Davidâs original work and contributions as a pioneer in the unsigned artistâs world of self-produced CDâs put him in front of the folk community nationally and worldwide at a very early Internet age (1995). He achieved numerous and frequent #1 charting on various large musical web communities such as https://www.tradebit.com, Besonic, SoundClick, Mixposure, and https://www.tradebit.com (currently #1 artist for most plays) as well as others.
Not restricting his exposure to online outlets (breaking ground with CD Baby in 1998 and eventually Amazon, iTunes and 50+ others) David also attracted the discriminate audiophile community as an innovator in hi-def 5.1 surround sound recordings (SACDâs âThe Windowâ, 2003 and âCrossingâ, 2005). This met with industry recognition for excellence, including the Brutus award from Positive Feedback Online for both SACDâs.
Davidâs songwriting achieved early recognition from the likes of Billboard magazine (honorable mention folk award in 1998) and hundreds of reviews and comments online from fans, musicians and industry professionals. He has been compared to many great songwriters ranging from Jim Croce to Nick Drake to Tom Petty to Dan Hicks to Arlo Guthrie to Bruce Cockburn, Paul Simon, Dylan, Neil Young, among numerous others. His productions continue to be recognized for their outstanding articulation and impact, both lyrically, musically and sonically. He has indeed been referred to as both musicianâs musician and a songwriterâs songwriter.
It is somewhat challenging to try to characterize the scope and impact of Davidâs work either chronologically or in a complete fashion. Working as an independent artist for 15 years, he has been part of the dawn of many new discoveries in music and DIY approaches to sustaining art. Performing in the vicinity of 1000 shows, give or take, since 1994 and teaming up with dozens of different casts of characters from the deep roots of the Irish and Scottish to the quietude or rants of Americana and folk to the eclectic, bluegrass, rock and pop realms of those such as Jane Siberry (Issa), Sally Van Meter, Roger Powell, and even onstage with Thomas Dolby Robertson, David has spun many homegrown musical tales for the environment, local education and businesses, benefits galore, art shows, fairs and festivals, warehouses and lofts, beach parties, pubs and eateries, music halls and local cafes not to mention his own 7 released recordings and endless other collaborations. Perhaps it is summarized best as one fan online wrote: ââ¦music for the heart and soulâ.

â¢ Independent singer-songwriter musician with first self-produced CD âLost in the Greenâ released in 1995, with the initial wave of the Internet. This CD got immediate attention and play on hundreds of public and college folk programs across the US and overseas as far as Hong Kong. Original coffeehouse acoustic sounds for both lyrical/poetical impact and musical composition and quality were associated with early Dylan, John Prine, Paul Simon, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt and other folk icons.
â¢ Second CD release âTime Forgetsâ went online with the initial artist subscribers to CD Baby in 1998. âChristmas Blueâ from this disc became #1 on the original https://www.tradebit.com Folk Rock chart in 1998. CD Baby founder Derek compared this disc to John Prineâs music as something loveable. The âFreedom on the Freewayâ track received an Honorable Mention from Billboard magazine. Davidâs songwriting skills were also recognized by the Napa Valley Music Festival as a finalist.
â¢ Also released in 1998, âThe Blue Planetâ featured a title track used in the Musicianâs United to Sustain the Environment (M.U.S.E.) first compilation. This marked the beginning of many contributions to compilations and other non-profit and for profit projects including independent films such as Jason Wardâs âI Want To Blow Up Silicon Valleyâ. Both special and regular radio performances began during this time and continued on Bay Area stations including KSUP Santa Cruz, KPIG Watsonville, KZSU Stanford, KKUP Cupertino and KALW and KYOU in San Francisco.
â¢ 2001 included the CD release of the ambient folk recording âHalf An Hour Awayâ featuring an acoustic trio (guitar, mandolin, flute/tenor sax) known as David Elias & The Great Unknown. The title track of this song would also be included on the release of the Peninsula Scottish Fiddlersâ second CD. David toured Scotland with the 18-piece Fiddlers orchestra that year performing 14 shows as a supporting guitarist and featured songwriter.
â¢ Working early with Hi-Def recording in the beginning of Sonyâs development of the Super Audio CD (SACD) David ultimately released the worldâs first hybrid multichannel (5.1) SACD in 2003. âThe Windowâ was a final nominee at the Beverly Hills Surround Music Awards that year in the Emerging Artist category. That same year Pink Floydâs remixed and remastered âDark Side of the Moonâ was recognized as the best new surround hi-res recording. Over 4000 SACD titles would follow from various labels in recognition of this new high definition format.
âThe Windowâ has been recognized by audiophile experts as a reference quality recording for its superior sonic merits. It also has been awarded for its folk music value. As Stuart Robinson from High Fidelity Review commented: âEvery great recording requires great music, and thatâs what this disc is all about.â
Recorded live at Immersive Studios in Boulder and released without edits or overdubs, it features numerous luminary backing artists including Sally Van Meter, John Magnie (Subdudes), Matt Flinner, Eric Thorin (Open Road Bluegrass, Drew Emmitt) and Marc Dalio (Erin McKeown).
âThe Windowâ has been compared to folk and bluegrass iconsâ work such as Jorma Kaukonenâs âBlue Country Heartâ also a 5.1 SACD which was nominated for a Grammy in 2002. âThe Windowâ has received longstanding recognition in the audiophile community for its songs, performances and audio qualities.
â¢ Continuing to record in the Hi-Def domain using Direct Stream Digital (DSD), an acoustic trio consisting of Charlie Natzke (guitar/backing vocal), Chris Kee (upright bass) and David recorded a live studio set entitled âDavid Elias & XINGâ (pronounced âcrossingâ) for an iTunes promotion in 2005. This 50-minute, 11-track podcast was named by iTunes as âTracks to Watchâ and received tremendous support and plays online. It went on to be printed as a CD as a result of the online success.
â¢ In 2005 David was invited to join Jane Siberry (now Issa) onstage as a backing guitarist in the Newport Folk Festival. David would open shows for Jane over the next two years at numerous locations throughout California, including the Great American Music Hall, as well as performances in Texas. He also appeared live with Jane on radio in Austin, TX (KGSR with Jody Denberg) as well as KUSP in Santa Cruz, CA.
â¢ As he was being voted âBest Songwriterâ in 2005 by the International Online Musicians Awards (IOMA) David created the larger ensemble (up to 8-piece) of David Elias & XING (pronounced âcrossingâ) for his live performances. Using these local SF Bay Area musicians as well as most of the artists appearing on âThe Windowâ, a second hybrid 5.1 SACD of original music called âCrossingâ was produced and recorded at Slipperworld Studios in La Honda, CA.
Recorded to DSD by Charlie Natzke and mixed in Boulder by Gus Skinas (formerly of Sony SACD Project and founder https://www.tradebit.com) âCrossingâ received final nominations in three different categories in the 2003 Surround Music Awards: a) Listenerâs Choice; b) Best Made-For-Surround Title; c) Best Non-Orchestral Mix.
âCrossingâ received the same level of admiration for songwriting and Hi-Def excellence as âThe Windowâ, described as an âextraordinary recordingâ by Stereophile Magazine in 2006.
â¢ Shortly after relocating to Hawaii in 2008, David released a limited set of recordings featuring new lyrical songs written and performed on ukulele.
â¢ New releases planned for the near-term horizon (late 2008, early 2009) include:
- Live CD with the large band David Elias & The CasualTees, recorded to DSD by Gus Skinas in hi-def and mixed/mastered by Charlie Natzke at Slipperworld Studios in La Honda, California. This project was recorded at the San Gregorio General Store over successive nights and features new Elias material on 10-tracks. Musicians backing David as The CasualTees are: Charlie Natzke, John Havard, Scott Beynon, Ken Owen, Roger Powell, David Phillips, Gary McArthur, and Reid Dennis.
