APRIL 19: JONATHON ELEY TO RELEASE THIRD RAP ALBUM ‘AMERICA 25’
LOS ANGELES – Some may know him as Ryan Lewis’ 2014 pick for “next big producer” at the Buffalo Beat Battle featured by MTV, The Grammy Awards, Rolling Stone and The XXL, but his fans know Jonathon Eley as a musical genius and social advocate. A year after the release of Tomorrow They’ll Care, Jonathon Eley reveals his third studio album America 25. Never afraid to push the envelope, Eley has always used his discography to call out injustice.
America 25 takes listeners on a journey through Jonathon’s last year living in L.A. and the mental hurdles he overcame. From battling his hometown demons to boldy confronting obstacles in his personal relationships, Eley uses his own experience to influence this provocative social commentary. He tackles the struggles and emotional pain faced by many Americans today — struggles that many consider taboo.
To Eley and his fans, this is what America needs — an honest analysis of our current social situation delivered with stellar production, provocative lyrics and influences across multiple genres. Pulling inspiration from some of the world’s strongest artists in R&B, hip-hop and rap, Eley is sure to be a common name following the release of America 25. Using his diverse skillset in writing, production and vocals, Eley has created a collection of songs that could change the music industry and the way we talk about social injustice.
Now is the time to address modern racism and inequality. Now more than ever, America is ready for an honest awakening. Some may find this album forward and abrasive. It is. And Jonathon would not have it any other way.
Jonathon Eley is an influential rapper, songwriter and producer best known for his provocative social commentary. Among several EPs and production credits, his discography includes After the Internet, Tommorow They’ll Care and his upcoming release America 25. Following his firstplace victory of the Buffalo Beat Battle with Ryan Lewis, Eley’s career took a turn for the best receiving media coverage by MTV, The Grammy Awards, Rolling Stone and The XXL. He continued to hone his production skills producing the full-length album Things I Never Said for America’s Got Talent semifinalist Jaycob Curlee.
