Live @ The Steamer: Ellis Paul

Ellis Paul

“Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential in his


– The New York Times

Some artists document their lives through their music. Others

chronicle their times. It’s a rare artist who can do both, telling their

own story through songs that also encapsulate the essence of

people and places who have helped define their era overall.

Woody Guthrie comes to mind, and so does Bob Dylan. Bruce

Springsteen certainly as well. Yet few others, for whatever genius

they may possess, can relate their own history to the history

experienced by those who find that common bond, be it in a

coming of age, living through the same realities or sharing similar


Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters. Though some

may refer to him as a folk singer, he is more, for lack of a better

word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out

from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and

sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another,

regardless of age or upbringing. The exhilaration of the open

road. A celebration of heroes. The hope for redemption.

Descriptions of those things that are both near and dear. The

sharing of love…, intimate, passionate and enduring.
