Elk Walking began as an acoustic folk duo, Julian Daniell and Savanna Dickhut, who met while studying music at Columbia College Chicago. They recognized the complimentary and similar quality of each other’s songwriting and concluded it would be wrong to not continue to develop their sound as a duo. The two honed their skills and their collective energy for several months before their energetic and honest songwriting style emerged. It became apparent while recording their debut EP “The Road Ahead” , the two were in need of a backing band.
they enlisted the help of several like-minded musicians to create the full group Elk Walking.
