The Little Unsaid
The Little Unsaid is a musical vehicle for the diverse music of songwriter and band leader John Elliott. Born out of the English indie-roots scene of the 00’s, The Little Unsaid have built up a solid committed following, received glowing reviews and gained the attention of national media since signing with UK independent Reveal Records (home to award winning international artists such as Joan As Police Woman, Lau, Kris Drever and Eddi Reader).
In 2021 The Little Unsaid released two albums: the full band & experimental “Lick The Future’s Lips” followed by a contrasting, intimate solo winter music reflection “December Songs”.
Both albums were played on radio and reviewed with acclaim, and awarded Album of The Month by Folk Radio UK (the number one roots media platform in the UK). The band has frequently collaborated with renowned producer Graeme Stewart (who alongside engineering for Radiohead has produced Oscar-nominated film scores by Jonny Greenwood) and have received several awards for their work including: the Steve Reid InNOVAtion Award (PRS Foundation & Gilles Peterson, with mentoring from FourTet) and Help Musicians Emerging Excellence Award.
The band have played a variety of major Festivals (including Glastonbury) and their recent UK tour was described as “a soaring piece of sonic beauty…one hell of a show” (MusoMuso). During the Covid lockdowns, John created the Relay album project, collaborating on two covers albums with artists including Billy Bragg and Frank Turner to raise money for the Music Venue Trust.
