On this episode IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," Ben Kieffer chats with Iowa native and country artist,  Chad Elliott.

Listen and download the podcast to find out more about his recent album, So Sang the Crow.

Elliott has a strong connection to his Iowa roots and his music reflects this. Elliott's music brings images of the dirt roads and endless fields and pastures of the countryside. Listeners get a sense of nostalgia when a Chad Elliott song is playing, leaving them at peace and satisfied. 

Elliott bought his first guitar at an Omaha pawn shop, a dreadnought next to the used guns and knives. He took it home, slowly taught himself to finger pick and began transposing his poetry writing into original songs. Elliott’s latest album, “So Sang the Crow” was released in March of 2013. “So Sang the Crow” speaks to the souls of those “fighting the good fight” in a life of challenge.
