Touted as Singapore’s premier electro-pop artiste and Asia’s breakout electro-pop act of 2012, musician-producer Eli T. has drawn attention to how diverse musical talents can spring from Singapore. The 30-year-old Singaporean’s electro-pop album, “Revolt”, debuted in March 2011, and he has entered into distribution deals across America, Canada, Korea, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Over the past year, Eli has been nominated for four awards for his work in ‘Revolt’ — two awards for Best Singer/Songwriter and Best Solo Artist for the Artists In Music Awards 2012 held at Hollywood, one award for Best Electronic Artiste at the Ontario New Music Awards 2012 and one award for Best Electronic Artist at the Toronto Independent Music Awards 2012. Eli was also the only Singaporean artiste to perform for Men’s Fashion Week 2012 at Marina Bay Sands and the only Singaporean act that performed at New Zealand’s City Showcase, an event that features some of the best up and coming talent in the world. In an interview with Yahoo! Singapore, the cutting-edge singer admitted that he had it a little easier than most amateur artistes in trying to break into the music scene.
Previously a producer for E.M.I Southeast Asia, a British multinational music company that has since sold its recorded music operations to Universal Music Group, Eli says that he was really lucky his music got picked up by the recording group. From there, he got put into a label and started working with people in the industry. It was also at E.M.I. that Eli produced tracks and worked for Disney, Taiwanese Mandopop singer-songwriter Wilber Pan and American-born singer-songwriter Wang Lee Hom.
