Elephant Room, formed in early 2009, is an alternative hip hop group out of Louisville, Kentucky. Their sound generally contains elements of hip hop, rock, and pop, while also encompassing heavy metal. The band’s name – Elephant Room, derives from the metaphor “Elephant in the room” which is largely due to the lyrical content. The group is able to tap into political, pop culture, and social issues in a unique and original fashion.
ER’s uniqueness and authenticity has turned the heads of even the most skeptical critics. During live performances, each member brings their own technique and personality to the audience. Since their debut, ER has shared the stage with local and national artists such as Yelawolf, Rittz, Hed (P.E.) The Villebillies, The Wu-Tang Clan, Sublime with Rome, and Tech N9ne.
