We had the good fortune of connecting with Elijah Rosario and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Elijah, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I chose an artistic path, because it’s never eliminated my “inner child”. I get to express myself freely, try new things and be myself. Being a creative helps me articulate and communicate my thoughts and emotions most efficient, especially in times when I just don’t know how to say what I need to say.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Everything related to my artistry has kept me busy! Like, I’m doing everything! I’m learning that it takes more than just making a good song and then uploading for people to hopefully find it. No, you have to invest your time and money to get your music out there to gain more fans, you have to plan ahead and I’m getting really good at doing this majorly by myself. However, it can get exhausting and frustrating, but I am seeing the fruits of my labor. I’ve been fortunate enough to be performing again and I’m excited for upcoming shows that I’ll be apart of this year. I’m also preparing the release of my debut album, I’m running into more artists from around the world that want to work with me. I’m growing as an artist and as a businessman.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Absolutely! First and foremost I want to shout-out my mother, as she is no longer existent on this earth but she’s always with my in spirit. Secondly I want to thank my wife for always being in my corner and telling me to push forward. Last, but not least I want to thank one of my closest friends Eaan Whiteside, he is one of the variables in my journey of becoming an artist. Much love and appreciation to you all.
