Garth (Denver)

Not the DJ Garth, house DJ, from SF.

With a freshly tailored suit, a guitar and his voice alone Eli is…

One Popular Guy.

A performer / songwriter / producer / musician; Eli possesses the mettle of a rocker. He oozes charisma. Although life wasn't always sex, drugs, and Rock 'N' Roll for the Tennessee born, Bay Area bred talent, his path to the Rock 'N' Roll lifestyle was in one word, unconventional.

Drawing on his Tennessee roots Eli traded break beats for rock riffs and left behind his urban moniker, Smoov-E. Eli is a self-taught musician, fueled by his desire to create different sound scapes with live instruments. In the process of learning to play the guitar and keys, his affinity for instrumentation grew and that catalyzed his transition from Smoov-E caricatures and urban risqué raps to Eli. His forthcoming records are a manifestation of his transition to a mature, well-versed artist. Still, some habits are not easily broken, as Eli has kept his signature risqué tongue and cheek lyrics intact and has created his own brand of modern rock with pop sensibility.
His innate ability to draw people in is evident in his popularity on social media websites. Eli's YouTube videos have garnered 30,000 to over 100,000 views each, he has over 3,000,000 total plays on Myspace and is searched for over 60,000 times a month on Google–impressive for an indie artist.

For the past two years, Eli has performed before sold out shows rocking for crowds numbering in the thousands while touring with San Francisco legend Andre Nickatina. Andre recognized Eli's talent for engaging fans and decided to cultivate him under his I-Khan Distribution label.

A true artist in every sense of the word, Eli commands his guitar on-stage and has a track record that demonstrates his ability and success in the music industry. Eli will change the way Rock-N-Roll is listened to by bringing back that good old feeling and nostalgia, with a twist all his own.
