- Band Name: Little Brother Eli
- Genre: Blues-Rock
- About Us & History: Little Brother Eli is the musical lovechild of Alex Grew and Joshua Rigal. Over the last 8 months they have been writing and recording music which has culminated in this exciting project. Their influences have derived from blues artists as well as old skool hip hop, but the main focus for them is writing and producing great songs.
When performing live Little Brother Eli are accompanied by their band consisting of Benji Page, Adam Stowe and Linus Taylor. Allowing their songs to take on a totally new light, the duo describe this as a very exciting experience.
After their recent performance at iconic Jazz venue Ronnie Scotts in Soho, it's no surprise that Little Brother Eli have gained a lot of fans in the lead up to the release of their forthcoming debut EP.
Their debut EP is out for digital release and has been described as “The Real Deal when it comes to blues and soul music” - The Flux. Alex and Josh have extracted the rich melodies of blues and combined them with the excitement of old skool hip hop and an injection of good old rock n roll. Creating a sound that is not only relatable to this generation but is musically intriguing to all.
“wonderfully moody and bluesy…” - AMO
“Little Brother Eli goes deeper into a style that hasn’t been heard for some time, even though other bigger acts have alluded to it, this band actually makes you believe it and brings you right into the middle of it.” - Backseat Mafia
"…it is immediately clear that Little Brother Eli are seriously soulful about their blues. They don’t mess about when announcing themselves; from chord one they intend to grab you by the neck and pull you in with their fun and funky bluesy flair.” - 45 Magazine
“One of the things that I’m so impressed with Little Brother Eli is their SOUND…It’s an elusive thing, kind of like what the Beatles had when they all got together or Led Zeppelin as another example” – Bob Harris (guitarist for Vassar Clements & Johnny Cash)
