Eli Taylor Rickard (born 20 May 2003)[1] is an Australian Musical Producer, singer and rapper. He is known most prominently for his rap and stylistic work on his extended-play album "Audio1", an EP released just 5 months after his debut EP as well as his Christmas single, "Four Flowers" released in 2019.

Early Life[edit]

Rickard was born in Randwick, Sydney, Australia[1], to Australian parents, Dominique Mary Rickard and Peter Taylor. He was raised by his mother in Randwick until just after his 8th birthday when he and and his mother moved to the Central Coast[2] of NSW. He went on to attend High school at St Edwards College in East Gosford, NSW. It was during this period of study at St Edwards College that he began producing music again according to him in a tweet and statement to genius.com he had been writing music since he could speak "I used to force my mum to write words to the songs I came up with before I learned writing."[3] however had taken a four year break just shortly after the family's move due to ongoing mental health struggles.[3]


Rickard's public career began in 2019 with the release of his single "Lemonade Days" (released 8 June 2019)[4] a song that he himself later in a verified annotation to genius described as "a stepping stone"[5] however this song still remains one of his highest rating songs according to Spotify.[6] Second only to his most listened to song of 2019 "Us. Over." (released 20 June 2019)[7] a song recorded in just 12 days and described in verified annotation to genius as "the manifestation of a love locked in a limbo state."

In July 2019 Rickard released his Debut EP, "Same / Different" (released 15 July 2019)[8] to mixed reactions by the fans he had amassed, he later stated during an Instagram live stream "I actually really hated this album, it felt forced and actually just not like me"[9]. However whilst the EP is widely considered to be the worst EP by Rickard, the first song on the EP, "Low" still remains in the top 5 songs by Eli Rickard[6] The release of the Same / Different EP also marked the first public reference to Rickard's own Label "Paxard Music Group" as prior to this he was releasing his music independently.

Just 4 Months later Rickard released his "Audio1" EP (released 23 November 2019)[10], according to Spotify's trending list for Eli Rickard and released statistics by Rickard on his instagram; "Audio1" is Rickard's highest performing extended-play album. In an annotation to Genius he said, "This EP was really about creating a new phase for everything. We really felt a new self when making this. Obviously with Jay Wilms executive producing, the whole EP it really came out so well."[11] he also stated in early December 2019 on an Instagram live stream in response to a question asking "Was the process for making it any different to your original EP" - Unknown, "It was very similar in the actual process however it did take significantly longer but it was a more enjoyable experience by not only me but the team that was with me helping make it great."[12]

On December 12th 2019 Rickard tweeted his intentions to publish one last song for 2019[13] and just 9 days later he released "Four Flowers" (released 21 December 2019)[14], a single that Rickard himself referred to as "an extreme departure from my previous music and is the result of a late night voice memo that me and my producer really liked."[15] it is also worth noting that "Four Flowers" was recording entirely in Eli Rickard's family home.[16]
