Eli’s music is a celebration of diversity and resilience, blending acoustic guitar melodies with elements of pop, lo-fi rock, electronic beats, and Caribbean rhythms. Eli gives a firsthand look into his new song “They Say”, he states “You know all those common expressions and words of advice you got when you were young? Well I put them all into a song, and shared my real thoughts on each one. From money, to love, to family, to how we treat others, to what kind of emotions we can share: it’s all in my new song ‘They Say’. At this point in my life, I’ve understood that it’s not necessarily what ‘They Say’ that’s important – but it’s how I’m able to interpret those words of advice based on my own experience. The first lyrics of the song start with: ‘They say get rich, so I can buy all that I want – but I’ve got all the smiles that I need.’ It’s a different understanding for me now of what happiness really involves, and how just a smile can be more valuable than anything in the world sometimes.” Through his eclectic sound, Eli invites listeners on a journey, where borders blur, and emotions resonate universally. Join Eli Lev on his musical odyssey as he continues to break barriers and inspire audiences with his timeless melodies and heartfelt lyrics. “They Say” is just the beginning of what promises to be another remarkable chapter in Eli’s career.
