I've played jazz with Treme Brass Bands in New Orleans, rocked out at Dunajam with Cosmic Clown and jammed "Played That Funky Music" with Prince. My upbringing in France and Italy also adds flavours to my approach: Music is a journey of discovery and my mission is to unify more people through this magical force of nature. Im up for every challenge!
Elias Bendix' path has been full of detours and off-roads. Again and again his sparkling desire to explore the world through music has pushed him across borders – always with his guitar as a steady companion.
His latest destination is clean-cut funky pop embracing love in all its complexity.
He has previously cultivated the feeling of pure ecstasy under the moniker Cosmic Clown, just as he continues to do a range of jazz-gigs – backed by strings or horns. And that is essentially, the key to Elias Bendix: He aims to make room for it all – and to unite people through music and make everybody feel as part of something larger than themselves. These releases add new branches to Elias Bendix’ broad musical work
In addition to his travels, he draws inspiration from diverse musical sources. On his latest single you can follow a trail of witty funk a la David Byrne and Jamiroquai. But he also finds inspiration for the harmonies and atmospheres of names such as Israeli jazz bassist Avishai Cohen, Swedish jazz trio Esbjörn Svensson Trio and indie rock stars such as Damon Albarn and Grizzly Bear. That's why a performance with Elias Bendix contains everything from the acidic soft neo-soul to Latin rhythms.
In the last year Elias built a new studio in his cellar and he's able to record what you need!
