Jun 6 2013 - Ellis Paul Updates New Art Gallery amp New Album Update

Ellis in the studio in Atlanta with the Sugarland crew

Hey everybody-

I'm heading back to Atlanta to put the finishing touches on the new CD project--- we are recording at Kristian Bush's place with Kristian and Brandon Bush producing. Some of the songs I am currently playing at shows --- "Kick Out the Lights", "Chasing Beauty" and a few others may make an appearances as well. I'm thrilled with how it is sounding, I couldn't be surrounded by better friends and musicians. It reminds me a bit of the album "Stories" in that the songs are narrative and little movies in a person's life. I'm thrilled to have Kristian and Brandon bringing their years of expertise to the project and honored to have members of Sugarland playing as the band.

The songs are focused around Guinness, my guitar, who plays a bigger role on this project than any guitar on any previous recording. I think you'll love the results.

We are in the final months of fundraising! If you would like to help partner this project to completion please jump on board soon! We have over 500 enthusiastic partners that have helped this project come to life-- Click this link to get involved, we need your help to bring this home!

I'm playing all over the country this summer--- this weekend I am swinging up to NYC at Joe's Pub on Friday, Homer, NY on Saturday-- then the northeast the following week and Atlanta after that! Check out the schedule and come hear some new material and the older songs as well--

Hope you are basking in sunshine--
Cheers!
Ellis



Where’s Ellis this weekend?

Ellis will be making his way up to NYC for a show at Joe’s Pub on Friday night, then starting his Saturday off with a special family show at James V. Brown Library in Williamsport, PA.

He’ll be ending his weekend with a show at the Center for the Arts in Homer, NY on Saturday night, with Ellis' friend, fellow musician Flynn opening. Here’s a great article from the Syracuse New Times that was just released in anticipation of the show!
