Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. His primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient at piano, clarinet, bass, harmonica and drums. Smith had a distinctive vocal style characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery", and use of multi-tracking to create vocal harmonies. Although Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and died in Los Angeles, California, he resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity.

After playing in the rock band Heatmiser for several years, Smith began his solo career in 1994 with releases on the independent record labels Cavity Search and Kill Rock Stars. He eventually signed a major label contract with DreamWorks Records in 1997, for which he recorded two albums. Smith rose to mainstream prominence when his song "Miss Misery", written for the film Good Will Hunting, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category in 1997.

Smith battled with depression, alcoholism and drug addiction for years, and these topics would often appear in his lyrics. At age 34, he died from two stab wounds to the chest. The autopsy evidence was inconclusive as to whether the wounds were self-inflicted.

It's such a shame he died. He was like a better version of Conor Oberst.

Elliot Smith was one of the greatest singers of all time. Such wonderful music , such a beautiful voice. I cannot find any fault in any of his songs.

Yeah, epic bump, I know, but I fucking love Elliott Smith. His music is just so... legit. The emotions, everything, they just come across so well, in the most beautiful poetic language imaginable, yet with simple words. R.I.P

I recently found a really good cover of Baby Britain done by a band from Sydney, Circle. Check it out here: Baby Britain
