Eli Pafumi has been playing and writing for over a decade. Each year brings new discoveries, and Pafumi's motivation to create is unwavering. His love of old school blues, classic rock, and folk, paired with his continuous exploration of composers, new instruments and upcoming songwriters, has allowed Pafumi to become a musician with a unique voice of his own, poised to move to the next level.
In the past, Pafumi has opened for such bands as We The Kings, Grace and Tony, and Native Run, but has spent the last two years touring the US and several other countries. Pafumi is a three-time Bernard/Ebb Songwriting Awards finalist, a TEDxHerndon speaker, and a composer for live theatre. His theatrical work has been performed at The Hub Theatre and Shippensberg University. Pafumi’s debut album, Finding North, was released in February 2016, and 2019 saw the release of his debut LP Savta’s Garden, for which he partnered with brother Jere Pafumi to form the recording project RitaRita.
