After being courted by titans in the major label industry, Eli Lieb decided to self-write, self-produce and self-release an album that resonates with honest sentiment. His fan base is as enthusiastic as they are interactive, with over 2 million views on youtube, 10,000 avid fans on Facebook.

Biography

In a pop musical climate dominated by performers that are auditioned, packaged and produced for the public’s easy consumption, Eli Lieb has self-produced his debut album, titled simply Eli Lieb. The collection of 10 original songs resonates with honest and touching sentiments within cinematic melodies, delivered in the spirit of uncompromising integrity. Appealing to fans of Robyn andJames Blake, Eli Lieb has created something emotional and empowering. Eli Lieb was released on October 25th, 2011, available on CD and digitally on iTunes and other digital aggregates.

Eli Lieb opens with the filmic instrumental introduction, “Red,” as the listener is immediately drawn into a lush melody evocative of the intense color. Brooding and mature, the strings and horns span a full spectrum of emotions. “Red” sets the stage for “All I Wanted,” kicking off the narrative arch of the album with the first of many memorable hooks. “Tidal Wave” is pop at its best with catchy refrains and infectious beats, while “We Own The Beat” transports us to the insides of dance clubs across the globe. “Ghost “ and “Red and Blue” recall the emotive intensity of the opening track, adding to the instrumentation with poignant storytelling. “Call It a Day” showcases Lieb’s soulful talent for keys and brings us full circle to the warmth of harmony and heartbreak on the final track, “Undone.”

Spring-boarding his musical career during his 10 years living in New York City with early musical roots in the East Village, Lieb took the NYC songwriting scene by storm. After his first performance at Sidewalk Café, he was immediately swooped into meetings with producers, label execs and collaborators of the highest caliber. After a year or so exploring the big-labels, Eli put on the brakes and retreated to his hometown of Fairfield, Iowa. It was in this rural refuge where Eli was able to write one of this year’s most exciting club-beat driven albums from his own musical instincts. In addition, Eli Lieb has close to 1,000,000 views on his youtube channel, and has a very active fan-base.

Perhaps one of the keys to understanding Lieb's intuitive sense of melody and insightful candid lyrics has to do with his lifelong practice ofTranscendental Meditation. Raised in an environment in which he practiced daily, he was taught as a child and has been meditating daily since. Eli describes it as a very different upbringing, which he is entirely grateful for: “meditation allows me to go through life with positivity and joy and makes me feel a deep connection to the underlying currents that we are all a part of.” TM is the same meditation that the Maharishi introduced to the Beatles and which the David Lynch Foundation supports with numerous educational outreaches to those groups suffering stress, from at-risk teens, soldiers suffering from PTSD and more.

While the production value on Eli Lieb is of the utmost quality, the honest lyrical content was written the same way any bedroom record is written: straight from the hip, from the depths of the heart; Eli’s tremendous talent, craft, and heart-felt production shines through on every track.
