various bands including Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefers but his heart
was always in the studio.
then Elliot has produced and engineered an eclectic array of talented
artists such as Beck, Faith Hill, Steely Dan, Ricky Martin, Sting,
Bruce Hornsby, The Eagles, B.B. King, Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac,
Aerosmith and many others. He mixed the IMAX film All Access in
surround sound. The film footage includes Dave Matthews, Sheryl
Crowe, Macy Gray, Kid Rock, Moby, George Clinton, Mary J. Blige,
Al Green, and Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20).
talents have been recognized with 16 Grammy Award nominations, five
