Elbow

Elbow - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston
Rita Houston and Elbow's Guy Garvey

The British band Elbow has enjoyed tremendous success over the course its 17-year career. They've been awarded The Mercury Prize, A Brit Award, and the Ivor Novello award. Influential magazines like The NME, MOJO, Rolling Stone and Spin have all applauded their work, and the band seems to just get better and better with each album. Their sixth full-length album is The Take Off and Landing of Everything, and it is greatly inspired by lead singer Guy Garvey’s time spent in New York City. The album was released this past March and we loved it so much, we made it FUV's New Dig.

Since coming together in 1990 and bouncing through a few name changes, Elbow has earned critical and popular acclaim at home in Britain for their first five studio albums. Now in 2014, Guy Garvey (lead vocals, guitars), Richard Jupp (drums, percussion), Craig Potter (keyboards), Mark Potter (guitars and backing vocals) and Pete Turner (bass, backing vocals) have offered their fans their sixth full-length release.
