Eli Locke is a California Native with a voice that conjures up the spirit of Merle and Hank, and a sound that’s pure Strait and Jackson. He’s got that young buck swagger of an Easton Corbin, Chris Young or Jon Pardi. Eli’s a no-nonsense, no-frills kind of American musician – “an appealing mixture of traditional and contemporary country,” says the LA Times, with “an amiable sense of irony and a simple, direct use of language.” Eli’s not a flavor of the month, or a flash in the pan kind of artist – he may be a fresh young face, but he feels like the artists you grew up loving . That’s alright with him. As far as Eli is concerned - if country music ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
