I love meeting other Elliott Smith fans, or people who genuinely just enjoy his music. It’s really cool because it seems as though everyone has their own specific thing they like about Elliott. Some like him for his quiet and to-himself-style, where as others like him for his deep and meaningful lyrics.
I often ask people who I meet, that I end up talking to about Elliott, what they like most about him. Recently I asked a team member at a local vehicle wrap shop (coloradosigns.com), what specifically he likes about Elliott, as our mutual interest in Elliott’s music came up during me getting services. He was such a knowledgable guy, and we talked about musicians in general for almost an hour, and said one thing that really stuck with me.
you know what I like so much about Elliott’s music, is the fact that he cares about what he writes about, and cares deeply. He is not unattached to his words like so many other musicians these days.
So I figured this quote that I am sharing today is very fitting considering my conversation this past weekend, and the great conversation I had. From my consensus this gentlemen and people in general fall in love with him because of his music, and the deep consideration he puts into every song.
