Something new on the horizon tonight. The Little Unsaid is a new musical project, the brain-child of one John Elliot whose song-writing capabilities send him head-and-shoulders above a lot of current acts.
Relatively new, The Little Unsaid have been getting positive feedback at home and Elliot has been steadily gigging around, working on chops, building up a fanbase.
Tonight it’s a group of three songs Elliot (aka The Little Unsaid) performed with The Southfields Quartet at Highgate Cemetery this past May. Each track is an elegantly crafted work, balanced perfectly between singer and String Quartet.
Strangely, Elliot isn’t signed at the moment, and is in the process of finishing up his debut album. I suspect that will be a situation rectified pretty soon. Elliot’s is a voice that is haunting and bordering on the ethereal and listening to these three tracks has drawn me in and taken me for a sonic ride.
Since The Little Unsaid aren’t signed to a label in their native UK, getting them signed to a label here in the U.S. might be even more difficult. But word of mouth can work wonders, and there is a rumor we’ll be seeing The Little Unsaid on a concert tour here in the U.S. at some point in 2015. I suspect fortunes should change soon.
In the meantime, check out his site and check out these tracks. I believe we’re on to something here.
I predict . . . jus’ saying.
Special thanks and h/t to Pat Troise for making the discovery.
