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 the runt would be T.C. Elliott
T.C. has written over 1000 songs and at least one of them doesn't suck.

Thanks for your encouraging comments and support on my various superskirmish ramblings this past weekend. It was great fun playing with you and the other folks for all those hours. Have a great week.
Thanks for the compliments on my skirmish song. Was the first one I did this year and I might start treating all my songwriting projects like this. Gets a lot of judgment out of the way.
i'm not really all that kind, TC; had you been here, i think you'd have seen my eyes bug out at the harmonies. really great!
Hi TC. Thanks for listening to my song, and thanks for your kind comments!
I didn't even think of "Over The Edge" having a (or multiple) double meanings. But you're so right. Ahahaha. And it makes me snicker with the pleasure of an inside joke.
Hey TC, glad you liked "Drive-Thru!", thanks for the review comments, judging SpinTunes gotta be a lot of work! 😎
Thanks for the nice fawmcast today! I really enjoyed listening 😀
That's an excellent idea actually. Thank you for your kind words.
Thanks for the comment TC!
Thanks for listening and commenting on He's Wounded It. i'm glad you liked the overall track. There is a balance I try to achieve with obscuring the vocal bits but keeping them audible. In general while I mix for all kinds of speakers, the details come out better with quality headphones. Really appreciated your feedback.
Thanks for listening and commenting on "Truth". I'll fix the ending. It's there, just got cut off. By the time I heard it I was too far along to go back and risk a power outage. Maybe tomorrow.
Thanks muchly for your comments on Dammit! Isle; I'm obliged! (We've rectified the non-downloadable issue.) I'm very glad you enjoyed the song so much. Stephen pitched an excellent setup!
I miss you, too. Got our guitar out last night. 😀
Love you, bro.
Thanks so much TC!
I haven't been on here much because work was more intense even than last year (if possible?) going to do my best to get a couple more tracks up before Feb comes to a close!
Congrats on the win already and thanks for the comments on 2 of mine. It is a difficult subject to depict and I had not picked up on the sudden ending to bass lift. It certainly is not meant to be symbolic and fades much more in my pre render version.
Thanks a lot for checking out my song, and for all of your fine compliments. i was looking to do something plain and simple, so I'm happy you liked it.
Nice! I just get started on my 15-day Pink Fawm and you've already got 14 songs? Intros and Outros? Oh I see, you need more songs. Fawmcasts! Those count. And little pigs with wings count for two songs, if you can find them.
Hi, TC. Geoff and I have made Dammit! Isle downloadable, so feel free to do with it what you see fit.
Thanks for adding one of our tracks to the recommended forum topic! 😀
LOL @ you "totally not endorsing stalking" 😉
So uh.. I just realized that I hadn't commented on any of your songs yet, despite having listened to almost all of them (and enjoyed them too!). So... hope you don't mind the spam 😝
Also, thanks for listening to my tracks, and I'm glad you enjoyed them! As for the solo acoustic style you want more of, I'm planning on doing a #3in10 of solo acoustic guitar soon, so stay tuned 😁
Thank you for your encouragement.
I would like to thank you so much for dropping by and for your lovely comment!
Damn TC, I had to go back and listen to Selenium again. Man. I wish I still wrote and recorded with that sort of fearless abandon and drive sometimes. It's funny how you slowly change and evolve over the years isn't it?
Thanks for your comments. We were trying for the stones sound, leaving lots of space on the guitar. Still working on a sound.
Thanks for your comment on "Sweat and Blood". I like that chorus too. When I have more than an hour, I might fix it up a bit.
You can read all about hippo blood sweat online. Interesting stuff. Now, I don't imagine it would be effective to farm hippos for their blood sweat -- that was just something for the song. 😉
Hey! Thanks for commenting on my track 'where you dedicated it all,' I appreciated your note on my vocals - I try to keep my lyrics and their delivery honest and empathetic to the subject matter - and I can be quite a resigned person haha. Looking forward to listening through your songs soon, you've made awesome headway, pushes the rest of us to push just as hard! Thank you
Thanks for the nice comment on my "Reflections" skirmish song. That sad country stuff is squarely in my comfort zone.
Thx for comments on reflections - skirmish. As I said I had an awesome hour this time. Don´t think I can do that again. But fun it was.
Ok, so they know both words. But I was trying to use a word which lent itself to the skirmish.
Yeah, I was trying something different for the mysterious song. Not my MIDI software. I mean, there are drums. My software doesn't have any notion of drums outside of a simple metronome.
<3 You get me. You really get me, TC.
Thanks so much for commenting!
thanks for your comment on my song about Hoops- means alot, thank you for saying what ya did...
Thanks for the comments, and for featuring me on the 'cast!
TC! Thanks so much for your kind words...
T.C. !!! Thank you so very much for your comments on my song "When You Ain't"! And I'm so thankful and honored by your including it in FAWMcast!!! Lastly Thanx for bringing me to your tunage!!
Thank you again so much for playing our song on your Podcast!! 😀
Hi TC, thanks for the kind comments.
Thank you so much for playing my song on the fawmcast! 😀
Thanks for your feedback on "Eldorado!" That's actually a midi saxophone you're hearing.
Congratulations on hitting Century Club! 😀
Thanks for finding "Florid" flowery. 😀
Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it a lot.
thanks for "the Vision" feedback, loved it! I am watching you!
Hey there T! 😁
Thank you for your encouraging comment on A Little More Time. 😀
Thanks for the kind words and inclusion on the podcast, good sir!
Thanks for listening to the kazoo symphony! He's walking on air. -metalfoot
Sending over the mp3 to your gmail. Thanks so much! We really appreciate that you liked it so much. 😀
Hey TC, sent you an email but my gmail server's been acting up. Please confirm that you got it. Thanks! I'm honored. 😀
Hi T.C. thanks for stopping by and for your feedback on my song. Working through your stuff... Impressed 😀
Thanks for your comment! I see I have been negligent listening to your work- will start toe remedy that now!
Thanks very much 😀 I just added bits and pieces as it went along...tried to create the impression of it moving even though it doesn't really change
Thank you for your interest in playing our song on your podcast. I'm just checking with David to see if he's cool with it!! 😀 I'll let you know as soon as I can.
Thanks also for your comment on my first uke song. It sure was a rough one! My humming was supposed to be a stand-in for another instrumental solo, but who knows what'll come of it.
Anyway, I saw your one take challenge. It always impresses me how well people record with just one take, including your piece. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough, but for now, I'll have to keep on practicing. Thanks again for the encouraging words, and I'll be looking forward to more songs from you.
Thanks for your comments on my song "Walden Pond." I find that every time I read Walden I get something different out of it. The song was supposed to be inspired by the images more so than *about* the book.
Thanks for your comment on my chord song. Yeah, I wasn't sure if using inversions and bass notes would be cheating, but hey - it's a song. Have a great weekend! 😀
Oh man. That's so perfect. 😀
Thanks for the listen, T.C.!
oh TC, you warmed my heart. i will try to strike "just" from my vocabulary. it's lazy and equivocal and, in this case perhaps, self-deprecating. thanks for splashing my face with a friendly and loving correction. <3
Thanks TC, but the Gravedigger died when I lost contact with Luke Adro. The original Rock Operal was 50 songs 90 days 2007. The Gravedigger was the main character. But I lost contact with it's creator so no more tales of that serial killer. I tried some on my own...it was not the same.
Thanks for the comment on Let's Go. You've got me listening to John Lee Hooker and liking it, especially his song with Santana, Chill Out.
It's not a FAWM without a pink piggy on a green toilet. Hey, I'm just speaking the truth. That's my way of saying I'm thrilled to see you again this year!
Hey! What do you want lyrics about this time? 😀
Hey tc! Yep, planning on coming back this year, looking forward to it and to hearing your music too!
Heh, addiction. I'll be watching you 😀
Hi TC! Welcome back! I wish you a wonderful FAWM-time!
Hi Tom, Happy Fawm!
Oh yeah. Still chugging along. Wouldn't miss it. Even planning for my first baby to be born in April I'm still gonna try to get at least to 14. Glad to see you're back too!
Hi TC. Is that piggy little bigger this year? Anyway, have a rocking Fawm 2017! 😀
Have yourself a splendid February
*bows* Takes one to know one, sir.
Have an awesome FAWM! Let's do this.
T.C. I'm looking forward to your new work. Cheers from Texas.
Let's rock this thing!

Hey man, you da man.
In my dreams, you take out the trash every night.
And for that, I love you.
No worries. 😀
I've waited so long that a couple more days won't be too much to bear. 😉
Still lovin' your piggy. 😉
