Pianist, composer,and arranger Christopher Elliott has worked with some of music’s biggest stars. From the late, great Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson and Adeleto Sugababes, Depeche Modeand U.N.K.L.E, Elliott’s sonic flourishes and embellishments have traversed genres, eras, and formats –also finding fame in film soundtracks, including Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! among others. However, after working behind the scenes for over two decades, the UK-based artistis stepping out of the shadows, emerging with hisdebut solo LP, After the Storm, a soothing, instrumental piano trip that pitches up at the Erased Tapes camp or the Minimalist school of Steve Reichand the like. Downing his regular compositional tools and dipping his toes in the waters of improvisationand chance, the album soundtracks a particular time and place in Elliott’s life. Cloaked in blankets of delay and reverb, the album was written largely on the piano and recorded at Elliott’s own studio –a converted chapel in rural Essex.
