Who is That George Elliott Guy?
Fri., May. 27. 2016 1:33pm EDT

Our latest single features guest appearances by George Elliott, who plays double-tracked bass on "Micah" and seven-string guitar and bass on "Obed-Edom, Obadiah."

Don't worry; Keith Haynie is still alive and well and the official bass player of ApologetiX. He's an institution and a national treasure. But with his dislocated finger earlier this year, the preparations required for his daughter Sarah's wedding last weekend, and all the other APX projects he's playing on, we decided to give Keith some assistance by bringing George in for several specialty assignments.

For example, George played the upright bass on "These Books God Made You're Mockin'" and "Strange Cat, But." He also played fretless bass on "Reading Habakkuk," and bass on "Hosea."

George is one of the bass players on the worship team at J.'s church, New Community Church (NCC). Just as Keith recently filled in on bass for the NCC worship team, George has filled in on bass for the APX team. Like Keith, George has a regular gig as a bass player for a nationally touring group -- modern-country band North of Mason-Dixon (NOMaD).

What's more, George works as an instructor, along with frequent ApologetiX guitarist Wayne Bartley, at Waddell's Music Center in Wexford PA. George teaches bass guitar, upright bass, and guitar. He has maintained a teaching studio for over 20 years and has had many students who have went on to study music at the collegiate level and have their own careers in music.

Born and raised in Washington PA, George began playing the guitar at age 12, and bass shortly after. He attended Duquesne University, receiving his bachelor's and master's degrees in performance. In 2005, George was awarded honorary mention in the Bass Extremes International Solo Bass Competition at Coastal Carolina University for his arrangement of "Michelle" by the Beatles. Judges included Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Will Lee, John Patiticci, Anthony Jackson.
