Robert Ellis :: The Lights From The Chemical Plant


robertellis-thelightsfromthechemicalplant-coverRobert Ellis, geboren in Texas en tegenwoordig woonachtig in Nashville, is een rootsy en hedendaagse combi van Paul Simon, Randy Newman, James Taylor en Tom Waits. Maar tegelijkertijd is hij ook heel erg zijn eigen unieke zelf. The Lights From The Chemical Plant is zijn meesterwerk. Avontuurlijker dan ooit, intelligente, humoristische en emotionele teksten. Luister naar Bottle Of Wine (And A Bag Of Cocaine) en het wordt duidelijk hoe bijzonder Ellis is. Opzienbarend is de enige cover: Simon’s Still Crazy After All These Years.

Robert Ellis is the kind of songwriter who only comes along once in a great while. With his First two albums, a promise was made. With his new record, The Lights from the Chemical Plant, that promise has been delivered and fully realized. The music, like the artist, refuses to accept the confines of a box, and burns white–‐hot from the inside out. But what seems even more striking about this record, this musician, even at a First glance, is that feeling of unyielding authenticity.
