Elior is a 19 year-old singer-songwriter and producer. And he has just released on October 11 “Try Again”, his first single since his debut EP Kid In A Bathroom which came out in June.
He has always been surrounded by music with a Jazz musician father and a mother who was born in Congo and spent her childhood in Guinea before becoming a dancer and band member. He started to sing in a choir at 7, and at 11 he started writing song as a way of expressing his own sensibility and insecurities.
When he was 16, Elior signed a publishing deal with Sony ATV, and he recently collaborated with the producers Pete Boxsta and Craigie Dodds (Amy Winehouse, James Arthur).
Deeply inspired by R&B and Pop music, he wants to show his evolution as a person and an artist. He’s is a self-made artist as he wrote and produced his entire album in his bedroom. He delivers intimates songs in a bid of talking to young men and women trying to figure out themselves like him. Also, a lot of fans thank him for being one of the first to produce ‘gay love songs’.
His latest track “Try Again” has been created in the intimacy of his own bedroom. And we can understand why. He says about it. “In Try (Again), I wanted to show that sometimes it’s hard to fight your addiction to a person. Even though you know that what you are experiencing is toxic, you’re still coming back. Even when you know that you are being played, you still want to be part of the game“.
With his groovy voice, his delivers an emotionally R&B track with the rhythm that we need. And a music video is to be released on his Youtube channel on October 14. This single is the first of his upcoming EP Midnight Memories.
