"From GO! Magazine Cover Story"

"“Rocketships” is an album packed not only with hooky melodies, but an expansive sound that’s as close to arena-ready as you’ll find from a Central Oregon band. The guys draw influence from all over, from funk and soul singers like Stevie Wonder and Ryan Shaw, to bluesman Jonny Lang, to some of the biggest rock bands going: OneRepublic, Death Cab for Cutie and U2, to name a few." - Ben Salmon, The Bulletin

"Elliot Review"

Having only listened to their single titled “The Way to Feel Alive,” I cannot write a full preview of their up-coming album, ‘Rocketships, (available for purchase November 20th, 2008)’ however - If the rest of their tunes are anything like this track, (as well as the band member’s previous musical endeavors), I can guarantee it will be a great album. - http://whatthecrap.wordpress.com/2008/10/29/elliot/


2008 - Rocketships (The Debut Album, featuring 'The Way to Feel Alive' and 'Where You Are')



Elliot is a rock band from the United States. They have collectively released six albums and several singles in their eight-year existence, and are signed to Ten City Music. The band was created in Bend, Oregon.

Michael Summers, Casey Parnell, Corey Parnell and Nathan Walker were the founding members of what would later become Elliot. Performing in the Pacific Northwest under the name, 'Go For Broke', the band quickly grew in popularity, opening for such acts as Tait in packed arenas from 2003-2004. The band played their last show as Go For Broke in 2004 at the Les Schwab Ampitheater in Bend, OR, shortly after the release of their second full-length album, 'Death of a Rockstar'.

2003's 'Death of a Rockstar' was a more polished affair than its predecessor, featuring vocal harmonies and more piano than the self titled EP. Shortly after the album's completion, Nathan Walker left the band to pursue other musical interests.

Evan Earwicker and Timothy Heil joined the group in 2007 and in November, 2008, Elliot produced and released their debut album, 'Rocketships'. The album was recorded and engineered in Boise, Idaho under the direction of Telly award winning engineer Scott Pergande. The album was mastered in Nashville, Tennessee by five-time Grammy award winning engineer, Richard Dodd.

Elliot's latest offering, Rocketships, is an exploration of both pop and rock themes.

Their lyrics explore matters of faith and doubt, justice and injustice, the broken and the whole. The group's lead vocalist is Corey Parnell, who describes Elliot's music as both inspiring and challenging to listeners.

"I just want to write music that gives people hope, helps them see there's more to live for and more to do. I want them to get done listening and adopt an orphan, or help out at a local food bank, or just forgive somebody.

Since 2007 the members of Elliot have also played a large role in the formation of "I Heart Events". These events mobilize thousands of community members to partner with humanitarian organizations in cities throughout the Pacific Northwest, promoting social change.
