Meet Mendeleyev Allan-blitz

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mendeleyev Allan-blitz.

Mendeleyev, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
My name is Mendeleyev Galileo Einstein Pythagoras Darwin Euclid Leonardo Allan-Blitz… I’m not joking. I’m named after scientists. I grew up in Santa Barbara in the mountains with hippie parents. I have two brothers (one was named after philosophers, the other comedians). The house I was literally born in, burned down when I was 17 and I lost everything I’ve ever owned. That experience has defined my life for many years. Both tragic and liberating… Eventually moved to Boston to go Berklee College of music for guitar! Where I pursued songwriting and performance. (Studying voice, bass drums, and piano as well). I’ve spent years street performing which helped me develop my style. I’ve lived after graduation, I moved to LA where I’ve been for four years. Performing, writing/collaborating, teaching, and producing!

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I am a singer/songwriter who’s become obsessed with electronic music. I am a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, drums, bass, voice, piano, ukulele, and the computer) My message IS inspiration. Plain and simple… I get people singing together. No matter where I am. I want to keep inspiring everyone I am around from my students to my fellow musicians. My goal is inspire more people to play more music. In order to do that I strive to be as musically diverse as possible. I’m happy to be contagious. 😃

The stereotype of a starving artist scares away many potentially talented artists from pursuing art – any advice or thoughts about how to deal with the financial concerns an aspiring artist might be concerned about?
I believe we have to try and be as diverse as we can within our creative field. Keep playing everywhere and sharing your talents you have. If you aren’t very talented, do everything possible to learn! Teaching is very valuable these days. If you play an instrument, teach it to others. If you don’t know how to play one, learn the ukulele and teach it to others (it’s an untapped goldmine). If you don’t know how to make videos, start doing it immediately and you may be hired to help other shoot (every business needs a good video). If your and singer and can’t find a gig, go on the street and start singing. There is always someone who wants to listen to you and support you. Just keep at it…

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I have music released on Spotify/iTunes/Apple music etc… Music videos/live videos available on my YouTube channel @mendeleyevmusic. A good way to follow my show schedule is on Instagram @mendeleyev (Also my Facebook/Twitter page – Mendeleyev music)

    Let’s just say that Pinot Noir is my favorite wine. Your voice is beautiful, you are beautiful, but it is your soul shining through that led me to research you, purchase your tunes, and watch and rewatch your videos. You are a balm to the heart in these troubled times. Your life’s challenge, I believe, will now be to remain true to yourself within the waves of fame that will be washing over you, as you navigate through this sea of change,

    Hi Mendeleyev, Just wanted to say hello from your extended family in St. Louis. We were all so proud to see you perform on the Voice. So happy to see you get four chairs and disappointed that we will not be able to see you on future shows but happy we found your website and can still see some of your music. Give our best to your father and the rest of your family. Also tell your dad I am friends with one of his old friends Irv Gutterman and he told me to tell your dad hi.

    Love your Baritone, love your song choice on The Voice, and dig your lyrics on your own material. Consider touring; you’d beat the pants off a lot of the stuff out there and add to your youtube presence–Please!
