Elliott Klein started playing guitar at 16 years old after listening to classic guitar gods like Steve Vai, Tommy Emmanuel, and Eric Johnson. He was so dedicated to his instrument that he was able to attend 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 (of YouTube fame) and Shawn Crowder. He also played guitar in the Metropolitan Players and Hank Lane wedding cover bands. Elliott also played musical theater in NYMF and the New York International Fringe Festival, and at the cabaret venue 54 Below.

 

Elliott has also written his own original music and formed the band, Bright & Loud. His last release in 2015 was an EP "In Hiding," that showcased his guitar playing, producing, and songwriting abilities. Bright and Loud had tracks up on HypeMachine, was reviewed by EmergingIndieBands.com and they played SXSW quite early into the band's formation. He is preparing a jazzier album under his own name to be released in late 2019.

 

Elliott moved to Los Angeles, CA in 2015. He backs artists at popular shows such as It's A School Night, HoneyPot and We Found New Music. He also had a residency in Pasadena where he also hosted a popular jam night and has a couple residencies with Kristen Lynn and the FoxGloves at The Edmon (Hollywood) and Idle Hour (NoHo). 

He teaches privately through Skype as well as at Music & Arts, and began his Master's of Studio Guitar degree at USC with the goal of teaching at the collegiate level.
