CROSS-POLLINATION CLIII - TUES JUL 31ST - 7:30-10 PM
ELIJAH B. TORN
CAUSE

Elijah B Torn ( born 1979 in Ithaca, New York) is an electronic musician who lives and performs in New York City. He is the eldest son of guitarist David Torn.

"Sarge - Shukar Rough," Torn's first album was released on the now defunct Can't Stop Eating label. It has received airplay both on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic and RTQE on WORT-FM 89.9.

Elijah B. Torn has also fashioned many remixes, including those for former label-mates Sleepwalker and Betray the Species; Epic Artist Susie Suh; PutDownThatSciencePole, Film Composer Alexander Lasarenko and Scottish songwriters Quinn. Regardless, Torn does not consider himself a remix artist. "I don't want to label myself as producing 'electronic music' or subscribe to the whole 'I make beats' mentality. I make music and that's that." Torn writes on his webpage.

CAUSE, born and raised in the Bronx, often compared to having lyrical abilities such as Common or Talib Kweli with the mainstream appeal of Kanye West, is quickly gaining a loyal fan base at only 20 years old. Taking on the burdens of his community while passionately painting a picture of greatness in leadership, CAUSE is ready to transcend a new movement in Hip Hop.


His mission: to show the music listener that dominance as an MC does not come from following trend, but proving to be a versatile, trailblazing artist skilled at not only making crowds move but taking them to the depths of their emotions.
