Elijah Wood has been surrounded by music and the arts throughout his entire life. His grandfather was a painter, his grandmother a concert pianist, his mother a professional vocalist, and his father a violinist and founding member of Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
His first professional opportunity came at age 14 when his father created the groundbreaking music education program “Electrify Your Strings!™” (EYS). Today, he tours with EYS and regularly performs in front of thousands of people all over the world. EYS and Elijah were featured on NBC’s The Today Show, CBS Evening News, and many others around the country. Elijah also tours with The Mark Wood Experience performing with symphony orchestras around the world. Most notably: Opole Philharmonic (Poland), Quad City Symphony, and the Houston Symphony.
In addition to the work with his father, he also performed with indie electro-rock pop band Exist Elsewhere whose hugely successful 2014 40-show Reach Tour was put together to raise awareness for bullying.
Elijah was the house drummer for Season 9 of America's Got Talent broadcast live at Radio City Music Hall. After the season ended, he was asked to be the house drummer for AGT Live! at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas. He continues to do events with the contestants.
Elijah is the drummer for OrKeystra. OrKeystra is a prog rock super group with Dream Theater's Jordan Rudess. The group debuted at the 2015 Winter NAMM show performing five times at the Korg USA booth.
Most recently, Elijah landed the coveted position as Shania Twain's new drummer for the Rock This Country tour starting June 5th.
He is also an accomplished studio musician with extensive experience in a variety of recording environments and has produced his own music, which is available on iTunes.
