"When I need a solid Word with powerful music, I listen to John G. Elliott," says Max Lucado concerning John, his music and ministry. "John's heart and purpose is to bring encouragement to the Body of Christ through music and teaching."
As a songwriter, artist and producer, John has won a Dove Award and was nominated for seven others. John has also appeared on the ABC television special honoring the life and ministry of Dr. Billy Graham, sung on a live recording with Max Lucado narrating and performed praise-centered concerts in most of the United States and more than twenty-five countries.
John's songs have been recorded and performed by Ricky Skaggs, Steve Green, Truth, Sandi Patti, First Call, Billy and Sarah Gaines, Pat Boone, Steve Camp, Bruce Carroll and many others. He co-wrote songs with Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, Paul Overstreet and Bill and Gloria Gaither.
John is heard on Christian radio throughout the nation, featuring his seven vocal and four solo piano/instrumental recordings. In 2004, Steinway Piano added John to their International Roster of endorsed artists. He resides in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife Carol and family.
