PROFILE
Elijah Wood is a gifted, hard-working, in-demand drummer who is fast becoming one of the next generation’s “best of the best.” At only 18 years old, Elijah is definitely an artist to keep an eye out for.

The rising star has been surrounded by music and the arts throughout his entire life. His grandfather was a painter, his grandmother a concert pianist, his mother a professional vocalist, and his father a violinist and founding member of Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Elijah has been the drummer in The Mark Wood Experience since 2006, is an integral part of Mark’s Electrify Your Strings! (EYS) music education program, and has performed in front of thousands of people in a wide variety of performance settings over the years. He also is a member of indie electro-rock pop band Exist Elsewhere whose hugely successful 2014 Reach Tour was put together to raise awareness for bullying. Their new EP, Beginnings is out now!

As a mentor to the young music makers involved in the EYS program, Elijah coaches the drummers and percussionists. As a peer, he influences them by the choices he’s made and the way he performs. And, as a role model, Elijah is an advocate for music education-all of which are responsibilities he gladly accepts.

With a strong musical foundation, a rapidly growing international fan base and a constant commitment to reaching the next level, Elijah is well on his way to becoming a successful and influential drummer, musician and artist.

ADVICE TO ASPIRING MUSICIANS
If music is what you’re passionate about, go for it. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re bad at it or you can’t do it. Because, if in your heart you know you can succeed, you will.
