Living Legends, The Grouch & Eligh are performing at Bloom Nightclub Friday July 27th. The Grouch is one of the founding members of the internationally infamous crew, The Living Legends. Humbly beginning on a 4-track recorder nearly 15 years ago, The Grouch has steadily grown into one of the prominent figures within the independent hip hop scene. Known for captivating his listeners with his down to earth and truthfully poignant raps and production, The Grouch has successfully released over nine solo projects making this year& Three Eyes Off The Time, his tenth solo release. In addition to his solo career, The Grouch has played an integral part in building the Living Legends brand, sound, and image. A consummate workaholic, The Grouch also has numerous groups outside of his solo career and LL collective, most notably: The Grouch Eligh, Zion I, and The CMA with Living Legends crewmate, Luckyiam.
In the mid and late 1990s, while simultaneously continuing to produce with Living Legends, Eligh released several self-pressed solo albums, such as As They Pass and Gas Dreams. In the early 2000s, he released darker and more cryptic albums such as Poltergeist and Enigma.
In 2005, Eligh took a break from music to confront his growing drug and alcohol addiction problems. After heroin usage nearly took his life, Eligh attempted to get clean on his own, but eventually realized that he needed to seek out help. On October 12, 2005, Eligh checked himself into a treatment center, and has been free from all drugs and alcohol ever since. The Grammy foundation MusiCares, helped Eligh get a bed at an addiction treatment center and assisted with the related costs.
Much of the music that Eligh has released post-2005 has been influenced by his recovery and sobriety, and he has frequently tried to use his experiences to positively influence others. His album Grey Crow was released in 2010. It is his seventh solo album, and has been Eligh’s best-selling album as an independent artist. Many of the songs on Grey Crow reflect on his struggles and new perspective on life, and the album has spawned many likes by underground hip hop fans, who praise Eligh’s unique flow and lyricism.
Eligh also released On Sacred Ground, a collaborative album with his mother, Jo Wilkinson, in 2009. In 2011, Eligh collaborated with producer Amplive of Zion I to create the album Therapy at 3.Combining his dogged work ethic with Living Legends’ DIY approach, Eligh has released over a dozen albums, and contributed on many more. Sometimes under the alias Gandalf, he has provided beats for rappers outside Living Legends crew, including Company Flow, Pigeon John, John Cena and Freestyle Fellowship. Eligh has been involved in a number of Living Legends offshoots as well, including Log Cabin, The Righteous Brothers, and The Grouch & Eligh.
