About Elijah Black
With more than 20 years experience, Elijah began playing in college because of a required class presentation he did on The Beatles. After getting hooked on writing and performing, he released his first CD with his band Peace Tree. The CD caught the attention of Michael Belkin of Belkin Productions in Cleveland, OH and led to his first gig opening up for Cry of Love. Some time later, Elijah and his band were invited to appear on a nationally syndicated talk show to represent themselves as one of the best unsigned bands in America.
An Akron, Ohio native, currently living in New York City, Elijah experienced opening for legendary rockers Motley Crue, Kings X, Styx, Neil Young, Cinderella, Ratt and Jackyl. After several national tours, Elijah has proven his staying power and is said to be one of the hardest working musicians on the touring circuit. Elijah's most recent tour was sponsored by the LOGO/MTV Channel in support of his latest release "BETTER MAN." The promotion was so successful that the channel, was flooded with emails requesting the world premiere of Elijah's new video "Smile for Me" on The NewNowNext and The Click List Video Show, which was voted TOP TEN of 2008.
