Editorial Reviews

Who is Robert Ellis? At first glance, he's simply a smiling, longhaired, twenty-two year old in a hand-stitched western shirt and Dwight Yoakam-tight blue jeans. But there's more to this youthful Houston, Texas native than meets the eye.

The New York Times recently proclaimed that Ellis sounds "equally inspired by Jackson Browne and George Jones." Not a bad reference point for an artist his age. Ellis cut his teeth performing the songs of similar luminaries around town, most notably at the
neighborhood beacon, Fitzgerald's. His "Whiskey Wednesdays" at that club are regularly
packed with punkish newcomers and graying locals sharing a mutual interest in artists
ranging from Ray Price to Buck Owens to George Jones.

Ellis has songwriting ability equal to his encyclopedic knowledge of these greats and it shines on his upcoming New West Records debut, Photographs, due this July. The young songwriter's second release is an impressive and diverse concept album split between five breathtaking folk songs and five soon-to-be country standards. Listening to Photographs, one finds it difficult to pigeonhole Robert Ellis. It's even harder to remember that he s barely just begun. So, rather than have us try to crack the code of this talented young troubadour, we figured we'd let Ellis tell you about himself.

I was stumbling along clicking through the Amazon site, looking to see if this wonderful singer/songwriter, Robert Ellis, had a new album. Well he only released Photographs last year but I am eager to hear lots more. While I was clicking through, I noticed that there are only 4 reviews for this album. Holy smokes. This guy should be blowing up. This album is on repeat ad infinitum in my truck. One of the best debuts I've heard in my 35 years of existence. We're looking at a true genius. His voice is soft, but his lyrics hit hard. The musicianship is stellar. I don't usually write reviews, but I couldn't let this one go.

On his song "Coming Home," a beauty, he clearly declares his influences: "I got Lefty, Willie, Hank and Townes to keep me company." I got the disc because I'm a Willie Nelson and Hank Williams fan, but there is a lot more here than just a Hank Williams wannabe. So young, maybe 23, 24, this Robert Ellis is wise beyond his years and well worth a listen. He seems to have his act together and, like I said, I'm looking forward to another album.

This is the real deal folks.

Robert Ellis has created a distinct country style that is also very traditional. Listen to a couple of his songs,and you immediately know who the artist is. And like all good songs, each listen to the tunes on this collection shows something new and makes you want to hear more. I recently saw Mr. Ellis open for the Drive By Truckers in Los Angeles and his understated yet strong stage presence and playing made for a memorable performance. Check this album out and then check him out live!

And I would only give five stars to my favorite records of all time. By, say, George Jones or Paul Simon, of which Ellis is a good mixture.

I had the recent opportunity to see Robert Ellis open up for the Old 97's in Chicago. Usually when you see the opening act people are distracted, talking, etc.. Not here. Robert and the rest of the band had the audience mesmorized.

They are truly one of the most amazing tight knit bands I have ever seen. I was hooked after one song as was most the crowd.

I bought the CD at the show two weeks ago and haven't taken it out of my car since. Robert and the band have a quiet confidence that is lacking in most music. I have not stopped talking about them since I've seen them. Take a listen, you won't be disappointed.

The first time I saw Robert Ellis he must have been 19 years old. It was downstairs at the Avant Garden and he opened for Sideshow Tramps who I'd heard was a must see act. I went to find out what this Sideshow Tramps thing was all about, but I went home raving about the opener. Robert Ellis just felt like the "real deal". He even reminded me of Nick Drake, one of my favorite singer/songwriters of all time. I followed him mostly from afar after that as I could never seem to get out to see him at his residency on Wednesdays at Mango's or Fitzgerald's. I'd catch him on the weekends when I could. When his new album came out I started listening to it and dove deep into it. "Side A" is stark and gorgeous while "Side B" is good old fashioned country in the vein of Charlie Rich, probably one of my favorite Country singers ever. Seems like he's hitting more with the public on the Country side (he's amazingly versatile), but I hear him as an American version of late 60s British Folk, again like Houston's answer to Nick Drake. That Houston has an answer to Nick Drake is pretty amazing ain't it?!
