How well do you know San Jose? Join us as we explore the music and culture of some of our city’s highlights–and best-kept secrets. For this event the SJZ Boom Box stage rolls out to SoFA Street Fair with headliner Elujay.

Elujay is a multi-talented vocalist/producer/songwriter hailing from Oakland, CA. The 21-year-old creative began crafting his sound at the age of 14, after a friend of his uploaded a beat-making program to his laptop. Inspired by the music of D’Angelo, Musiq Soulchild and Kendrick Lamar, Elujay started producing instrumentals and writing songs representative of his love for both neo-soul and hip-hop. The Northern California artist has been on a mission to create “honest soulful music,” while expressing his feelings and experiences growing up in the ever-changing Bay Area environment.

Elujay’s style is refreshingly unique and accessible, his organic ability to effortlessly vacillate between singing and rapping, stands as the driving force of his musicality. Although, Jentrify, his first full length release, stood as his introduction to the world, the indie rapper is determined to take his sound to transcendent levels. Elujay has just released his long-awaited EP Adojio.
