Ellis Paul in Seattle -- Rebecca Loebe opens

Seattle, WA

Just added! Rebecca Loeb, who is touring with Ellis, will open the show with a short set, and then sit in on a few songs with him.

A troubadour, a singer/songwriter, a folky, and a storyteller  are all fair labels for Ellis, but they do not quite suffice. However, the tattoo of Woody Guthrie worn proudly on his arm is a good starting place to know Ellis Paul.  It is from the Woody Guthrie tradition that he hails.  With an acoustic guitar in hand, he weaves intimate, provocative, and romantic tales of our lives.

Singer-songwriter great Bill Morrissey paid Ellis perhaps the ultimate compliment, saying " Ellis was always himself; he didn't try to separate himself from his audiences. Perhaps it's because he's a Mainer; there's no pretense, and I think audiences sense that."

Launching his career in Massachusetts, Ellis has been called the quintessential Boston songwriter more than a few times and has garnered the recognition and awards to back up that claim.  Since coming onto the scene in 1993, Ellis continues strong as a performer and a writer. Spending two-thirds of most years on the road has helped him perfect both crafts, with a lot of practice on-stage and a lot of people whose stories he retells in song.

Over the years and albums, his songs have gotten more personal.  He has turned out cds consistently through his 20+ year career.  His 16th cd, recently released Chasing Beauty, was produced by Kristian Bush of Sugarland and Brandon Bush of Sugarland/Train, with backing band - Sugarland, and backing vocals by Red Molly and Rebecca Loebe.  

Originally from Maine, Ellis now lives in Charlottesville, VA.
