Elijah Bland background info:

Elijah Bland is not your average man, and certainly not your average artist. The multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer and actor embodies a presence and style matched by few in his generation. His musical sensibility reflects a range of inspiration, from the sensual musicality of Prince, to the funky twang of Bill Withers, to the spiritual soul of Al Green, to the bold essence of Isaac Hayes.

Featured on the popular “B-Side” segment of the nationally-syndicated Michael Baisden Show, Elijah has captured the attention of music lovers around the world, connecting with the hearts of women and the minds of men. His latest single, For The Record, is a sultry slow jam with a classic R&B twist on a funk-soul blueprint. The song offers smooth vocals and chords, backed by a tight rhythm section and topped with a wailing electric guitar, providing an encouraging preview of his highly-anticipated, forthcoming album.

Born and raised in Hackensack, New Jersey, Elijah is a self-taught musician who has been tuning his uncanny ear for music since he started playing piano at the tender age of five. As a standout student-athlete, he generally kept his artistic abilities under the radar and earned a full scholarship to play NCAA Division II college basketball. While excelling on the court and earning a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Music, Elijah also spent countless hours honing his craft as a songwriter and producer. Writing songs for local artists led him to discover a voice of his own, which would soon spark a promising career as an independent recording artist and full-time entertainer.
