ELLIS & ANGEL
... is a father and son composing/producing/performing music duo with an extremely unique quality and personality in their vintage style recordings. They're song crafting composing and recordings are closely related to a cross between The Eagles, 1970's era Rolling Stones, and Bad Co. Their influenced sound is a distinctly West Coast California sound where the country music scene meets the Pacific Ocean sunsets. This is the same area that spawned such country rock artists as The Eagles, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Neil Young, Dwight Yokum, and the legendary Bakersfield sound.
Their versatile song writing and performing style of Classic Rock, Country, Rock and Blues, and Soul echoes influences ranging from the classic, 1970's Rock music song crafting and vintage sounds. To the personal and dreamy side of modern and classic Country. You'll hear slight appreciation for artists like Allison Krauss, The Eagles, Bob Seger, Kenny Chesney, Lynyrd Skynyrd, to Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, even a faint echo of Pink Floyd heard now and then. If you like mid western, and English rock flavor, classic '70's production warmth, and heartfelt ethereal story telling ballads you'll love Ellis&Angel.
Ellis & Angel's attractive image and style is a combination of California beach, meets country and 70's era Rock with today's western sound. With a veteran professional music artist father and a handsome and talented son, together they cross generations and genres bringing allot of character and charm to their live performances.
