Zack Elliott is a contemporary folk singer-songwriter based in Bolton, ON. Though still in the early stages of his career, his melody and lyric writing has noticeably developed and grown with time. His writing often reflects but is not limited to what is relevant to his life at the time. He has also been known to draw on inner-curiosity and imaginative storytelling, all of which are more evident in his released and unreleased work alike. He independently released his debut EP “Caught Half Alive” in March 2021 and has been performing throughout Ontario and Quebec for two years.
At the onset of the COVID-19 lockdowns, Zack began to write songs after having played instruments for the majority of his life prior. Six of those songs he recorded, produced, and independently released in his debut EP "Caught Half Alive" in March 2021. Two years later, the project has been streamed over 11,500 times with 'Honeysuckle' and 'Oh, it Grows' being highlight tracks. He is currently in the process of recording songs for a new project.
Zack consistently performs live as a solo act, playing over 40 shows in 2023 ranging from Toronto, to Montréal and New Jersey. He has also broken into the festival and conference circuit performing at Gussapolooza 2022 & 2023, showcasing at the 2022 & 2023 Folk Music Ontario Conference, 2022 & 2023 NERFA Conference. He is also set to play his first shows west of Ontario in an Alberta/B.C. tour with Amanda Penner and Sammy Volvkow, including an appearance at the Dunn Folkin’ Around Music and Arts Festival in Clearwater, B.C. He is also constantly working on his entrepreneurial skills working in conjunction with the Canadian Musicians Co-Op and being selected for the 2023 RBC Artscape Launchpad Music Entrepreneurship program. Zack continues to grow his social media presence and engage with his 13,000+ social media followers.
