Elie Massias

Born in Gibraltar, a small peninsula on the southernmost tip of Spain, musician, singer and songwriter Elie Massias, moved to New York in 1994 and since has garnered critical acclaim and has played on and produced dozens of recordings.

Known for his guitar work and improvisation skills, Elie illuminates audiences with the beauty and intricacies of Jazz, Flamenco, Middle Eastern, Sephardic and rock music he grew up with. During his live performances, Elie sings and plays acoustic and electric guitar, soprano saxophone and Wavedrum while using a sampler to create loops in real-time.

Drawing from his experiences living in Israel, Europe and the US, Elie effortlessly unifies these vast musical genres and was named one of the top 10 artists of the U.S. North East by Billboard Magazine at the Independent Music World Series 2007.
