It's been quite a while, hasn't it?
Last time we spoke was when I dropped my 3rd album -- "Majestic Sun" on November 1st, 2019. Honestly, I thought I wasn't being completely transparent with all of you since that time.
Let's fix that for a minute.
I was honored to record an in-depth interview with one of my best friends, LA-Based Filmmaker Michael Tukes, in the flatbed deserts of El Mirage, CA. I was also interviewed by Adam Schwarz with his "Cool People Podcast" in San Bernardino, CA around the same time. We also dropped a music video to my lead single - "Chances". Everything's on Youtube... of course. Hah.
Afterwards, I flew out to the Philippines and met some amazing fans. Then I had the honor of performing songs from "Majestic Sun" with my live band - The Sol Tribe. Needless to say... Late 2019 (The whole year in general) was a busy yet blessed moment in my life.
Around January 2020, I dropped a remaster of my 2017 EP - "Where the Light Meets". Then we tried following up with an ambitious music video for my 2nd single "Unforgiven". March 2020 happens and everything stops to a fault. It was a tough time in my personal life, but I managed to gather my thoughts and lead my team towards completion of the video while also putting together an ambitious plan. My spirit was too tough to be broken, especially considering other variables surrounding my personal life like issues with people in my family.
So here's the plan. I'm going to release songs every week from June 12th 2020 to 2021 where everything would be written, performed, mixed, and mastered by yours truly. Dope songs. I've spent countless hours doing research and finally accomplished that in the span of 2 months. To be fair though, many of these songs had been worked on since 2018 so i've finally found the best opportunity to drop them. Yeah, i'm on my RUSS shit now. Big salute to him.
I've already written and recorded all 30 songs. Just mixed and mastered all of June's songs. The cover art is complete thanks to my brother Elijah Tukes. We're pretty much good to go.
As for the music video? I'm working with a talented kid out of The Philippines who's editing everything together. We're looking at a late June release date for it and i'm SO excited for all of you to see it.
All is well and i'm excited to help make your 2020 a little easier since we're all supposed to stay at home as much as possible. We will get through this together -- and I promise to stay on top with new content as well! Starting with a dope little series called #ElijvhAtHome where i'll go behind the scenes on certain songs or videos. The future is bright.
Stay tuned... i'll be on here often sharing all kinds of exclusive content, future releases, and personal thoughts. Love you all.
