ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Elijah Emanuel stars both in front and behind the spotlight,
playing the lead role plus writing, producing and directing this
compelling, epically-detailed saga of artistic sacrifice and redemption.
In a deeply introspective performance, Elijah is the voice crying
in the wilderness of the twenty-first century, embodying with
every note the frustration, hope and longing that comes with
being an original bilingual artist with vision. Misunderstood by
his peers, betrayed by band-members and left penniless with
only his mother's love to guide him, Elijah must persist against
all odds, against all gods, against legions of demons, against
a public facade distorted by rumors, against a genre of music
in dire need of a protein boost and finally against the devil
himself to make his art a reality.

Elijah Emanuel, conocido tambien como Elias Emanuel, se destaca,
delante y detras del medio musical, desempenando el papel principal,
escribiendo, produciendo y dirigiendo esta estimulante y detallada
aventura, de sacrificio artistico y de redencion. En una actuacion
profundamente introspectiva, Elias es la voz que grita en el desierto
de este siglo veintiuno, formulando en cada nota musical, la frustracion,
la esperanza y el anhelo que acompana a un artista original-bilingue
que tiene vision. Incomprendido por sus semejantes, traicionado por
miembros de su banda y sin un centavo a su nombre, con solo el
amor de su madre para guiarlo, Elias tiene que persistir contra todas
sus desventajas, contra todos los dioses, contra las legiones de
demonios, contra la apariencia publica distorsionada por rumores, contra
un genero de musica que lamentablemente esta en urgente necesidad
de proteinas alimenticias y finalmente en contra del mismo diablo
para poder hacer realidad su arte.
