This is an exciting time for me. I am writing songs for my new album Joshua Eli…In His Element. I am the composer/lyricist for all the songs except for the 3 covers. The 3 covers chosen to be included with my songs were selected for their content and to demonstrate how I fit in with the music scene and its composers/performers. The 3 covers were written by Erroll Garner, Carole King and Billy Joel. I sing and play all the songs on piano but will add another instrumentalist in the near future.I am very good at improvising and stylizing on piano and with my voice. I have a rich baritone voice. I also have a comedic side. My lyrics are interesting and based on my experiences. The music on Joshua Eli…In His Element follows an emotional journey with a girl I met and lost and how it felt along the way. I still don’t know completely where it is all going on her account and where that relationship is taking me with my music. Try listening to me and my music. The music I write is beautiful, interesting, and enjoyable to spend some personal time listening to. My strength on piano is jazz but as you will hear I can sing and play piano in many genres. I am impressed that I can write down my feelings so accurately in my music and words. I have my music up on soundcloud.com under Joshua Eli Kranz, on radioairplay.com under Joshua Eli (my preferred professional name) and on my website joshuaelimusic.com where you can also read about me and see what I look like and what I have done and am doing. Also, on YouTube.com under Joshua Eli Kranz you can see me at Clear Lake Recording Studios recording my music. I look forward to speaking to my new and old friends about composing music/ lyrics and its rewards and challenging moments. For the first time I really feel in control of what I am doing. I enjoy that feeling. I hope you have a nice New Year. I just finished writing a couple of songs. My New Year’s wish is to produce the best album I can and for my new and old friends to enjoy listening to what I can do. Once my album is complete I will be performing my music in LA. Then we can actually meet and talk music.
