Building solidly upon the traditions that stretch from The Band to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, THE ELMS assure that the blues-heavy bombast (The Shake) exists properly against its deep, emotional turns (The Wildest Heart, The Little Ways) while embracing their pop sensibilities with simple yet huge hooks (County Fair). Their rousing first single Back To Indiana premiered May 24 nationally on the ABC, ESPN and VS. networks during their coverage of the Indianapolis 500 race.

Since forming in 2001, THE ELMS have played more than 700 shows sharing stages in the U.S. and Europe with artists like Band of Horses, Shooter Jennings, Neil Young, the Fratellis, Switchfoot, Goo Goo Dolls, Buddy Guy and fellow Seymour-native John Mellencamp at Farm Aid 08.
