Eli JacobVocal Coach & Founder
From a young age, I was always dancing and performing. I would breakdance in the living room and salsa in the kitchen. I loved to mimic Michael Jackson. When I was 8, I was a lead vocalist in the Russian Orchestra and got to tour all over Europe. My family moved to Israel. The move exposed me to incredible new cultures and music far different from the classical repertoire I was used to. Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Turkish, Hebrew, and, of course, English.
At 14, we moved to Canada and I became fascinated with pop culture so I began to sing, write and compose in English. It was a tough transition and I had a lot to learn about what’s cool in Western pop culture. Fate put me in touch with a talented producer who worked with big names like Celine Dion and Sean Desmond. Dabbling in different genres helped me figure out who I was and what I liked. I started writing my own tracks and performing my music all over the world, while also working as an artist mentor for some of the biggest record companies around the world like Sony, Warner, Universal and BMG Japan.
Most vocal coaches don’t have the know-how or real industry experience that is necessary to fast-track artist development.
When you coach a vocalist, you’re not just listening to how they hit a note – that’s not enough. You’re thinking about their persona as an artist, how to accent and augment words, how to do a vocal take on a track. I wanted more than just vocal exercises from my vocal coach. I needed help and guidance as an artist. This is what I saw was lacking, so after years of experience and personal success I decided develop Artist Success Method to help singers develop into artists and performers.
