ELIA is Ignacio Izquierdo.
Los Angeles based alternative singer-songwriter from Quito, Ecuador.

Son of a diplomat, Izquierdo lived many years abroad. His passion for aviation and history inspired him to use the name of the Italian pioneer aviator Elia Liut, who was the first to fly over Ecuadorian territory in 1920.

He has been a member of several indie bands: Turnover (Rome, Italy), Botelia (Quito, Ecuador) and Motozen (Quito, Ecuador). His first EP entitled Sentir (November, 2014) was recorded with drummer Michael Lerner from Telekinesis and producer Steven Aguilar (The Head and The Heart, Dave Matthews Band, Moby). 

In September 2016, Izquierdo released his first LP entitled Futuro Humano. It was co-produced with musicians/producers: Diego Recalde (We & The Machines) and Enrique Vela (UNO). The album, created in loving memory of Izquierdo's first daughter Amelia, was recorded primarily in Quito in the summer of 2015.

He has opened for various Latin Alternative acts, including: Gepe, Rudy de Anda, Las Cafeteras, La Vida Boheme, Javiera Mena, Francisca Valenzuela.
