'The Elodian' is the work of Australian drummer turned singer-songwriter, Jonny Westwood. After years of drumming for Melbourne bands, 'Third Day Falling' and 'Vaudeville Saints', a desire to write his own songs welled up within Jonny.
Fed by healthy overdoses of 'Bon Iver', 'City and Colour', 'Ours' and 'Sigur Ros', the Lo-Fi EP, 'Until Lambs Become Lions' was released in 2013.
The story of The Elodian continues with the 2015 release of 'In Time', an album which resembles the story-telling intimacy of a personal journal, or the nostalgia attached to an old box of photographs.
Welcome to the world, through the eyes of The Elodian.
