Eliza May, the Los Angeles-based DJ and producer, has made a name for herself within the music industry. Born in the small town of Raduzhny, Russia, Eliza May’s journey to becoming an international electronic DJ and influencer has been no small feat. With her unique turntablism skills, Eliza’s innovative sound and performance brings heightened creativity into the EDM, synthesized world.
Her newest single, “My Angel” is deeply personal and inspired by the tragic death of her sister when she was young. Rather than utilize someone else’s vocals, this is the first single that demonstrates Eliza’s vocal abilities. “My Angel” is helping to bring closure to her healing process.
“This is a song in memory of my sister who was killed when I was 5 years old,” shares Eliza. “I’m releasing it on April 19, the day of her death. I made the beat, my husband played guitar and it is the first track that I’m singing on! Before that, I’ve only worked with other vocalists. I’ve never shared anything that personal before but I know that this song is very relatable to many people as we all have lost someone at least once.”
Sprinkled with electropop elements, Eliza beautifully takes the listener through the song, connecting with the childlike sensibility in all of us. The sounds utilized in “My Angel” offer a playfulness unlike anything you’ll hear in her other bodies of work. She lets the music speak for itself and isn’t afraid of showcasing vulnerability. Her background as a classically trained pianist gives “My Angel” the deeply infectious melody that is surely to give anyone an earworm.
