Elliot was born in Brighton, UK and continues to be Brighton based. As proof of this, he can be found busking regularly in the Pavilion Gardens, surrounded by confused tourists wondering why this eccentric and tall young musician is playing Bach.
Elliot discovered his innate musicality aged 4 when his Reception (Kindergarten/Nursery) teacher discovered that he had perfect pitch after noticing him singing perfectly in tune during a class singing session. After a brief foray into Woodwind, he quickly discovered that the recorder was not the instrument for him, and he moved onto the Violin.
Elliot is an avid reader, getting through up to three or four books a day at times. He has attended Christ's Hospital school in Horsham since the age of 11, boarding full time, where he met his partner Emma in 2011. He took 12 GCSE's, achieving 8 A*'s and 4 A's, and achieved at AS the grades ABC in Music, Chemistry and Philosophy respectively. He is now studying for his A2 Music and Philosophy, also studying Music on Saturdays at the Royal College of Music's Junior Department.
