“Peninsula Troubadours Song Chosen for Film.Born and raised in Port Townsend, Ellard has had a musical breakthrough. His original “Goodbye Song” is among the tunes chosen for the forthcoming movie “Dead in 5 Heartbeats,” inspired by Hell's Angel Sonny Barger's 2004 novel of the same name. The film, starring Jeff Black, David Della Rocco and Robert Chico Mora, is slated for an April 5 release “in select theaters,” said co-producer Christie Santo. She has gathered about 30 songs for its soundtrack, many of which were found on Facebook. Santo put the word out about “Heartbeats” on the social media site, and in came the music. “We had 200 songs donated,” the Phoenix-based filmmaker said this week. That's right: donated. Ellard isn't being paid for his “Goodbye Song.” In an interview before his show at the Highway Twenty Road House last Friday, the singer-songwriter said he eventually might receive royalties from a “Dead in 5 Heartbeats” soundtrack CD.”

“You are one of the few true artists I've seen on this site (ReverbNation) and I appreciate that. Keep it up.”

“Living Waters Music Listening to "Goodbye Song", the third I've listened to. Excellent songwriting. Lyrically, there are real feelings and situations that reach to the heart; musically, a sharp simplicity adorned with the occasional perfect chord change or flourish - all done with a perfect balance and harmony between the two. Well done! ”

“Record Companies interested in PT's Battle of the Bands. Brian 'Buck' Ellard was in a Battle of the Bands as a solo contestant. In a contest which lasted just over 2 months, he came in second place as the only solo entertainer against full metal bands and rap artists with backing vocals and recorded media.”
