Elohim on Tour: An Artist Interview
Elohim is currently on her Spring US Tour. On the 24th of March, she stops by my hometown of Brooklyn, New York. She’ll be performing at Rough Trade, the independent purveyors of great music since 1976. She’s a one woman performance machine, playing all her songs live. There are still tickets available, so click HERE to get yours before they sell out!
Other stops on the tour include Coachella, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and Buku Music + Art Project. 2017 was big for the up-and-coming electro-pop musician. Opening for Alison Wonderland on tour, collabs with Louis The Child and Whethan, Billboard Dance charting, releases on Ultra, and major festival play were just some of her accomplishments last year. Her entire brand and performance is forward thinking in the electronic space, making her a worthwhile follow on social media.
The classically-trained pianist is set to rock 2018. I had the chance to interview her below about her upcoming performance in New York City. You know the drill. Press play on the Soundcloud embed and read the interview below for the FULL ELOHIM experience.
What is you favorite part about NYC?
In an interesting way, there is something really calming about New York City . The city is so busy it almost makes your mind feel a bit more quiet and at ease. You can’t hear yourself thinking as loudly I guess. It is hard to explain in words, it is more of a sensation. I feel alive in New York, I feel free, I feel more adventurous there.
Will you be playing any unreleased tracks at Rough Trade 🙂 ?
Absolutely! One of my favorite things about performing is being able to play unreleased songs and seeing the reaction of the crowd. I am always amazed by the excitement and enthusiasm. It builds a cool anticipation for when the song is released. Sometimes new songs will even be posted online from a ripped audio of a video taken at the show. I love the passion behind the beautiful humans I’ve been so blessed and surrounded by through music. They push me to give my all.
What MIDI controllers and/or instruments that you use to perform?
Tell us more about your new album?
It is an adventure and experience. It is a trip through my mind and the sounds I like to make. I feel as if the first full length album an artist or band makes is always a crazy special experience. After you finish your first record the excitement is so prevalent and the juices are still over flowing you just want to keep creating and tapping into the creativity and pushing the boundaries. I want to put out ten albums. haha
What other plans do you have ahead?
My only plans are to inspire and spread love to a world in need. Anyone out there that is struggling or feeling alone… you aren’t alone, I promise. There are so many of us out here also struggling and working to live the greatest healthiest life we can. Along with that, I’ll be touring and making music… that is all I really know how to do.
Are you working on anything different with your live show? Tell me about your vision.
Always and forever doing whatever I can to expand and develop the live show further. I think live shows are taken for granted a bit at times by artists, and I really want to give people a world they can walk into and walk out of feeling inspired. As a fan of music I especially love going to otherworldly shows that you know an insane amount of work and love went into. My live show is one of the most important aspects of Elohim to me. This time around I will have new visuals, a new station, and new music. The show feels bigger than it has ever been while also being more intimate than it ever has. I hope to bring people into my world where we may enter as strangers but all leave as friends.
