Our interview with Las Vegas born singer Eloah Jones who has recently released her first original single, Soldier.
Hi Eloah please tell us about you?
I was born on October 30, 1999 in Las Vegas, Nevada. But moved to Texas shortly after I was born. I’ve loved singing and acting ever since I was little. I have one beautiful older sister, and a sweet younger brother. Right now, I live in a small town in south/central Texas called Johnson City. I love anything that involves music, God, and being around my friends & family.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Fun, humble, and ambitious
How did you get started?
I started singing at my church, singing at talent shows, or at restaurants. Eventually I went to a showcase in Florida where I had the chance to preform in front of several producers.
Best advice ever given?
The best advice I’ve been given is to be yourself no matter what anyone else thinks. That sounds like a cliche answer, but I cannot express enough how important that is. I used to be so scared to be myself, and do what I love because I feared what other people would say. When people are not confident in themselves they feel the need to bring down others, but don’t fall into that trap! Do what you love, and let people know you love it. There is nothing more beautiful to me than seeing someone happy, enjoying their passion. Forget the haters, surround yourself with people who will support who you really are. Never change for anyone. Stay unique, beautiful, talented person you are.
Do you have any music influence?
My main musical influence is probably Selena Gomez. I love her style, and I think she is a very down to earth person. She keeps it real, and is beautiful inside and out. She loves her fans a lot, and loves people. That’s the kind of artist I aspire to be.
Do you get nervous before a performance?
I get nervous a few minutes before, but once I go out and start singing, that nervousness goes away and I feel super comfortable.
Explain your sound in 3 words?
Strong, passionate, and captivating.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I hope to have a career in music! Also, living in my own apartment/home in either Nashville, or New York City!
What music we can find in your iPod?
You can find every type of genre in my music playlist! I love all kinds of music. Mainly because all music inspires the way I make my music. All music is beautiful to me.
Any loves, other then music?
Sports, and helping others. I’ve always been active in many sports ever since I was little. And I have always loved helping people in need, and volunteering places.
What are the five things you can’t live without?
God, my family, music (of course), my dogs, and my friends!
Idea of a perfect Sunday?
Idea of the perfect Sunday for me is spending time at church, and then spending time at home with my family while watching some football, or any type of sport!
What do you think of Social Media?
I think social media has its advantages and disadvantages. Social media can be a great way to meet friends, or keep in touch with people. It’s a fun place to share your music, art, or really any passion you have. But social media also causes a lot of issues. Bullying being the main issue in my opinion. It’s so easy to sit behind a phone or computer screen and judge another human being. In this generation, there is so much cyber bullying that goes on, and it’s very disheartening.
