A Letter From Ellis



In some palace back room in Paris, Mozart would pluck at the piano composing melodic symphonies and operas for the dukes, and the duchesses, kings, and queens=2E He leaned on these people just as they leaned forward to hear the songs ringing in their powdered concert hall=2E



Their patronage became a co-writer in a sense, they provided the support for the talented wigged-one to have the time, supplies, instruments, and room to produce some of the best music ever written=2E There would be no Mozart without their generosity, investment and complete belief in his craft=2E  He would bring the songs to concert halls, and the audiences would have the magical feeling that they participated in the process of creation=2E Queens were transported=2E Princesses swooned=2E Kings smiled with satisfaction=2E



I use a guitar and travel around bars, churches, galleries and theatres=2E  No palaces here, but Mozart and I are in the same business, nonetheless=2E



I have about twenty fresh song ideas and am eager to get back in the studio=2E I should have them all completed by August, and if you come to any show between now and then, you will hear them in concert=2E Some of them you may recognize already, "Hurricane Angel", "Once upon a Summertime", and "The Cotton's Burning" for example, are fully finished and waiting for a home on this album=2E



Ralph, my manager and I, have decided not to chase down another record label to put this project out=2E The music industry is so completely usable now for an artist of my scale that a label seems to be like working for the man unnecessarily=2E We are eager to see how successfully we can fundraise for the project and promote this batch of songs without the help of an outside label=2E This way, profits go back to Black Wolf, our label, to help us continue to cultivate projects and foster new and amazing talent into the world, such as we did with Antje Duvekot=2E



I am very excited about these songs, and I think it is among the best batch I have ever harvested before going into a studio=2E But I need help bringing in the crop=2E We need tractors, laborers, and scythes=2E



We are seeking community support for the project through a fundraising ladder that will help build this new recording grain by grain=2E You folks are even more than Mozart's dukes and the duchesses=2E You are the workers in the fields, helping bring the harvest of songs to market=2E You can still picture yourselves in the powdered wigs and satin leggings, if that works for you=2E



Many thanks for the support,

Ellis
