Elliott and the Audio Kings BIO:
2019 International Blues Challenge Semi-Finalists
2018 Maple Blues Award Nominees
"The trio, who hail from the Kitchener area of Ontario in Canada, are all about that perfect storm where blues, country, bluegrass, and rockabilly all collided, and rock n’ roll was born."
Shane Pinnegar - 100% Rock Magazine - July 2016
Elliott and the Audio Kings have returned with a new album entitled, Long Live the King. Led by Mike Elliott, formerly of Maple Blues award winning band Daddy Long Legs, with Jonny Sauder on Drums and Scott Fitzpatrick on doghouse bass, Elliott and the Audio Kings' new release features another collection of gutsy original tunes. Ruff and rowdy, this small but mighty three piece band hammers out songs that are tough as nails. With the blues as their starting point, Elliott and the Audio Kings swerve all over the roots road, veering, at times, dangerously close to rockabilly and good old fashioned rock and roll.
When recording their second CD, Elliott and the Audio Kings kept to their old school record making philosophy that made their first self titled release sound so vital and boisterous, - flip the switch, count it in and hold fast. The result is 12 tracks of grit, swagger and fun that are sure to shake the floorboards and blow the roof clean off.
