Biography

Elk Attack has emerged as one of the most exciting sounds in the small but vibrant music scene of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In its initial stages Elk Attack was three members: lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Bo Elledge, lead guitarist Dusty Nichols, and violinist Gabby Kouchacji. Originally a vocal harmony oriented and acoustic trio, they sought a rhythm section to expand their sound. Drummer John Wayne Harris and bassist Adam Woolley stepped in to provide that indie-rock edge. Influenced by artists such as My Morning Jacket, Wilco, George Harrison, and Ryan Adams, Elk Attack began to craft their material: a unique blend of folk instrumentation, three part vocal harmony, and experimental rock. Since their debut performance the group has packed the bars and clubs in its surrounding area and raised the eyebrows of local talent seekers. Before too long they were asked to support a number of national touring acts, including G Love and Special Sauce, Robert Randloph and the Family Band, The Young Dubliners and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. The band then took to the road--with gigs booked across the US, Elk Attack performed live for crowds in Colorado, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.

After self-producing a well received EP, Elk Attack sought the advantages of high-fidelity studio recording and production. Working with Brooklyn based producer Andrew Lappin and recorded at Hen House Studios in Idaho, Elk Attack released its debut LP Second Born in September of 2012. Whether at home in Jackson or on tour, Elk Attack is constantly seeking venues who will accommodate their original music and burgeoning fan base.
