"Teplin sings from the soul and writes from the heart; he's absolutely real and I love that about him... This cat has such a distinct voice and there's no doubt that he's got 'it'!" - Quincy Jones
Eli Teplin is a classically trained, pop artist, songwriter, pianist and guitarist, who began as a local performer in Nashville and made his way to Los Angeles after being discovered and signed by Quincy Jones.
With influences such as John Mayer, Brian Wilson, Bruce Hornsby and Billy Joel, Teplin chases his own style of pop music, while placing an emphasis on his classical foundations. As a pianist and guitarist, Teplin studied music at the New England Conservatory in Boston and later moved to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University. Deanna Walker, his professor at Vanderbilt, recognized his high level of musicality in songwriting. She believed in his extraordinary talents and encouraged him to pursue music, in hopes that his songs would be heard by a broader audience.
Teplin's music caught the attention of Quincy Jones, which later resulted in the signing to Jones' international roster of musicians. Not long after moving to Los Angeles, Teplin started collaborating with Greg Wells (credited on albums by Adele, Katy Perry, twenty one pilots, OneRepublic). After recording a few demos, he also caught the attention of BMG and was signed shortly thereafter.
Teplin is currently working with producer Greg Wells on his debut album to be released in 2018.
