Italian producer, musician and singer ELYAZ ("ee-lie-as", real name Mauro Elias Morone) born in 1993, is from a musical family, the son of revered fingerstyle guitarist Franco Morone.
ELYAZ learned to sing and play the guitar and piano, which led to a discovery: a passion for producing and creating music.
ELYAZ studied Sound Engineering at the Italian National Academy of Cinema and holds the International Professional Certificate Program in Film & Television from UCLA, Los Angeles. Deciding to trust his own instincts and fully empower himself as an artist, he studied Sound Design and now produces his own tracks, allowing total creative control and artistic freedom.
He started as DJ/Producer releasing his first tracks in 2016. His first independent release Whispers, secured a Top 10 spot in Spinnin' Records Talent Pool and went on to release Break the Distance in 2018, opening a new chapter in his story and style of production.
Wildlands, available to stream now, is ELYAZ's latest work. Laying bare Earth's beauty and power, the soaring Nordic-style vocals and contrasting instrumentals on Wildlands are at one with vast landscapes and hidden secrets. The overall message is powerful and combative. We're all warriors protecting and respecting our wild planet.
