Eli Van Sickel

An acoustic singer-songwriter, Eli Van Sickel has been playing, writing, and interpreting music for the past 9 years and continues to work tirelessly at improving. He is known for his excellent stage presence, soothing voice, and soulful guitar playing. Why not give him a listen and see what happens?

Here's what some people have said about my music....

"Love the way Eli plays and weaves stories..."

"It's haunting and sexy."

"...so good, you make fetuses dance."

"It's beautifully scarred, persistently honest, and thoughtfully broken."

"Put this in your ears!"

"Eli Van Sickel’s MIDDLE WEST is definitely near the top of the heap, probably one of the best folk albums I’ve heard since Bob Dylan’s HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED. Both of us being Midwestern natives, his raw, lo-fi depiction of life here speaks volumes to me. Eli painted an honest portrait of life in Middle Nowhere, USA, the small triumphs, the dreams and the set-backs."

"Eli has delivered a masterpiece, a mix of traditional folk songs, his own originals, some unexpected experimental moments and a poet’s feel for the love and passion for the life under the moon. My advice is to pour yourself a good whiskey and raise a glass while listening to this record, celebrate the life and possibilities of life late at night with Eli’s newest album, NIGHTLIFE." [+]
