Pat Elliott

Pat Elliott is an accomplished vocalist and colorful frontman, comfortable on both the rock
and acoustic stage. Reared in a mix of gospel and bluegrass, Pat practiced a capella harmonies
with his brother as a child and credits this with helping him develop "an ear" for vocals. After flirting
with the growing genre of heavy metal in high school and early college, a chance meeting with
Ralf Southard set him on a course with rock and acoustic folk.

With Trinity 1296, Pat played both bass and guitar. He contributed five song writing credits to the
self-titled "Trinity 1296" release and co-wrote "Wayward Angel" with Ray Glahn and Jon Rounds, a song
performed by the band at the state finals of the "True Value Country Showdown" in Hershey PA in 1988.

After Trinity, Pat played bass and sang lead for "The Beaver Ave. Beggars," a State College happy hour
favorite specializing in Buddy Holly and other fifties and sixties mild rock. He also performed solo during
this period and ran open mike at "Champs Sports Bar and Grill" for two years. From 1995-2006, he sang
lead and played both bass and rhythm guitar for the classic rock band "Ivory Debris."

Pat is a proud stay-at-home father and part time database manager.
He and his wife Amy live in Stormstown with their daughters Kimberly and Erin.

Pat was born on November 16, which makes him a Scorpio.
