About Elijah Blake
Very few artists are just as good at creating amazingly vivid and passionate scenes with their voices, as they are with their words – Elijah Blake, at 22 years old is one of the few. Elijah is a refreshing dose of vocal, hit songwriting, and personal conviction. Elijah has written for/with Rihanna, Britney Spears, Nas, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Trey Songz and has also appeared on collaborations with Rick Ross, The Game, Meek Mill, Common and Keyshia Cole. Mentored by and signed to famed producer No I.D’s ARTium music label through Def Jam and managed through Roc Nation, Blake is determined to separate himself from songwriter and singer and his 2012 debut EP Bijoux 22 did just that. The EP featured the hits “Birdz”, “Talk to Me” and “X.O.X” with Common. Elijah is currently working on the Bijoux 23 EP, which is due out at the end of this year.
