Ellis Paul is a critically-acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet, and troubadour originally hailing from a potato farming family in northern Maine. He is the recipient of thirteen Boston Music Awards, second only to multi-platinum act, Aerosmith. Over the course of fifteen years, Ellis Paul has built a vast catalog of music which weds striking poetic imagery and philosophical introspection with hook-laden melodies.
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.
