Hey! My name is Elian Garcia Carbone. That's Syrian, Mexican and Italian respectively. It's a colorful combination that drives my passion for community, narrative, movement and song.Since being a teenager, and through living abroad in India, Spain, Dominican Republic, South Africa, Cuba or New Zealand, I’ve carried a little notebook in my back pocket, ready to jot down the next "big" lyric. These songwriting notebooks have archived my connections to people and places and it is these relational stories that most readily inform my songwriting style. I currently work in operations at the Bellingham Food Bank and as Co-coordinator for the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop. I teach Cuban salsa dancing and am pursuing my masters in counseling psychology. For the last two years, I have been a part of the most supportive songwriting group. It's a full life! What's the glue? I'm still figuring that out...It's a pleasure to meet you!
