Joel Benoiton aka The EL Clan is a 20 year old rapper/songwriter from Peterborough England.
“I would say the most unique part about my music is the lyrics, it’s the best way for me to express my emotions and opinions on different subject matters.” says the rapper
His latest single ‘Stages Of Grief’ focuses on how hard it is to lose a loved one. Each verse takes place at a different point in time. The first verse takes place quite soon after the loved one has passed and the emotions are still very raw. The second verse talks about how over time it will feel better and that one just has to keep moving forward. The third verse takes place years later and it shows that just because a person has been gone for so long doesn’t mean that they fade away from your memory.
“This song means a lot to me and it’s about something that everyone will experience at some point.” he adds.

I recored the song mimicking my impression of his voice and how I felt he would sing it.” Please provide a one or two-line personal quote that can be attributed to a band member, about either the band themselves or the release.
