Welcome!         Stay a while and find out more about me and my music.

Finally the good news…no, the great news! 


The new Richard Elloyan/Steve Wade CD, FORTY MILES OF FAMOUS, has arrived. 

It has been a long journey indeed.


This project, the first shared effort with my playing partner, Steve Wade, took at least 4000 miles of 

commuting between Reno and Las Vegas, 7 months from the first reference tracks to delivery of the 

finished product, countless e-mails, and a mountain of stress from wanting to get everything just  right. 


Thanks to our most excellent producer Mr. Steven Swinford, of Swinford Music, I believe we have done just that. 


FORTY MILES OF FAMOUS has 14 new tracks and is long enough to keep you entertained  for most of 75 miles…unless you are stuck in LA traffic where it will only be entertaining for 3 or 4 miles. Of course the final say 

belongs to you, the fans, the public, that come to the shows, that buy music, that appreciate thoughtful 

lyrics and quality musicianship. 


It is always a wonderful thing to watch a project go from conception to completion. 

It is equally as wonderful to let it go and see what it becomes. I hope you will enjoy FORTY MILES OF FAMOUS.


Steve and I thank for all the support and for coming to see the shows. We have some exciting shows in the 

very near future, including: Yerington Theatre of the Arts, Vinton Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival and the 

Genoa Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival. 

Dates and times as listed.  


We wish you all the best as the holiday season approaches and we look forward to seeing you down the road.

"A singer and songwriter of unique wit and imagination, Richard’s original music and poetry captures the spirit of the west and those that live its lifestyle. Raised in historic mining town of Virginia City, Nevada, Richard grew up fascinated by the stories and characters that helped shape the history on Nevada and California. Surrounded by the Sierras, it’s ranches and mountains are a constant source on inspiration for the images and philosophies of the cowboys and those that are cowboys at heart."                     from   DaytonNVHistory .
