Watch out for Elijah in the December 2015  issue of Drum! Magazine.



"Everything else about the show was set up to live up to the tour's name, Rock This Country. Twain's sturdy, seven-piece band was decked out in all black attire, with an emphasis on leather. And during the superstar's costume changes, the ensemble showed off their voluminous chops, rousing the crowd with bombastic guitar shredding instrumentals. The staging of the nearly two-hour set was pure arena rock overkill, with lots of pyrotechnics and a colorful laser light show."  — Rolling Stone
"The band was exceptionally tight and consisted of seven other band members on guitars, strings, keyboard and drums. Shania shocked her drummer Elijah Wood by inviting him to join her at the front of the stage as she introduced him to the crowd, sharing that he is only 19 years old, is new to the tour and is a local Long Island native from nearby Port Washington. The fans cheered wildly. Elijah was exceptionally sharp and on point like a seasoned pro proudly playing his heart out with a youthful energy and fierce, forceful drum banging, rocking out during every song with full on head banging. It was quite an impressive display proving that Elijah could easily compete with some of the most experienced and best drummers in rock and roll." — ZEALnyc
"... she let the strength of her material and the prowess of her well-drilled band provide much of the heavy lifting, while relying on her infectious verve and well-honed charm and personality to seal the deal. …. Her band played with well-oiled precision throughout, whether providing a Texas-swing lilt to “I’m No Quitter” or rocking out with gusto on “Honey, I’m Home,” which suggested what Def Leppard might have sounded like if it had relocated to Nashville." — San Diego Union Tribune
"Oh, and not surprisingly, she has a brilliant band ... They played their asses off while singing and striding back and forth across the stage." — Now Toronto
