With each new release, the multi-Platinum, four-time JUNO-nominated pop singer-songwriter and producer elijah woods delivers endless reminders that there are layers to his artistry that even he has yet to discover. His instantly catchy melodies, tongue-in-cheek lyricism, and signature production (from the comforts of his home studio) are all reasons why he’s spent more than 35 weeks on Billboard’s Canadian Emerging Artist chart, remaining inside the Top 5 for 20 weeks, including five consecutive weeks in the Top 3. His debut solo single “lights” hit No. 8 on the Top 40 and AC radio in Canada and was recently certified Canadian Gold. His 2021 debut solo EP look what i made highlights woods’ incandescent pop vibe and includes “lights” and previously released singles “someone new” and “first night,” featuring JUNO Award winning pop songstress JESSIA. Online, 1.1 million TikTok followers enthusiastically encourage woods’ clever ability to showcase a different perspective on a previously recorded hit; his early 2022 release “fingers crossed” served as a response track to Lauren Spencer-Smith’s Platinum-certified viral smash of the same name, with woods’ version surpassing 7.7 million streams and rising. His latest single, the uniquely robust neon summer bop “ilu,” continues to drive his momentum, climbing the radio charts and garnering international attention. Most recently, woods confirmed his ability to reach and connect with audiences, captivating crowds of more than 20,000 fans at his first-ever hometown show at Ottawa Bluesfest.
