Elliot Arms a 12-string acoustic folk-pop group that writes about all the important things in life, taking ideas from our families, lives, and friendships. We explore the big questions in life and try to make sense of sadness, love, death, fate, and the other things that matter.
We grew up in the Driftless region of Wisconsin, and most of us are students at UW - La Crosse. We play and record music in our free time. We also enjoy hiking, biking, and running the beautiful landscape of the Coulee Region, talking at the many coffee shops in La Crosse, and taking rides in Danny's veggie-oil powered Mercedes.
A little about our history: the current lineup came together in the fall of 2010. Danny, Ben, and Joe (originally of Saints & Sailors) welcomed Ryan and Carolyn into the group and we quickly began writing more music and booking shows. Elliot Arms has now become a staple of the La Crosse area music scene.
