I am songwriter/audio engineer with sync placements on CBS, FX, and commercials. For Rock and Roll, you have come to the right place!

My name is Elijah Newman. I am a songwriter/artist with commercial success, signed to Wiretap Records. I have had placements on Networks like CBS and FX. I studied songwriting at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. I was assistant engineer to Music Supervisor Bob Thiele Jr. on the last season of "Sons of Anarchy." I also do sound design and audio engineering for artists and businesses alike. I am also head of Support Operations/Brand Management at NoiseTrade, a tribe building website. I work directly with and am mentored by artist/entrepreneur and CEO Derek Webb.
I can offer songwriting advice, co-writing, and editing. I specialize in Rock, Folk, and Punk. However, I write in all genres. I also offer full recording, mixing, and mastering.

    Elijah worked with me on polishing a lyrical rough draft. I probably gave him more work that he bargained for but he stepped up and gave me some brilliant wordplay to work with. We had several back-and-forths and he was responsive and clearly considered my feedback into his revisions. The song is much better thanks to his ideas. Thank you, Elijah.

    Elijah felt my song. He did a very good translation. It was a cool new song. New songs will do only with Elijah.
