Mom I Made It! This slogan applies to no one better than Eli Preiss. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter is the latest signing to Universal Music Austria’s sublabel of the same name. Eli Preiss released three independently and critically acclaimed EPs and earned the title as FM4 Soundpark Act of the Month.
Socialized with the R&B of the late 90’s and early 2000’s, Eli has retooled her influences from back then. To a multi-layered, musical melange between hip-hop, R&B, pop and rap, Eli Preiss deals in her lyrics with the acceptance of her own self – with all its contradictions and mood swings, life, growing up and her role as a young woman in society.
