Maybe you’ve heard of Future Thieves, (they are kind of a big deal here in Nashville) or maybe you
haven’t. But it’s clear the Nashville based rockers (Lead singer Elliot Collett, lead guitarist Austin
McCool, bassist Nick Goss, and drummer Gianni Gibson)are on the journey of their lives.
From last year’s Bonnaroo to this year’s SXSW, it’s clear the alt rockers are going places.
I got to speak with Elliot Collett, lead singer of Future Thieves today while he was en route to SXSW.
A newbie to SXSW Elliot says “I am very excited, I’ve not even been to it before, so it’s really sweet.”
“Future Thieves” as a whole, has this rock n’ roll antique sort of glimmer as shown in NPR’s Tiny Desk
Concert series, (google “Just Sayin” NPR) but you can also hear they are full of youth and firsts whether
it is through their song “Soon” or the excitement of a couple of young guys going to SXSW for the very
Last year they played the mecca of music festivals: Bonnaroo. “That was sweet it was really surreal
being there. There were a few hundred people there where we were playing and more came. We got to
camp out and all of our friends came down. We just had a blast and saw so much music…the whole
thing was very very cool.”
And speaking of temperature, Future Thieves will be heating things up all over Texas this week. “All the
shows are sort of based by SXSW. We figured we’d go and stay for a week,” Elliot explains. Elliot and the
rest of the guys will also be playing at a charity event for MS (multiple sclerosis) that is hosted by one of
Nick’s friends, and they are even doing a show at Gianni’s uncle’s farm. (Go ahead, re-read that
With a heart for rock n’ roll, charity, and family the well millinered band is ready for Texas, and all the
stops along the way.
“After that, we’re out and about in North Carolina and going up the East Coast.”
For Elliot, he says (with a large amount of equal parts joy and coyness) the best part of touring is “Just, I
guess the loose freeness of it instead of being in your schedule. You’re out and about and kind of doing
your own thing. Waking up different places and being with a bunch of dudes in a van is pretty fun.
There’s not much brain power, it’s just kind of run and gun.”
When they get to run onstage, according to Elliot, there’s a favorite song in their line up: “Just Sayin.”
“It’s super fun live, great, rowdy kind of song.”
Future Thieves again teeters between rowdy and laid back. Elliot says that on the tour bus, “We cut up,
we read…Right now it’s pretty amped up because we’re super excited to play out of Nashville, but for
the most part it’s very laid back.”
When asked if Future Thieves has “Band Aids” Eliot says “No. There’s definitely been some
towns…where there’s been girls…” but he swears he doesn’t know what that even means.
There’s that shy coyness again.
With songs like “Rosie,” “Nightmares,” and “Horizon Line” Future Thieves are stealing our hearts,
whether we are clamoring for autographs after the show or not.
Of the band name Elliot says “…It kind of came out of nowhere. We thought it’d be kinda catchy. People
remember it. It shows up well on Google.”
Elliot’s sense of humor and style is evident with every sentence, and you could hear the guys, practicing
and chatting in the background, like musical pirates aboard a great ship: ready for adventure, the joy of
the journey in all of their jokes and hijinks.
Not only do the fellas have their latest record “Horizon Line” up and touring, the band should have a
new record come 2017.
But for now, it’s all about “Horizon Line.”
“We’re super proud of the one that we have and we hope people go online and check it out.”
