What makes the Eli Slocumb Band unique is the emphasis on innovation. Through his background of multiple different instruments and style’s, Eli combines instrumental complexity with modern songwriting and production to create a new sound.
The role of the electric guitar is an important factor as it has fallen off as a prominent melodic and harmonic instrument in modern music. The combination of the stylistic tone of 80’s Rock guitar players with modern production, this music intends to reach a new level of sonic intensity.
Through the opportunities of touring and playing with several Bluegrass and Jam Bands when growing up in Colorado, this taught Eli about the music industry and the art of performing/touring. Staring at the Berklee College of Music in 2018, Eli has learned multiple skills about the music industry such as insider knowledge of the business and a catalogue of multiple styles that have influenced the sound of his music.
"There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind."
