It’s been a few years since Richard Elloyan has played at Mavericks. The singer/songwriter from Carson City, Nevada is a songwriters songwriter. Some of the more well known entertainer out on the Cowboy Sawdust Trail have recorded his songs. Richard’s songwriting collaborator Dave Stamey, our multiple, award winning one man House Band says of Richard: He “is a songwriter with so much talent, it should be illegal!” That’s good enough for us to invite him back.
Richard was raised in Virginia City. After a stint in the US Navy, he attended the University of Nevada -Reno, where he studied Range Management. That resulted in his working for the US Bureau of Land Management and the US Forestry Service. Today, he travels the highways of Nevada as an Environmental Health Specialist. Richard Wade, an accomplished guitarist, raises and trains Arabian horses in the Washoe Valley.
Richard has eight albums to his credit. The most recent Forty Miles of Famous Title Track, was selected in 2014, by the Reno Gazette Journal, as the Best New Local Music Original Song from 43 entries considered….quite an honor!
What are others saying:
“A singer and songwriter of unique wit and imagination. Richard’s original music and poetry capture the spirit of the West and those that live it’s lifestyle.” DAYTON (NV) HISTORY
Regarding his 4th album Back in Heaven, “Elloyan points out that country and western are two different genres of music. Western music reflects cowboys and a passion for the outdoors. Elloyan’s music encompasses a full landscape of emotions.” Susan Winters, NEWSREVIEW.COM
“His lyrical agility, melodic ability, and harmonic sensibility in choosing the proper four chords make Forty Miles of Famous a fun ride powered just by two voices, two strumming guitars, a thumping bass, a touch of strings – and a spoonful of self-deprecating humor.” Mike Sion, RENO GAZETTE JOURNAL
