After forming a strong working and personal friendship with guitarist Al Anderson (the lead guitarist for the legendary Wailers, founded by Bob Marley in 1969), ELAN was offered a life-changing opportunity to tour with the Waliers as their lead singer.ELAN agreed to this, and chose to travel the road experience with his musical heroes. Night after night Elan took center stage and wowed audiences of thousands, who often mistook him for one of Bob Marley’s sons because their voices were so alike.
Then, after touring world-wide, ELAN set his sights on be the release of his first debut solo album ‘Together as One’ on Interscope Records. The album was executive produced by No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, and featured some of the most influential musicians and producers in Jamaican reggae culture including: Sly & Robbie, ‘Fattis’ Burrell, Steve ‘Lenky’ Marsden, Tony Kelly and DJ legend Cutty Ranks as well as pop superstar Gwen Stefani. He released his second solo album ‘We Are’, returning ELAN to the road and back in the public eye. This self-produced acoustic album was written and recorded demonstrating ELAN’s amazingly personal and artistic connection to his music.
ELAN has a new sound that comes straight from the heart, and a record packed with songs full of an important social, environmental, and love conscious message that everyone needs to hear.
