Driven by an unwavering determination and passion for his craft, Tim Wu – best known as Elephante – has amassed a deep catalogue of original music that has earned him rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone, SiriusXM, Beats 1 and Billboard as well as respect from the cream of the dance music elite. His musical maturity, melodic sensibilities and innate ability to create genre-defying hits time and time again could have him easily mistaken for an artist way beyond his years and has seen the dance pop prodigy win the hearts of legions of fans across the world.
Hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Tim began his musical career as a classically trained pianist and singer-songwriter, playing in bands in high school and college. Graduating from the world-renowned Harvard University, soon after taking his first desk job Wu realized that the corporate lifestyle was not for him, as he spent every waking hour producing music to admittedly keep himself sane. Finally embracing the ‘Elephant in the room’ that was his desire to break free from the monotonous 9-5 routine, Wu set his sights on the dance music sphere and Elephante was born - quite literally giving up his day job in order to hone his craft and make his mark as one of the most innovative dance music producers around today.
