Elias Soh is a familiar voice to many people to turn on their radio to local station LUSH 99.5FM. Having worked with both local and international acts, and a resume that is nothing short of awesome, where Elias is today, is an epitome of hardwork and passion.
As a kid, Elias would play with play with a tape recorder at home, pretending to be a radio DJ, imitating his childhood hero, Robin Williams in ‘Good Morning Vietnam’. Little did he know, a toy would catapult him into his career and calling.
Something that struck us here at Klipsch was his passion and determination. To tell you his life are all flowers and daffodils would be too good to be true. It did not come easy, what he does today. Elias was offered a show by Vanessa Fernandez in LUSH during the 3rd year of his time in Nanyang Technological University. It was a strenuous time in school, but he decided to take up the challenge instead.
‘When opportunities come, you have to take it, even if it is tough.’
He recounts his days when he had to sacrifice sleep, go to school in the day, get to work in the evening, and stay in the office till 3am finishing up assignments.
‘The degree is important, but it is just a plus. Work hard, get your Paper qualifications and push yourself hard.’
Today, he is enjoying the fruits of his labour, being a radio DJ, hosting shows, and running events. It didn’t come easy, but we’re glad they came. We are excited to have him on Team Klipsch, because we epitomise the same spirit. No bullsh*t. Just passion and excellence.
Elias uses the Klipsch Reference X6i and the Image R6 On Ears.
