Remembering Elliott Smith

Published by at 12:22 pm under MP3's


Elliott Smith

August 6, 1969- October 21, 2003


On October 21, 2003, Elliott Smith took his own life and cut short the career of one of the most talented singer-songwriters of all time. Smith battled depression, drug addiction and alcoholism throughout his short but influential career, but still managed to create some of the most beautiful, emotionally touching music of the last few decades. Smith’s intricate acoustic compositions and blend of folk, pop and rock has made the music from all of his 6 albums timeless and his music has both inspired and influenced hundreds of musicians today. Five years ago today, the world lost an amazing musician too early. I hope you all will join me in remembering Elliott Smith today. Rest in peace Elliott.

    Amen. Love Elliott.

    I think Whatever is one of the best songs he wrote (along with every other song he wrote).

    words cant describe what his music does for people. every song is a gem and you cant say that about other artist. his throw away track are other peoples greatest hits.
