Elamar Edwards, born August 1st, 1990, is an artist and songwriter. He was born in a small village in Israel (Dimona, Israel) in which he was one of 25 other children in his family. With the rest of his family, Elamar attended The Brotherhood School in Dimona. Elamar first learned the arts at this school within studies of visual arts and music. However, he took more to music and greatly enhanced his music skill with the opportunity to sing and play music every day. Elamar learned many different music styles and skills, which lead him to create a genre he doesn’t even know how to describe. His latest single “Breaking Distance” does give me more of a pop vibe, yet it has a lot of creative flairs present by Elamar.
“Breaking Distance” begins with smooth, gentle guitar chords that strum pleasing chords. It is very inviting to the listener, providing the feeling that anyone can pick up “Breaking Distance” and listen to it. Further on in the track, we are greeted with a nice acoustic drum set and a gentle bassline that really help solidify “Breaking Distance”. As the song moves throughout its structure, there are a lot of nice musical breaks and quieter parts that let the listeners' ears have a chance to regain strength and let Elamar’s vocals shine. Speaking of vocals, in “Breaking Distance”, Elamar’s voice really suits the type of instrumental in the background. It is soft, yet present, and it is unique in the fact that his tone is very inviting, just like the song. Furthermore, Elamar’s lyrics aren’t just about insignificant topics either. He often speaks of love and wanting to spread his love throughout his music. In “Breaking Distance”, we think Elamar did a really good job of creating a song that can be enjoyed by anyone, without losing any creativity.

Hi Elamar! Welcome to BuzzMusic. Our team is happy to be representing you and your track “Breaking Distance”. You mentioned that you don’t think you really fit under one genre. Is that because you believe your music doesn’t sound like recognizable genres, or because you like to write in many different genres and to put on a label on you wouldn’t make sense?
I say this because of my understanding of music and knowing the teachings of the power of words and the way they are used. So I call my music songs of deliverance. A positive and productive song. Yes, it may be some songs that can be recognized by deferent genres but it’s the content of the songs that makes it deferent.
Being born into such a big family is truly a blessing. What is one crazy story you can remember in your family memories? Also, do you have any talented musicians (other than yourself) in the family you like to play music with?
Haha, yes I have a very big family we have had a wonderful free childhood With many memories that’s how it is growing up in the community (the Hebrew Israelites in Dimona Israel). I think the one memory that stands out the most is the crazy somehow creative games we would play. Always walking on the edge of danger! We use to go out to the mountains to look for scorpions/ants and play with them.
In your bio, you also mentioned you have a passion for visual arts. Do you still like to draw or create those kinds of pieces of artwork today? Has it given you any more opportunities in life, or in your music career?
Yesss I love it, it was major back then. It used to take me to places of relaxation and allow me to express myself in a beautiful way. Once I got more into my music I found that expression with playing the guitar and being able to not just draw them emotions but actually sing them and that simply took over
With all of your releases, your main message you like to send out is love. What does the meaning of Love mean to you? How would you say you like to share your love with people in your everyday life?
Yes, love is major in my life! major energy. To me, energy is everything this magnitude of energy is huge. So I focus on things That can uplift people. That’s my major goal sharing vibes that are productive and positive.
Thank you for talking with us Elamar. What can fans expect to hear next from you?
At this stage, I’m experiencing the emotions of the heart and the level of excitement is high so if I’m blessed enough to have understood I’ll be able to share more songs that are born from these beautiful emotions of mine.
