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 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.
