Elephant Heart is the creation of married couple, Jason and Victoria Evigan. The two express their music and its message through various collaborations. “Elephant Heart evolved after goofing off in our home studio on our 5-year wedding anniversary. We never would have guessed after being together almost 12-years with different careers, that we would end up making music together. In hindsight, it made sense because music has always been the passionate heartbeat of our relationship. It was amazing to find Victoria had a dormant voice waiting to be unleashed. Making this music as husband and wife has been healing for us as a couple and for us as individuals. There’s nothing more special than to make music with the love of your life.” – said Jason
The two turn a mixture of art forms and life experiences into unique musical creations as they combine the studio prowess of Jason, an award-winning singer/songwriter, and producer who worked with Madonna, RÜFÜS DU SOL, ZHU and Ellie Goulding, and vocalist, songwriter, and lyricist Victoria, who stuns with her intimate emotions and wild heart. Jason explains, “We’ve realized, like our Gemini personalities, there are a few different sides to our sound. One-minute Victoria is rapping and the next minute, she’s belting soulful melodies. I feel like we’re making warrior music—music for the spirit. The album is a journey. It’s called Seasons because it represents our relationship and the seasons we have been through.
When asked about the song’s meaning, Jason explains, “Africa is a warrior cry from the spirit, reminding ourselves of our true nature in times we feel like we’ve lost direction of our path and purpose. In life, it is an unavoidable fact that we will all face demons, trauma, and dark forces that will try and dim our light. The song is a mantra, reminding us we have the ability to be victorious over these demons, and generational curses — we just need to be in touch with the light we carry and call on it.”
