trio and she was singing all the songs and playing all the leads. I like her style, not clinical but wall-of-sound distorted squalls

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  2 days

    I love hearing what our songs sound like! ๐Ÿ˜€
    I have zero level of butt hurt in that area.
    I'm open to critique and comparison! ๐Ÿ˜€ I was shooting for this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KNsB...

    Aw TC, if you liked my Fire Pig then I'm winning. tbh I also thought of jalapenos and a spicy pork burger....only because I am a chilli head and couldn't stop thinking about that kinda heat when I wrote it! Thank you so much for your amazingly kind words on 'Fire Pig' ๐Ÿ˜

    Interesting was just trying to make nonsense words that rhymed - had no idea they might be in urban dictionary ...

  • @kahlo2013  3 days

    Aww thanks much - I LOVE collaborating with everyone (hint) but Val was one of my early collaborators and has been kind enough to work with me on several songs and guide me in the process so we now have a pretty good feel of each other's quirkiness and comfort zones which makes it fun and easy to collaborate.

    Thanks for your words on Can you hear me - others have said the punk thing also - can you suggest a reference track or two in that style I could start with? I finally understand reference tracks now, and I'm excited to try working with one. Thanks in advance!

  • @spinhead  1 week

    Finally putting out some thanks: I really appreciate your comment on "Don't Want to Sleep." I think most listeners missed the point, but I'll never argue with "I wouldn't change a thing." Groovy.

  • @oblivionratula  2 weeks

    Thanks for the feedback on Just Let It Happen. I think it's just coming down to having heard the track WAY too many times. In a row. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We'll see what it sounds like to me at the end of the month.

    I'll be sure to check out your tracks later or tomorrow.

  • @johncrossman  2 weeks

  • @engebretsen  2 weeks

    Thx for comments on "If I Said Iยดm Sorry" Much appreciated. Also that you think my vocal is ok.

  • @dutch1967 2 weeks

    I got what you meant. I donโ€™t mind comparison at all. For one, I may discover something new I really like.
    We razz eachother all the time in my band. All in good humor. We know how to praise eachother too

  • @brrrse  2 weeks

    Thanks for the comments and listen on To just be. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @dutch1967 2 weeks

    Thanks for that comment on Perspective Blues. yeah, not being a bass player doesn't help with the 'busy'. Is it timing? Is it just too much? I know I'll get heck from my bass player when I play this to the band. "Less is more", I always say. I'll get that thrown back at me for sure.
    I don't know who this Keb Mo is, will have to check out if your comparison is indeed evil. hahahaha, I'm just glad you found something in there that you like. Appreciate you stopping by.

  • @mungus  2 weeks

    Haha, thank's for listening, I was surprised at how the song went too - I wrote the music for the end section first - didn't like it, so tried to write something more serious, wanted it back and had to force satyrical lyrics to compliment (or at try to match) with the original tone

    Happy you enjoyed it

    Can never have too many guitars

  • @wacha  2 weeks

    Thanks for listening to "Adrift". Yes, I'm playing C C7 F G7. I write most of my FAWM stuff on ukulele on my lunch break. Using the ukulele lets me play chords I normally wouldn't bother with and then forces me to make it work on guitar.

    That really is a good question. I'm pretty sure there are at least a few other FAWMers in between here and there. Maybe we need to have a FOP this year? Or at the very least, get some drinks when one of us is in town.

    Good to see you back again!

  • @caterwauler 4 weeks

    Since Hoops has left, I visited his soundboard many times and couldn't write a word on it. I tried to reply in the forum threads dedicated to him, and remained tongue tied. And I was at a loss to write a song for or about him too. Yet today you come to me and leave me this message, and it feels like his voice reaching out from beyond to tell me he hates that his passing has silenced me.
    Thank you so much for this meaningful moment.
    Glad to see you around too, wishing you a great FAWM. โค๏ธ
