Elliott Klein started playing guitar at 16 years old after listening to classic guitar gods like Steve Vai, Tommy Emmanuel, and Eric Johnson. He attended Berklee College of Music just two years later. It was here that Elliott formed his first cover band that played over 100 shows a year, while in school, up and down the east coast.
Upon graduating in 2010, with a double major in performance and business, Elliott moved to Brooklyn, NY, where he spent time working as a session guitarist and private guitar teacher. He had a few residencies as a trio group called The L train alongside Adam Neely and Shawn Crowder. He also played guitar in the Metropolitan Players and Hank Lane wedding cover bands, and with many independent artists. Elliott also played musical theater in NYMF and the New York International Fringe Festival, and at the cabaret venue 54 Below.
Elliott's self titled work is now on all streaming platforms, along with his previous project, Bright and Loud. Bright and Loud had tracks up on HypeMachine, was reviewed by EmergingIndieBands.com and they played SXSW quite early into the band's formation.
Elliott will graduate with his Master's of Studio Guitar degree at USC in December of 2020.
