  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?

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
