Introducing David Eliakis
As a young boy David Eliakis grew up listening to a variety of musicians and genres with the birth of MTV and MuchMusic, and it was apparent from early on that his curiosity was peaked by the rebellious, non-conforming artists that were challenging the 'norm'.
His classical influences came from his cousins who taught him to play Bach and Chopin until his Uncle Phillip unexpectedly showed up with a piano for David.
Now, as a well-established pianist and voice coach, he continues to seek out the lesser-known artists and works that often get overlooked. With a strong belief that everyone deserves to be heard, if only just once, David continues to give a voice to those who have been ignored.
Music has always been David's sole means of expression, and with such a varied list of influences from Nina Simone to The Smiths he brings a unique and fascinating approach to sharing his love of art song and opera.
