2017 Lost Transmission Tour
East of Eli, City of Sound, Missyou
East of Eli is the stunning musical project from singer-songwriter Nathan West. Blending cinematic folk, pop melodies and modern electronic sound, East of Eli has been garnering both critical and popular acclaim since its formation in 2014. To date, East of Eli has released two singles off his upcoming album Lost Transmission.
On February 14, 2017, East of Eli dropped its first single entitled, "Nowhere”,͟ a love letter to West's wife, who makes her singing debut on the track, providing angelic harmonies throughout, The arrangement proves stunning, highlighting catchy melodies, soaring guitars and deep synths, a reminder of their devotion to one another despite the challenges that come with both having careers in entertainment. The song debuted on People.com and spread worldwide.
East of Eli’s second single "Childsplay" received commercial success, debuting in the iTunes top 25 dance chart, the song detailing feelings of falling in love for the first time. It also features Chyler Leigh on backing vocals. The electro pop anthem is an emotional coming of age story with West brilliantly detailing the confusion, excitement and anticipation of first love. West confides "the reason behind the song was to help my son navigate the next five years of his life as he winces ever closer to the 'coming of age' years in his life. I felt sharing my experience would give him much needed insight and perspective on what he may expect and let him know he has someone on his side that can relate to on his own journey".
East of Eli has received critical acclaim with American Songwriter noting West as an artist on the rise as well as being featured in such high-profile outlets as People Magazine, Hollywood Life, New York Post, Hallmark’s “Home and Family,” and more. East of Eli has also found success selling out top venues in the US including Los Angeles's Troubadour and New York's Knitting Factory as well headlining a sold out European tour in such cities as Paris, London, Berlin, Copenhagen and more including a special performance at Liverpool's famed Cavern Club where they received their ceremonial brick and future residency. Touring with his devoted wife and featured singer Chyler Leigh (Supergirl, Grey’s Anatomy), East of Eli has established a dedicated and fervent fan base worldwide.
JORDAN WRIGHT - VOCALS/PIANO
We see so much destruction every single day due to our ability to access information, and it has given many of us a negative view of our world. I believe that there is still a lot of beauty left in the human Spirit, and that if you want to do something good, you simply have to look around you. I'm not ignorant to the brokenness that exists in our society, but I won't ignore the goodness that still exists in everyday people. Our music aims to change our society's perception of itself, to see the love that still exists in everyone of us.
ANDREW LEIGH - GUITAR
As a musician I hope that the music I am apart of creating brings people more of the most beautiful parts of life. I love the fact that music can highlight the parts of our journey that are most precious, and at the same time be a help through some of the toughest experiences we encounter as humans. That is what music has always been to me and I love having the opportunity to be that for others.
LACEY AMMAR - VIOLIN
I'm drawn to all things magical and epic, so naturally, City of Sound was a good fit. I believe the best way to live is to live by intuition, Spirit, "The Force," call it what you will. Looking back, all the best, totally unexpected things that have happened in my life, happened because I followed that feeling. I believe in being true to yourself, however weird and quirky. I for one, am a total nerd, living half in an epic fantasy world and half here. I believe life is about mastery, or rather, the pursuit of it. I love growth, particularly when I can be a part of helping others to progress towards the highest, most alive versions of themselves. This is what I hope to inspire with City of Sound.
