Elliot, a 5-piece modern worship band
Elliot is a modern-rock worship band from Pacific Northwest with a sound reminiscent of Switchfoot, One Republic, The Script, and Hillsong United. Their sound is energetic, modern and worshipful.
Brothers Corey Parnell (lead vocals) and Casey Parnell (electric guitar) front the band, with synth and keyboard sounds from Evan Earwicker. The sound is held together by drummer Michael Summers and Grammy Award-winning bassist Lonnie Chapin.
In 2008, the members of Elliot founded a movement known as “The Heart Campaign” in their hometown of Bend, Oregon that mobilized thousands of Christians across the west coast to serve their communities and put their faith into action. Their vision and music, accompanied by the powerful evangelism of their friend Nick Vujicic (lifewithoutlimbs.org), saw thousands come to Christ during the 6 year campaign. Elliot’s music was featured in TOM’S Shoes “One Day Without Shoes” campaign, their song Beauty of the Cross was featured at the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta, GA and many of their songs are sung in churches around the world.
They have traveled the globe, leading worship, teaching, and sharing the gospel. Their latest record, RESOLUTE, aims to inspire listeners everywhere to connect with their Creator, and to live for a cause greater than themselves.
