WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Eli Teplin is a classically trained, pop artist, songwriter, pianist and guitarist, who began as a local performer in Nashville and made his way to Los Angeles after being discovered and signed by Quincy Jones.
With influences such as John Mayer, Brian Wilson, Bruce Hornsby and Billy Joel, Teplin chases his own style of pop music, while placing an emphasis on his classical foundations. As a pianist and guitarist, Teplin studied music at the New England Conservatory in Boston and later moved to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University. Deanna Walker, his professor at Vanderbilt, recognized his high level of musicality in songwriting. She believed in his extraordinary talents and encouraged him to pursue music, in hopes that his songs would be heard by a broader audience.
