Released: April 2007, CD-Download

Fierce Truth & Fortune’ is the debut album from Chris Elliot, a young singer/songwriter from Liverpool who delivers a spell binding collection of raw, intelligent, honest & self penned songs .Combining Country, Blues, Folk and Rockabilly influences with his own literate and poetic lyrics, Chris has created a stunning debut album, with the aid of producer Paul Hemmings (formerly ofThe La’s and the Lightning Seeds.)
These are timeless and passionate songs about love, life, wry observations and wasted opportunities, showing him to be worldly wise beyond his young years. Just as adept at creating beautiful ballads as bittersweet Bluesy Rockers. This is a classic singer/songwriter that touches the soul (or heart) as well as the mind.

Chris Elliot has all in spades’ Tim Peacock Whisperin’and Hollerin’ April 2007
