After teasing us with the lead single “Callin” back in February, we should have seen this coming -- the incredibly instrumental, musically inclined and multi layered EP that is Elevated, that is.
Released on Aug, 10thElton has managed to put together one of the most cohesive and complete bodies of work out of Chicago in 2018.
The Fox Valley native has been steady creating a buzz throughout the city, throwing shows and collaborating with the Burns Twins on the critically acclaimed project Sun Shower. Now, he’s back with his own story to tell with his newest EP.
Elevated takes you on a journey of different emotions which, uniquely enough, are all specific to the listener -- which is what makes Elton and this project so special.
Joint’s like “Demonz” tackle the hurdles we all have in life and tracks “Rewind” is about living your life for you and no one else, just to name a couple.
All six tracks are riddled with gems and quotes and provide enough substance for multiple listens. When it comes to bodies of work you’re going to have a hard time finding one better than Elton’s.
Listen and enjoy.
