Nick Ellis is a Liverpool based singer/songwriter and guitarist performing a style of streetscape narrative-noir blended with a classic British acoustic approach. Song and Melody. Some people call it folk, some just call it good old fashioned song craft. Using a blend of rhythmic attack and finger-quick lucidity, his sound has been described as ‘a conversation between Elvis Costello and John Martyn’. Ellis is also is the lead singer/songwriter with Liverpool beat modernists The Blue Soul.
Nick Ellis on writing: “…I see my Songs as chapters and scenes. My Albums as movies and books. Except, in this film, these stories are true…”
Nick Ellis on his sound: “…I like to use the guitar polyphonically when I play solo. I like to make it sound like a busy day, a place, an environment. And incorporate all those sounds you hear in the street. The conversations. The rhythms of the rain. The music of the traffic.”
