Eli Wallace grew up in the hills of El Cerrito, California playing ice hockey and studying music. His piano studies began around age 8, and after being exposed to a broad range of musical styles by his family, he eventually gravitated towards playing Claude Debussy and studying jazz piano styles exemplified by Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, and Herbie Hancock
