Eli Lieb is an American musician, singer-songwriter and producer.The covers he posted on his youtube channel allowed him to show his amazing talent to the world, and he is now releasing his debut album simply called ‘Eli Lieb’ that thousands of fans and supporters have been eagerly waiting for.
Eli grew up in Iowa, he was born in a family who practice Transcendental Meditation (A specific form of mantra meditation) and he has been meditating daily since childhood.
Eli Lieb started writing music when he was sixteen, and since he has never been able to read music he just picked up instruments and learned to play by himself. During an interview he declared that composing was some kind of “weird second nature” for him.When he was twenty Eli moved to NYC where he started to do music, playing at open mics allowed him to meet producers and people interested in his work. He then gained a manager and a team of people to help him with his career.Then Eli finally came back to Fairfield where he wrote and produced his first album.
One of his friend advised him to post covers of popular songs on youtube to be seen since posting his own music directly wouldn’t get him so much views and attention. That’s what he did, the number of views on his videos started to grow quickly and so did his fanbase.
The new youtube sensation finally posted some of his original songs and then started to promote his first “real” album, a record that he has written and produced all by himself.
The release date of the album which was first scheduled to be released on July 12th, got pushed back to October 25th.
It took him more than a year to finish this ten tracks album and its release has been highly anticipated by thousands of fans and supporters all around the world.
Eli explained in an interview the reasons of his comeback in Iowa and what’s his plan for the future :
“Now, why am I BACK in Iowa? Especially right now when music is really starting to pick up? I am an extremely spiritual person. For me, life isn’t about career goals, attaining things, luxury and riches. Yes, I have those desires but they aren’t on the top of my list. The top of
my list is my spirituality and happiness. I’m not going to do ANYTHING that compromises that. I have realized that after 10 years in NYC, as much as I love it there, it’s not the kind of life that I desire. It’s not the WAY of life I desire. I am an incredibly happy person already in my life and don’t feel like I need anything to complete the puzzle. Living here, making music every day, being around all of my family, being healthy
and focusing within, makes me happier than I can say. I’m sure that my career and other things will bring me to different places throughout my life but home base is Iowa.”
Eli is currently working hard on his second album and even if he didn’t give much informations about it, we know that he’s very excited about it.
