“Using the dog as my main subject ended up feeling right for me. I’ve seen so many people experiencing homelessness in LA, with dogs. The dog being the one thing some people have to care for while on the streets. The dog with his unconditional love.”     – Eligh Nachowitz

Eligh’s inspiration for making hip hop music came in the mid 1980s from the film Beat Street and LL Cool J’s “I’m Bad.”

Eligh, a self-described “genre-breaking, obsessive bass fiend” has continued to sustain himself as a salient figure for over fifteen years within the increasingly fickle and rapidly revolving world of hip-hop. The Los Angeles native has maintained his respected status by fearlessly veering from a traditional trajectory which is often limited to beats and rhymes. Instead, Eligh has chosen to fabricate projects that incorporate the gritty sounds of the UK dub scene, the unorthodox styling of indie rock, the lush guitars and honesty of folk music, and the complexity of jazz, all without losing the listener in a musically esoteric composition.

In 2020, Eligh will be releasing 4 new albums – 2 solo albums, one notably produced by Bay Area Legend  DJ.Fresh, an album with long time collaborator The Grouch and a new album with his group Grand Tapestry.

My message is always one of listening to your intuition, speak your mind, and the universe will provide. You’re never alone in your feelings, anxiety, depression. Space and time, and amazing abstract concepts are always part of my music world. Recovery, and letting people know there is a way to get clean and stay clean, is my message as well. You should know that once you give my music a chance, or even just my art in general, I think you’ll leave feeling something. “      – Eligh Nachowitz

Close to my heart, warm, safe

Now grow, free, form, shape

A dream is like a life you see it comes from a seed

A tiny one called hope that blossoms in your time of need

It can’t be harvested or rushed by lust, greed

When no one else will, you must believe

Told to me by an old man, we met out on a caravan

Side of the road he sobbed, head in is hands

When he looked up at me, his eyes still stream

He told me tears about the blood of a man’s crushed dream

And that they only die because we keep them deep inside

Rich men keep dreams, foolish men keep pride

At A Lee Dog Story, we believe that art is incredibly powerful and helps to connect and celebrate community, showcase values, and embrace the humanity of all people. In order to change the current paradigm on homelessness in Memphis and around the country, we will come together as a community to learn more about the humanity of those experiencing homelessness through a variety of artistic mediums. 

Human beings, get em up to they full potential

Living the life they were meant to live, I’m the fight

I’m the fight, I’m the fight inside that you feel

Back and forth in your mind

Everybody got a reason to live

Everybody got a contribution to give

Talent comes in many forms

In and out of many storms, weather storm

– Eligh

When the doubt seeps in, stranded in the deep end

Find it difficult to breathe in

What is left of me inside, feels like it’s been nullified

Well your fortune ain’t told so you live it

Can’t escape fate, might as well just admit it

Is it what you thought it would be like

You don’t have to tell me twice

Deep in the ether nebulous vast

Cannot undo the mistakes of the past

And I’ve lost my way ay ay

In the face of the unknown, I wanna run home

Stitches coming unsewn, wish I wasn’t so grown

It’s shaking my faith ay ay

The presence of this luminescence it pervades my every atom

Peace of mind and all the answers

Wish I could say that I had em

Attempt to fathom what it’s like when I’m gone

All I ask is that you let your light shine on, shine on
