Elliott Glick, a Bronx, New York, native, has been a musician / songwriter / performer for more than 40 years. He has played (in the 1970s) at: the Top of the Gate, the Other End, Gaslight, Mills Tavern, Nobody's (New York City); Harriman College Coffeehouse (Harriman, New York), and Lehman College Coffeehouse in the Bronx. Glick had the lead in independent productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, also in the 1970s, and wrote a play of his own, This Is Only a Test.
Inspired by the music-artists that have brought their awesome talents to his stage at the Starving Artist, Glick started writing songs again. And, after a 25-plus year absence from the stage, he took the stage for the first time on Saturday, October 28, 2006.
This page spotlights his live performances, as well as his CDs for purchase.

Elliott Glick on Neil Young Web Site
"Baby, This One's For You" and "Bitter Tears" - both by Elliott Glick - remain near top of Neil Young "Living With War" web site
Legendary songwriter / singer Neil Young established a "Living With War" web site - and added as a "new listing" the song, "Baby, This One's For You," by the Starving Artist himself, Elliott Glick, on Monday, July 30. On September 17, Young's site featured, also as a "new listing," Glick's tune "Bitter Tears."
"Baby, This One's for You" has been in and out of the top 100 since that original posting - going as high as #42 and never leaving the top 150.
"Bitter Tears" made its debut on September 17 as a "new listing" with no number, and has also never fallen out of the top 150 - even making it to the top 100.
Both songs remain near the top of the more than 2,300 song listing. Continue to visit the "Living With War" site to hear both songs. Check out where each song is at this week at the "Welcome..." page of this site. Then "Click on Glick" to move him straight to #1! It's important to connect through Neil Young's site so that that connection - and interest in Elliott's songs - are counted on the "Living With War" web site.
Elliott Glick's song - "Baby, This One's For You" - was accepted and posted on Neil Young's "Living With War" web site on July 30. Now some two months later, it remains near the top of the more than 2,200 song listing! Also added on September 17, 2007, was Glick's original song, "Bitter Tears," which now also resides in the top count.

The latest song submitted to Neil Young's Living With War Web Site - "Blow It All Away" - is available for your listening to the right.

September 6, 2007 & October 25, 2007 / 169 Bar, NYC
On Thursday, September 6, I made my debut outside the Starving Artist Cafe & Gallery on City Island, New York, on the historic Lower East Side in a hip "downtown" club, the 169 Bar. The place was packed with regular patrons and close to 40 of my family and my extended family of friends, music-artists and music patrons from the Starving Artist.
The evening went well, with my playing six new selections from my new CD, "I've Been Told" during the 45-minute set. The audience shouted for an encore - and the club owners gave me the thumbs-up to go ahead with that. I guess the turnout was a good one for that historic little New York City spot, since they immediately asked me to return on Thursday, October 25, at 9 p.m. (see notes on that gig below)!
The love in the room last night was palpable. It came from family - my wife Monica, son Joshua, daughter-in-law Jamie, and loving friend Marion. And I could feel the love from family not there - like my daughters Hannah, Arielle and Jen, grandson Jaiden, and brother-in-law "Uncle" Bill Yehle.
I felt honored to have musicians whom I respect and who play at my cafe / gallery show up to cheer me on. Present were: Jorge Caraballo from Rubber Soul, the Beatles tribute band, with wife Anna Foster - photographer extraordinaire; Nick Morales, late of Musica Flammarum and Twin Flame; Craig and Jeanne Fox from Project Mercury; singer-songwriters Leo and Amura, and the crooner of Great American songbook tunes Peter C. North. Visual artist Don Nester and jewelry artist, wife Millie - also best friends - were on hand, taking many pictures I cannot wait to see.
And there was my City Island "posse" who came to cheer me on: Donna and Jimmy McGowan, Susan Hayes, and Joe McGowan (fellow business owners there too, with their City Island Diner and Snug Bar & Grille), Mary Lou and Bob Lachman, Bob Adams, Marc Hohenstein, Doreen Wall, Joe Bruno, Luke Vivian, along with Alex, Steve, Jen and "crew," and the real City Island crew of Seth and Rajeev. My son's high school friend Chris - also a musician - came with friends of his own. And my wife's co-workers were there as well - Iliana Prevost and husband Paul, and Erica Johnson.
So many thanks are in order. To the 169 Bar, thanks for the invite and I look forward to coming back. To all who made the trip - thanks for making my night. To my brother-in-law "Uncle" Bill, thanks for keeping watch on the kids at home - and for being my right hand for all of this. To my friend Marion, you are just the best. And what can I sat to my wife Monica. You are my secret "weapon of mass promotion"! I love you!
The next "big night" on my horizon was the September 22 performance - and CD release party for "I've Been Told" - back at my club, the Starving Artist.
Stay tuned as the circle of my life continues!
NOTE: My return to the 169 Bar was filled with equal love and support. On a rainy night, in the middle of the World Series, friends and fans - some from the September gig and many more new - came out to listen for a few tunes.
Returning to hear me were friends Mary Lou and Bob Lachman, along with Joe Bruno, and musician Nick Morales and his girlfriend Fawn; Nick will be playing at the Starving Artist on November 23 as half of the "Freakin' Ricans" (the other half is Rubber Soul's Jorge Caraballo).
First time listeners at this venue were friends "Cowboy" Dave Tilson (also a fine keyboard player), Pat Lavin, Anthony C and Davey B from Love, Mara Jade, with their friend Andre, and Frank Koller. A special treat was the presence of my childhood friend Dennis Paukowits and wife Julie (they are the parents of Chrislyn, the superstar waitress who worked at Starving Artist until recently going off to college.
Of course, my wife Monica was there, along with son Joshua.
My thanks to all who came out to cheer me on - and to "Uncle" Bill Yehle for keeping on eye on Hannah and together cheering from home.
To one and all, stay tuned!

The legendary jazz guitarist Lou Volpe joined Glick for several songs, including Glick's originals, "I've been told" and "Love song for shadow."
Elena Wertenbaker of Port O' Monkeys also took the stage to sing the introduction to "Bitter Tears" with Glick.
"Dr. Alan" was on hand with his harps to accompany the Glick-meister!
"Uncle Bill" Yehle - Starving Artist brother-in-law - wowed the audience with his culinary skills once again, as he subbed for Glick as "head chef." Completing the kitchen / service crew were Valerie Della Cerra and Chrislyn Paukowits.
Hugs and kisses came from Starving Artist wife, Monica
Grandson Jaiden Glick was in charge of percussion - supervised by mom Jamie...
...and he also helped his dad Joshua with videography!
These smiling faces from "Aunt Ma" Marion Rosenfeld and daughter-in-law Jamie echo the appreciation for the night's music! Have a listen to two Glick originals performed that night to the left!
In the end there is the clean up - and the Starving Artist kid Hannah Glick has got that covered!
October 28, 2006 / Starving Artist Cafe
What a night! October 28, 2006, was indeed a night to remember as Elliott Glick, the Starving Artist, took the stage for the first time in 27 years! He wowed the crowd - and brought them to their feet for a standing ovation - with a night of his original songs. Many in the family of music-artists at the Starving Artists sent him well-wishes, some joined him in the audience - and Lou Volpe, the "jazz man" took the stage with him. Have a look - and a listen below!
Elliott and daughter, Hannah - his "sparks"! Play song in the middle, "Hannahraga," an instrumental Glick wrote and dedicated to his youngest child.
A hug from Hannah for the man of the night!
The "jazz man" himself - Lou Volpe - joined Elliott on stage for Glick's song, "Blue Tomorrow"; have a listen (and a look!) above.
"Uncle" Bill Yehle was the chef for the evening, and is shown here with Elliott and with Ethan Hartshorn, another of our music-artist family. Ethan performs at the cafe with Theresa Sareo and they'll both return in December (17th).
Relaxing at the show's end - before Glick started signing autographs on the special keepsake menu! As for "Uncle" Bill, he just kicked back for a well-deserved rest after feeding the room in a record - right after the first set!!!
