A singer, songwriter and classically trained multi-instrumentalist, Alexander Kotz, otherwise known as Elderbrook, developed his love for music at an early age. Building his musical foundations upon the influences of Jazz artists Sam Cooke and Billie Holiday, London-native Kotz would forge his unique vo- cals with an instrumental knowledge of guitar, bass, piano, and drums.
A student of the prestigious Bath Spa University, Kotz began experimenting with his sound, merging his acoustic and classical knowledge with film sam- ples, trip-hop elements and electronic-infused productions to hone a signature style all his own. Says Kotz of his creative process, “I started creating hip-hop beats and singing over them until it evolved into more of an electronic sound. I keep it minimal – when a song is broken down it leaves more room for intrica- cies which can be fun.”
