Critical Praise for Conjure:

[Of ‘Stay’] “With vocal melodies reminiscent of John Legend's, it’s an explosive piano ballad that will be sure to tug at your heartstrings.” –Baeble

“‘10,000’ stays true to this mantra, soulfully jamming out with
prominent piano in a stadium rock-type ballad.” –Indie Shuffle

“…soulful vocals…” –mxdwn.com

“I cannot emphasize enough how incredible I think they are. Few bands have resonated with me over the last two years the way Elliot Root has...Elliot Root is a band that has it. A nebulous thing, it is really hard to describe what it is. But I know it when I hear it. And they have it.” ––Blue Ridge Outdoors

[Of ‘Stay’] “…soulful stadium-ready anthem.” –The Deli

“Conjure may very well give Elliot Root a bona fide breakthrough, but the band's intent focus on creating expressive music that reflects its members with uncompromising honesty is undoubtedly what will steer them there.” –Albumism

“….the album is wonderful...an impressive debut and this reviewer for one can’t wait for everyone to get a listen.” –Music Existence

“In life, perseverance is a solo venture, and Scott Krueger has the voice to prove it. His vocals on songs like ‘10,000’ and ‘Lost Man Running’ are like a one-man army fighting and feeling every emotional dagger that a relationship can throw your way.’ –Diandra Reviews It All

“‘Stay’ is an absolute masterpiece, gorgeously balancing intense power and emotion.”

Up-and-coming Nashville band Elliot Root’s full-length debut Conjure is out now on E.R. Recordings/Thirty Tigers. This fall, the band is set to embark on a U.S tour with Rainbow Kitten Surprise kicking off on October 1 in Memphis. See below for a full list of confirmed dates.

Co-produced by the band’s own Scott Krueger and Melissa Mattey alongside Tony High at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios and Width Music, Conjure follows the group’s two EPs Thoughts From Yesterday and II. Elliot Root features frontman Krueger (vocals, guitars), Mattey (keyboards, drum programming), Sean Truskowski (drums) and Todd Bond (guitars).

Writing and recording the album over the course of a year, the band worked out their material at Mattey and High’s own Width Music Studio before moving to Blackbird Studios to lay down the tracks. “We would usually start the days off with an idea or two and spend the rest of the day experimenting and letting each idea unfold,” explains frontman Krueger. “I don’t think we had any sort of preconceived notion as to what we wanted things to sound like, our main goal was to really just get out of our own way and do whatever felt natural at the moment. Eventually we could see a common thread start to run through everything we were writing.”

Krueger goes on to note, “Our writers, producers, engineers and mixing engineer are members of the band or live sound team, so the collaboration on the record was really closely knit with almost no outside influence. With the exception of mastering the entire record was created internally.”

Releasing their first two EPs in 2015, Elliot Root has quickly gained attention in their hometown of Nashville with the track “Punks and Poets” topping Spotify’s “Sounds of Nashville” Top 100 chart and reaching Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 Chart. No Country For New Nashville called the band “loud [and] full of energy…wonderfully electrifying.” The band has performed alongside X Ambassadors, Lord Huron, the Zac Brown Band, Michael Franti & Spearhead and more.
