About Elliot

A solo singer and guitarist with an eclectic setlist that always brings a little something for everyone!
Singing guitarist

Elliot is a Liverpudlian singer, guitarist, producer and songwriter, now living in Cardiff. After being in bands such as the The Lead and LANDS (formally known as Elliot Oakley and The Blacklights), Elliot has found his calling as a solo artist and songwriter, penning contemporary pop for other artists as well as writing his own brand of indie rock and performing cover sets all around South Wales and the South of England. A highly successful 2016 saw Elliot perform at multiple tribute nights for former Liverpool FC legends such as Chris Lawler, Tommy Smith, Tommy Lawrence and Ian St John, sharing the stage with the likes of Paul Kappa (Amazing Kappa Band), Brian Nash (Frankie Goes To Hollywood) and Peter Hooten (The Farm). 2017 was even better! Elliot re-located to Cardiff and his career has gone from strength to strength, penning contemporary pop for other artists, joining Cardiff folk-rock outfit “Glass Jackets”, forming acoustic cover duo "Gem & Ell" and even providing the music for the upcoming Amazon Prime video series, “Spirit Breaker”. Elliot has spent the last two years touring with his band Glass Jackets. He is available for booking right away!

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will always try my best to be flexible, so in the majority of cases, I'm sure we can work it out :)

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?


How much time do you need to set up?

I can set up within around 30 minutes. As soon as the PA is set up, I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my performance!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Depending on the length of performance, I'd be more than happy to offer to learn and include songs of your choice in my set!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I always bring all of my own equipment.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

I certainly can!
