Elliot Greer from American Idol Season 20

Elliot Greer is among the artists who reportedly auditioned for American Idol Season 20.

American Idol returns to ABC on Sunday, Feb. 27. Here’s more about Elliot.

* He’s a Scottish singer-songwriter currently based in New York.

* Born in Stirling, Scotland, he moved to the U.S. at age 18 after receiving a scholarship to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and wound up staying. He’s been in the states about 10 years now.

* On his website, he says he’s played Carnegie Hall and the Rockwood Music Hall in New York.

* But he adds that his favorite venue is the city streets. “Nothing makes me happier than busking in Central Park and bringing a moment of unexpected joy to those walking by,” he writes.

* He released a 12-song album called “Handcrafted” in 2020 and has since released two singles, “Sour Cream” and “Owed.” Judging from his Instagram, his follow=up album is coming soon. Check out the excellent “Owed” below.

* Elliot was playing the male lead in “Once,” a musical love story, at the Geva Theatre Center when the pandemic struck, shutting down production.

* With no income coming in, he recorded that debut album in the bathroom of his apartment, playing all the instruments himself.

* He’d also released an EP called “No Good at Growing Up” in 2019. At the time, he said he’d been auditioning for roles on Broadway, “only to barely miss the mark.”

* You might say Elliot got involved in music at a young age. Back in Scotland, when he was 10, he starred as one of five pre-teens who form a heavy metal bank called Hatred in the short film, “Heavy Metal Jr.”
