Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Elliott Simmons grew up listening to his dad play his guitar and sequence music, and he had a interest in playing the drums at a early age, but he later lost interest in the drums, but he took an interest in singing, mostly at church. One day he came to his dad and asked could he help him with a song he had wrote, the song was called (Good Love) a very tasteful ballad, Track number 8 on his Album. And the rest is history. He made a choice to right positive love songs, he and his dad got along well in the studio, one supporting the other with idea’s , old school and new school (enjoy)
