music. It's an old school approach. Get several musicians in a room
together and capture a moment. All of that creates something rich and
diverse. Something human."
the previous name Pete RG, the group quietly attracted an impassioned fan base,
worldwide. Following a pair of EPs-Lightning Strikes , and Reaching
for the Moon -2016's Tender Souls album garnered critical
acclaim and looks from the likes of Impose,
and Elmore Magazine. The group toured extensively across North America
playing major markets like Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and New York.
They also crossed the Atlantic, hitting London, Paris and Berlin, among

all that time on the road really brought us together," he goes on. "Our whole
approach changed. We were no longer a singer-songwriter project. We were a

What is it that moves your soul? For Elwood it has always been the ever awe inspiring serenity and shear power of Mother Nature and you can feel it in his music. The trickle of a small stream, the roar of a thunder cloud, the pure silence of meadow lit by the coming of the sun....it's these things that sit at the very core of Elwood's music. Elwood has had the honor of sharing the stage with bands such as Simon Tucker, Tim Snider, Michael Kirkpatrick, Kory Quinn, Left Coast Country, many more.
