Eli Lieb
Eli Lieb
In a pop musical climate dominated by performers that are auditioned, packaged and produced for the public’s easy consumption, Eli Lieb has self-produced his debut album, titled simply Eli Lieb. The collection of 10 original songs resonates with honest and touching sentiments within cinematic melodies, delivered in the spirit of uncompromising integrity. Appealing to fans of Robyn and James Blake, Eli Lieb has created something emotional and empowering. Eli Lieb will be released on October 25th, 2011, available on CD and digitally on iTunes and other digital aggregates.

Spring-boarding his musical career during his 10 years living in New York City with early musical roots in the East Village, Lieb took the NYC songwriting scene by storm. After his first performance at Sidewalk Café, he was immediately swooped into meetings with producers, label execs and collaborators of the highest caliber. After a year or so exploring the big-labels, Eli put on the brakes and retreated to his hometown of Fairfield, Iowa. It was in this rural refuge where Eli was able to write one of this year’s most exciting club-beat driven albums from his own musical instincts.
We Were Lovers
We Were Lovers
We Were Lovers has gusto! Dancey beats, swirling atmospheric guitars, and dynamic synths convey a wide array of moods and themes, as strong female vocals wrap stories of love and loss around catchy melodies. With comparisons such as “... Stevie Nicks-meets-The Cure pop." by The Austinist.com - The Polite Invasion: Canada Bands at SXSW, Ash Lamothe and Elsa Gebremichael have mastered a pop balance infusing electro, dreamy, rock and disco elements. Known for their heart-pumping, high energy live show, this duos undeniable connection radiates from the stage pulling you to nowhere but the dance floor.

No stranger to the road, WWL has spent many months on tour across Canada and much of the U.S. with travels to NYC and most recently to Las Vegas, San Diego and LA where they showcased at the Viper Room. They’ve also shared the stage with The Arkells, Land Of Talk, and the New York Dolls, showcased at the WCMAs, CMW, NXNE and SXSW and recorded their upcoming self titled EP with Engineer / Producer Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, etc), mastered by Joe Laporta of The Lodge (The Raveonettes, The Walkmen, Vampire Weekend etc).
