Rick Elias was a Nashville-based singer and songwriter. From 1993 to 2002, Elias was a founding member of Rich Mullins' A Ragamuffin Band.

Rick spent his time writing and producing music in Nashville TN, and performed solo throughout the U.S. and internationally. His music was featured in the 1996 movie That Thing You Do! (which was written and directed by Tom Hanks), Dawsons Creek, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, as well as numerous other albums, independent films, and TV shows. Rick has also produced artists such as Rich Mullins, Amy Grant, Aaron Neville, Michael W. Smith, and many others. Rick's work has been nominated and awarded by the GMA, UCMVA, and the Nashville Music Awards, and his first solo record was voted as one of the top 100 greatest albums in Christian music by CCM Magazine.

Richard Robert "Rick" Elias, age 64, passed away peacefully in Nashville on April 2, 2019, after a brave battle with cancer.

It has been 10 years since Rick Elias recorded his last solo album. Why the long absence? Let Rick explain it: “I've always felt there are two kinds of writers--those who write until they have something to say and those who write when they have something to say. I've always wanted to be the latter.
