Harley Management, for distribution of Hackensack, New Jersey born soul man Elijah Bland's sophomore album "Soulcentric."

    Elijah Bland brings a refreshing new dimension to the modern world of soul music. Coupled with powerful lyrics and soulful grooves, his silky smooth delivery is a gift that has already touched many around the world. His sound fuses elements of funk, jazz, and R&B to create a unique brand of soul music.

He credits his parents as the founders of his musical journey: "They provided the opportunities for me to explore my gifts and create; I could never thank them enough!" says Elijah Bland.

    E. Harley Management CEO, Eric Harley added, "Anyone who knows this man can attest to his undying passion and love for creative expression. Elijah Bland has dedicated his life to the art of music and is committed to sharing his gift with the world, one soul at a time."
