It's been a little while since I've written this sort of thing and while I wasn't altogether sure where to begin, it became rather clear, rather quickly, that introductions are in order. After all, the likelihood of you knowing who I am is slim and here I am peddling my musical wares to you. And so, it feels like the right thing to do.
But...before we get to that, thank you for visiting my site. Thank you for reading this blog. Thank you for introducing yourself to my music.
Alright, enough of that shit. My name's Elias Black. Or at least, that's what I'm calling myself. I've been involved in writing, producing, and performing independent music for a little while now - mostly of the electronic persuasion. That was great. It is great. But, it's never been mine.
This. This is me. This is mine. For better or worse.
The 8 songs that I'm releasing (or have released, depending on when you read this) were written, performed, recorded, and mixed entirely by yours truly. The music itself both sounds and feels like the kind of music I've been wanting to write for as long as I can remember. The best part about that, for me, is that it wasn't planned. It wasn't prescribed. It just happened. And so, now I have something to share - these 8 short songs - and I'd like to share them with you.
Let's do this.
