Elliot Jr.’s Road To Success
The passionate sparks of music ignited in Elliot Jr. at the ripe young age of nine, when he first started learning to play the drums. From there, the young musical aficionado gravitated toward singing, courtesy of his mother and aunt, who would play music by R&B and hip-hop legends like Usher, Ne-Yo, and Justin Timberlake.
Although Elliot Jr. always knew he had a special gift, watching his mother sing like an angel in the church choir truly gave his voice wings. Once he began singing in the choir, his confidence and determination to succeed grew, and he started frequenting High Road, a studio close to his home. At High Road, Elliot Jr., who was in his teens, mastered his craft and practiced how to mix music with the help of the engineers there.
Fueled by his passion and love for his biggest idols – Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Usher, Michael Jackson, and many more – Elliot Jr. mastered his own style. Drawing inspiration from more recent artists like Drake, 50 Cent, Travis Scott, Future, and Kanye West, he perfected his smooth, slick technique, which is the perfect balance of R&B and rhythmic trap influence. Elliot Jr. appreciates good music and draws inspiration from it, whether it is Adele’s soothing mezzo-soprano style or Travis Scott’s fusion of traditional hip-hop, lo-fi and ambient music.
