Cleo Rose Elliot early life, background and education
Cleo Rose Elliott was born on 17 September 1984 in Malibu, California, US. She is the daughter of Sam Elliot and Katharine Ross. In 2021, Cleo will turn 37 on her birthday. She grew up as an only child with her parents in California and picked up singing at an early age.
Although many have mistaken her for David James Elliott’s daughter and/or sister, this is not the case. They only share common last names. David James Elliott is a Canadian actor who was the star of the series JAG, playing lead character Harmon Rabb Jr. from 1995 to 2005. He is married to Nanci Chambers and has two children.
Cleo learned to play the guitar and flute as well and attended Colin McEwen High School. During her free time, she took classes at the Joanne Barron/D.W. Brown Acting Studio in Santa Monica as well. Additionally, she underwent opera vocal training under the versatile singer and songwriter, Charity Chapman.
However, despite training to become a singer, she did not immediately start her professional career as one. Instead, she went into modelling. Here are the details we found about her.
At 18, Cleo Rose Elliott started modelling for brands that were in the market looking out particularly for beautiful faces. She made her debut in 2003 at the Sexyhair show, a live hair-styling event. Fashion magazines also began to send her offers and she appeared on the cover of The Malibu Times in 2003 along with her parents.
She later focused on pursuing a career in music and joined the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). This is an American not-for-profit performance-rights organisation that protects its members’ musical copyrights by monitoring public performances of their music.
Charity Chapman, who gave her vocal training, introduced her to the late music producer Bobby Harby. Elliot then showed Harby her songs and he was impressed with them. He worked with her to release her first project “No More Lies” in 2008. She has mentioned Lady Gaga, Guns N’ Roses and Pink Floyd as her biggest musical influences.
While Cleo’s “No More Lies” was relatively successful, we could not find any more of her songs online. Sources claimed that the album was released only on CD, which was more popular at the time. In an interview, she told The Malibu Times that her parents supported her career and they were happy that she did not decide to go into acting.
