Our Man In The Field :: The Company Of Strangers

by

Our Man In The Field is de naam die de Engelsman Alexander Ellis zichzelf toegeëigend heeft en die helemaal bij hem past. Het zijn verhalen over zijn omzwervingen over de wereld. The Company Of Strangers is de titel van zijn debuut en die ligt in het verlengde van het werk van de jonge Neil Young. Er is de pedal steel die de muziek iets triests en tijdloos geeft. Maar behalve de fraaie muziek, zijn het toch vooral de liedjes die indruk maken en die The Company Of Strangers tot iets bijzonders maakt.

Think of Our Man In The Field – AKA Alexander Ellis – as an independent correspondent, with his works dispatches from his travels. So classically crafted are Ellis’ songs that you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve heard Our Man In The Field somewhere before. He and his brilliant band of pedal steel, guitar, banjo, upright bass and drums (with fine harmony backing vocals) take inspiration from the alt-Americana and Caledonian soul stylings of Van Morrison, Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Ryan Adams and Wilco. His own sound is indefinable yet familiar- its introspective, intimate and deeply soulful style stands comfortably alongside modern day artists Ray LaMontagne, Damien Rice, Foy Vance and Joe Purdy.
