Elijah Rosario is a 26 year old singer-songwriter from Raleigh, North Carolina. With his chill, humble demeanor this up and coming superstar stuns his listeners with the quality and ingenuity that goes into his music. His relationship with music began back in his early childhood days as a young 5 year old playing with drum sets that was nearly bigger than him in his family’s local church. He never looked back from there honestly, his love for music followed him all the way through grade school where he then discovered another love of his, writing. In the 6th grade, he wrote a love letter for a prospective love interest. The impact this simple letter left on the recipient made Elijah realize how much of a profound effect he could have on the way others feel through his words.
In June of 2020, Elijah hit the ground running and took his newfound love to the studio so he could, for the first time, record vocal music. He was inspired by industry greats such as Marvin Gaye, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Miguel, Rihanna, Drake and The Weeknd to take his craft to the next level by incorporating dope lyrics with exceptional instrumentation. The result, as Elijah himself describes it, is the new concept of “R&B Mood Music”. This kind of music is eccentric, sensual, upbeat and most importantly personal; something that is deep, conveys real feelings/experiences. As for structure, Rosario prefers his lyrics complimented with sick bass bumping through the speakers underlined with stringed instruments or piano key notes. For his writing, however, he chooses a much more versatile approach keeping his mind open to new possibilities in terms of creative self expression.
The brilliance that is Elijah Rosario can be witnessed in his sensual, sexy single “Aura” featuring “The Artist Boy” available now on all major music platforms. The structure is, as described earlier, a soothing mix of bass and piano notes. The lyrics tell a story of how much adoration he has for a special love interest. The delivery is clear and distinct and the overall message ‘being conveyed is how much this special woman means to him. This track is definitely something to add to your favorite R&B playlist. While you’re at it, you might as well check out one of his other great projects; an EP entitled “Unorthodox Being” released in September of 2019. It is an incredible assortment of tracks sure to bless the mind, heart and soul of any listener.
Ultimately, the main goal for his music is for it to resonate with any audience on an emotional level. “At the end of the day when it’s all said and done..I want the world to feel what I’m saying whether it’s through a song I’ve recorded or a record I’ve written for another artist. You will feel me and love the vibe” says Elijah himself. He hopes that his music can be used to enlighten, uplift, and inspire the mind of every listener.
