Ellis in the Washington Post & USA Today

Ellis in The Washington Post!

Since his early start in Boston coffeehouses and open-mic nights, Ellis Paul has held his own in the thriving folk scene. The key? His lyrics, which are as detailed and well-conceived as poetry. Paul's lyrics don't bludgeon home the point the way most folk music does — instead they dance around the heart of the song, revealing it gracefully.

Ingram has 'Big Dreams' for album

Jack Ingram hasn't chosen a title for his new album, but he knows it'll come out March 17. "There's a song I haven't recorded yet called Big Dreams and High Hopes," says the Texas-based singer/songwriter. "In my mind, that's the working title. But it's not the title yet."

Ingram's 2007 album, This Is It, was the 38-year-old singer's commercial breakthrough, with four top 20 country hits, including the chart-topping Measure of a Man. The new album's first single, That's a Man, is currently in the top 25 of USA TODAY's country airplay chart.

Ingram has written several new songs with Radney Foster, who is producing the album along with Jeremy Stover. The album also will include a cover of Boston singer/songwriter Ellis Paul's The World Ain't Slowin' Down. "It's by far his most popular song," Ingram says. "It'll be fun for me to expose people to a fantastic song from an artist who's had a 20-year career of being a very successful folk artist."
