An insurgent country singer/songwriter in the vein of Guy Clark or Townes Van Zandt, Ronny Elliott’s wandering muse swings from acerbic fare like “South by So What?” (from 1999’s Ronny Elliott), which slams the revered music industry fête, to politically charged tracks like “Letter From a Birmingham Jail” (from 2001’s Poisonville) to a rumination on Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen’s co-dependent self-destruction (“Room 100”).

Elliott lived with his mother and grandmother in Birmingham, Alabama until age six, when they moved to Tampa. By the early ‘70s Ronny had been a member of the groups Soul Trippers, Noah’s Ark, Your Local Bear, and Duckbutter, and even had a stint with big-time Southern rockers the Outlaws. Your Local Bear opened for Jimi Hendrix in 1967, while Duckbutter served as backing band for Chuck Berry and Gene Vincent on a retro tour. It wasn’t until 1995 that he decided to step out on his own, gathering a group of Tampa musicians and self-recording Ronny Elliott & the Nationals, a lo-fi effort that garnered critical acclaim. A Postcard from Jack followed in 1998 and Ronny Elliott in 1999, while 2001 saw the release of the aforementioned Poisonville. Elliott has continued his recording output throughout the 2000s, with such albums as Magneto (2002), Valentine Roadkill (2005), and Jalopypaint (2007), all on the Blue Heart label.
