Buddy Elliot is an Americana-folk artist based in Calgary, Alberta. Raised in an orchard family outside of Kelowna, in Lake Country, BC, Elliot’s songs are equal parts heartbreak and hope.

Inspired by songwriters like Dolly Parton, Kacey Musgraves, and Lori McKenna, Elliot’s story songs are infused with social commentary. Her debut single “When a Man Cries,” (2020) is an observation on gender and masculinity.

“It’s a celebration of male vulnerability,” says Elliot. “I love getting a glimpse behind the walls people put up.”
