Elijah's Story

Elijah Wise of Cosby, Tennessee began singing in local churches and small festivals at the age of five. As he grew his voice followed as he developed a unique style in his twangy country vocal. In 2014 he started learning to play the box guitar because he didn't want to be a singer who didn't play an instrument. His dad was a big influence as a singer himself but never played an instrument. Elijah chose to take it a step further and go to East Tennessee State University to further his abilities as a singer and guitar player. Taking lessons from Bluegrass extraordinaire Wyatt Rice, who is a brother to bluegrass legend Tony Rice, he quickly started to make ground as a guitar player. Elijah now plays at all sorts of venues such as theaters, festivals, music halls, and honky-tonks all over the south. He displays an electric performance and stays true to his roots playing traditional country music. Elijah says, " Bro Country will die out and history will repeat its self and people like us will start to crave traditional story- telling country music. When that happens I want to be ready to step in and help in a much needed restoration." Elijah never disappoints and it would be a great investment of your time to catch him live, especially if you enjoy real heartfelt country music.
