Born in 1978 in Beirut Lebanon, Tony Elieh was member and co-founder of Scrambled Eggs, one of Beirut’s most prolific and talented rock bands of the early 2000’s, and remained with the group from its beginnings until its precocious demise in 2015.
Tony Elieh is nowadays a member of improvising experimental ensembles Karkhana and Johnny Kafta’s Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra.
He worked on lots of projects and did many soundtracks for Lebanese movie directors such as A Perfect Day and Je Veux Voire by Khalil Joreige and Joana Hadjithomas, and Crayon of Askalan by Laila Hotait and with Nadim Tabet and Daniele Arbid. He has also performed a live accompaniment to Lebanese dancer Pierre Geagea’s performance Mother Tongue with Lebanese musician and Irtijal founder Sharif Sehnaoui.
Tony Elieh’s first solo album, entitled It’s Good To Die Every Now and Then (Al Maslakh Records #020), was released exclusively during Irtijal’17.
