About Eli Goffa

Eli Goffa is a project of Elie De Prijcker from Sint-Niklaas (BE). He grew up with dad's record collection from the sixties and seventies, you can hear that from his fragile but also powerful self-written songs inspired by CSN&Y, José Gonzales, Blind Faith or Ray Lamontagne.

He has been playing the guitar since childhood and has an impressive performance, which did not go unnoticed when he surprised the jury in the Voice van Vlaanderen (2014), garnered a standing ovation with his portrayal of Neil Young and made it to the semi-finals.

Eli Goffa has done support acts for Hooverphonic, Bent Van Looy, Paul Weller, Novastar and Frances, and has performed at large and smaller festivals in Belgium and the Netherlands. In 2017 his singles were in the Belgian playlist of Radio 1 and Radio 2 for ten weeks, in 2018 his single "How" bout a little love "was in the Dutch playlist of NPORadio 5 and NPORadio 1 where he could be heard daily.

At the end of 2017 his first album 'Written in the stars' was released on which he worked with producer David Poltrock. That year Het Depot (Leuven) appointed him 'Artist In Residence'. In 2018 Eli won the 'Exposure Music Awards' and consequently played a showcase in London.
