Orange County, New York has produced one of the most influential rising stars in the music game. Elijah Bank$y delved into music at a very young age. His mom would frequently play old school hip-hop from icons such as Biggie and Jay-Z, and Elijah Bank$y would rap along with the lyrics. Ever since that moment, he never let his fervent passion for music leave his heart and soul.
It wasn’t before long that the artist was routinely going to studio sessions. He grew increasingly serious about making a career for himself, and pulled out all the stops to make this dream become a reality. “I started to collaborate with my friends, and dropped my first EP about three years ago. It was a big moment for me, and it was definitely something I felt like I needed to drop,” said Elijah Bank$y. His genuinely raw talent and incredible vocal range eventually caught the attention of fellow industry professionals and moguls, which landed him major recognition in i-D Mag as one of music’s “emerging bedroom pop artists”.
Most recently, he has been tirelessly putting in the hours toward his first official project: COLDEST DAY IN FEBRUARY SHINES THE AMETHYST ROCK. Between conceptualizing the visuals and putting finishing touches on the production, the artist is excited to finally share the EP with his fans worldwide. Adding to the overall hype surrounding the EP comes the same with his single he is just now releasing: “Coldest Out”. He has spent hours on end on this track alone, and he is anxiously excited to release the final product. “I’m getting people warmed up, especially for the single ‘Coldest Out’. This EP symbolizes how I am flourishing as an artist. You’ll hear wind and cold elements throughout the whole project, and I’m focusing on the soundscape to put you where you’re at. It’s perfect because it’s currently cold on east coast, but toward the end of the project everything gets warmer,” said Elijah Bank$y. His continuous success with music comes from being a genuine, real person. His fans like his music, of course, as they are looking forward to having “Coldest Out” in their hands. However, they value how much he appreciates each person individually, and doesn’t just brush them off.
After the release, the artist is mainly focused on getting everything off the ground. He promises even more visuals, which fans will be excited to see a whole new artistic side to Elijah Bank$y. A year from now, it will be no surprise to see Elijah on stages across the country, as he plans to continue touring. As he uniquely fuses old school hip-hop with new school flair, Elijah Bank$y gives the industry a breath of fresh air with his music.
