Very few albums, let alone debut albums, carry this kind of weight. Rick Ellis is a singer-songwriter in the vein of Springsteen and Mellencamp but his style is definately Ellis. The love ballad with an epic story “Cecil Cassandra” kicks this album off just right. Its a powerful story about lost love and it is one hell of a ride.
Every cut on the album carries its own weight. Through Rick’s words you’ll find yourself enjoying the journey as much as he has. You can tell with each word he’s sharing something more than just lyrics. Rick Ellis is opening a window into the life he’s lead.
Produced by Paul Mahern with the likes of Waddy Wachtel and Hutch Hutchinson playing supporting roles, this album is a main course. Pick up a copy of his album and allow yourself to be carried away into the world of Rick Ellis, its one hell of a ride.
