Robert Ellis at KUTX 4.4.14

Sure he’s a young country singer with a thick twang in his voice set to the backdrop of a steel guitar, but don’t let your image of Robert Ellis end there. The lyrics this young man crafts prove he’s an old soul and a voice to be heard. As Paste Magazine says, “Robert Ellis understands the tenderness beneath the untamed’s leathery exterior.” For a country artist, Ellis pulls from a variety of other genres; the inspiration for his latest album, The Lights From The Chemical Plant (2014) include the likes of Paul Simon, Bill Withers, Ornette Coleman, and Randy Newman. And if you still aren’t intrigued, then know that album was in the magical hands of producer, Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings Of Leon, Modest Mouse, etc.). Listen to Robert Ellis recorded live in Studio 1A right HERE!
