Exclusive Interview with Eli Anderson

  1. Where are you from and do you feel your hometown has an influence on your career path?

I’m from the DMV. I feel the most influence my area has had on me is how to chase after your dream. There are a lot of talented artists in this area but despite the challenge of our geographical positioning we still make a way to keep going after our dreams relentlessly.

  1. Who are some of your musical influences and who would you like to work with in the future?

One of my major musical influences is Prince not just because of him as an artist, but the person he is. He stood out and challenged the status quo on what it means to be a man and a musician. As far as future collaborations, I would like to work with Frank Ocean because he’s a gifted songwriter and an amazing singer. 

  1. So Eli... as a 26 year old Pop artist, what are some of the challenges you feel you have to face in today's industry?

I think the most challenging part of it all is consistency. You have to keep working even when you don’t see the results that you want to see. 

  1. Do you feel that you have to be gifted in order to be successful in music?

Being gifted is part of it but it’s not the end all be all. Hard work is still the number one catalyst to success.

  1. What is your opinion about the state of the music industry; are you enjoying its open public benefits? 

The state of music is an interesting one. So many different artists and records are coming out that are influenced by so many different genres. It's very interesting to hear and see where it’s going in the coming future. In terms of the open public benefits, seeing fans interact with my posts, music, and videos through social media has been extremely encouraging on this journey. It's always amazing to see comments from people in different countries speaking different languages and leaving positive comments on various platforms.

  1. If you had to describe your music; how would you describe it?

Personally, I would describe my music as something that can be connected with. My music conveys an emotion that sparks a passion within those that listen, my music is not restricted by what this world tends to impose on us. My music has a voice of its own that you’ve never heard and is always going to stand out. 

  1. So tell us about your latest project?

My latest project “For All I Love” is about meeting the right person at the wrong time and when the right time comes how you would give them your all but it may be too late.

  1. Who are some of the notable people that helped you on your latest project?

The most notable person that helped me on my latest project is Brandon George Washington, AKA WriterBoy. He has been one of my closest and supportive friends since high school. We’ve been on this journey together since the start of both our careers and I could not be more appreciative for the influence that he has had over my life.

  1. Any last remarks?

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  Den Edie Flyah interveiw So could you tell us a little bit about your upbringing in Ohio?  I was sent to guitar leasons by my parents when I was 10 years old. My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
