The Little Unsaid began life in a tiny West Yorkshire town when a teenaged John Elliott rescued an old PC and microphone from the trash and began making records with them. Since then, with long-time collaborators Tim Heymerdinger (drums), Alison D’Souza (strings and FX) and Mariya Brachkova (Moog bass and backing vocals), the band has toured the UK and Europe extensively, formed a strong connection with a broad and dedicated following, and self-released several acclaimed albums before signing with Reveal Records in 2018.

John and the band spent large chunks of 2017 and 2018 on the road, leaving audiences emotionally rapt with a live show that’s been described as ‘a thumping depth of passion, recalling the intensity and melancholic overtones of Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen’. Touring continues in earnest through the summer and autumn of 2019 in support of their new album 'Atomise.'



'Entrancing… songwriting of a real rich quality, all held together by an intensity of approach, by a focus on the emotional weight music can carry’ – Clash

‘Extraordinary music. This is an amazing act’ - Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2


'A brave and often brilliant collection' - R2 Magazine (on Selected Works)


‘The first thing you notice about these songs is their emotional honesty. Elliott writes about mental illness from the point of view of someone who has lived through it and come out the other side, someone who is acutely aware of how close he still is to his demons. But his songs are full of hope, full of the potential for a better future despite the continued proximity of depression.’
