Ellis Paul
“Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an
Artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the
transformative potential of his music." - New York Times

Ellis Paul’s songwriting credentials are unassailable. They are as genuine as the 14 Boston Music Awards he has earned, as indelible as the tattoo of Woody Guthrie that adorns his arm, and as authentic as the musical roots he draws upon with
every note he plays.

Since emerging from the Boston music scene, Ellis Paul’s music has been consistently recognized and celebrated worldwide. His 16 releases and loyal, enthusiastic audiences reinforce this acclaim and have since cemented his place as one of America’s most talented songwriters.

With 16 CDs, a concert DVD, and a book of poems and short stories to his credit, Ellis' songs have been featured on the soundtracks to documentaries, TV shows and big Hollywood films such as The Farrelly Brother’s ‘Hall Pass’, ‘Me, Myself & Irene’, and ‘Shallow Hal’. Ellis is a true American troubadour, performing over 150 tour dates a year, for over 20 years all around the world. He has shared the stage with some of the top names in the music world including: Pete Seeger, John Mayer, Arlo Guthrie, Richie Havens, Dar Williams, Shawn Colvin, and multi-platinum band Sugarland, among others.

His 2011 Release “The Day After Everything Changed” was recorded in Nashville and 100% funded by his fans. The
album features five songs co-written by his good friend, Kristian Bush of Sugarland, and several of the Sugarland band members served as Ellis’ backing band for the recording. Throughout the past couple of years, to keep the collaboration alive, Paul opened numerous sold-out arena dates for Sugarland on their Incredible Machine Tour.

Recently, Ellis has been extremely busy, releasing his second family album, entitled, "The Hero in You", that features 12 American heroes such as: Rosa Parks, Woody Guthrie, Jackie Robinson, Thomas Edison and more. This release won the Gold Parents' Choice Award, the top honor awarded in family music. “The Hero in You” serves as a follow up to “The Dragonfly Races”, Ellis’ first family album, and a Silver Parents' Choice Award winner which was honored by being National Public Radio’s “Top 10” pick for Children’s music.

Additionally, in December of 2012, Ellis released his very first holiday album, "City of Silver Dreams", featuring 9 original tracks and one cover, with one song co-written by Ellis, Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland. The release is a ‘fan release only’ (commercial release in late 2013), as a part of his fan-supported fundraiser that is currently being held to support Ellis’ upcoming new studio album, set to be released in the first half of 2013. The new studio release has Sugarland’s Kristian Bush as producer.

“Ellis has a voice that is so powerful that you know who it is the second he comes through your radio. His music and songs are a new birth in American sound that makes me want to go see concerts again.” Kristian Bush / Sugarland

Woody Guthrie’s daughter, Nora, says of Ellis, “A singer songwriter is only as good as the times he reflects. Wise, tender, brilliant and biting, Ellis is one of our best human compasses, marking in melodies and poems where we’ve been and where we might go if we so choose to. Personally Ellis, I’m goin’ where you’re goin’!”
