Truth Love and Light! You can find me always playing some of the best original Reggae, RnB,
Jazz, Neo-Soul and Alternative Rock. I also throw in a few classic covers to keep your audience
feeling amazing! Elyjah Tribe music is all about creating more love, abundance, and prosperity
by evolving into your best version of you. I been performing in Gospel mega churches since I
was 7 years old where I learned the power of singing from your soul. I am from San Jose,
California and was raised there for the first 20 years of my life. I earned my Masters Degree as
a double major in Communication and Music from Saint Mary College of California. After my
experiences of growing in what we callThe Bay Area, California it taught me that people from
all different backgrounds can come together to heal the world.
I was mentored from the age of 10 to 17 by Louie Bellson the world-renowned drummer who recorded albums with James
Brown as well as Duke Ellington. Hence my music love for really great music followed
throughout my childhood. My late grandmother Barbara Big Mama Jackson taught me how to
play organ and piano by ear and the rest was history in the making. I played piano for 1 hour a
day for 3 years and from that point on I knew no musical challenge could stop me from
spreading my music to the world. Over the years been through struggles like homelessness,
divorce, abuse, trauma, depression and anxiety just like every other being on this planet. I use
my music to heal and I create to motivate and inspire the world. In today world there are very
few leaders left who practice simply being a good person and creating music that our:
daughters, aunties, mothers, grandmothers, and children worldwide can be proud of.
Life is about dancing, creating art, mastering the mind, body and spirit. Elyjah Tribe mission
and music is to help others get through the trials of life using it as a tool. Currently I travel and
tour with my original music and I teach over 40 students a weeks online and in person on 9
different instruments throughout the country.
Overall the echoing theme in all of the music I make is all about self healing and sharing your
pain so others can heal. Through learning the Divine truth that you never alone in
experiencing life. I always believe that we have to be the change that we want to see instead of
waiting on someone to create the life he always dreamed of. In my mind we all have 2
1. To become an Angel on earth spreading love or
2. We choose to walk a path of emptiness without true joy in our hearts and souls. Elyjah Tribe chooses to fly!
