Hey y'all,

Summer is in full swing down here in Charlottesville, Virginia and the song machine is cranking up.

In the first piece of the good news, my guitar, Guinness, is back from a debilitating injury and I have been playing for hours each session getting reacquainted with it. I'm finishing the touches on songs for a holiday CD, and a slew of new song ideas are emerging for my next album project. I want to have the next batch of songs to feature more acoustic guitar and Guinness will play a major role in that. I plan to have the holiday CD available in November and a new album out sometime before next summer. We are also planning a fundraising campaign-- soon! More on that in later newsletters.

We have a new video for the children's CD, "The Hero in You' and the video features the title track. Adam Moyer, the producer, and his creative team did a great job of putting this together. We filmed at the historic Beacon Theater in Beacon, NY. We hope to have additional videos made for the other songs as well, if you are interested in making one, send it on to us!

The children's CD is doing wonderfully, with a recent GOLD award from the Parent's Choice Foundation, a nice feature on, and even a spot feature in the Mini- Page in 400 American newspapers. If you have any kids or even librarians and teachers in your life, please check the CD out and share it with them. I feel this recording should be in every home, classroom, or library that serves kids between the ages of 5 and 12. Help us make that happen!

Happy to be playing at Club Passim in Cambridge this week-- it will always be home to me. Come say hi if you live in the Boston area...

Lots of festivals and road trips as well this summer and a great teaching gig at the Swanannoa Gathering in Asheville, NC. Hope I see you all out there!

I'm in so much sun screen that I may be invisible for the entire summer.

Best to you!


What better way to kick off your summer then with some great music?

We are THRILLED to unveil Ellis' official new video for the title track off of "The Hero in You"!  This video was shot in NYC and directed by renown director, Adam Moyer.

Adam started in the film business working on films: The Shawshank Redemption, Shindler’s List, Batman Forever, Airforce One and other hit films. He has spent the last eight seasons producing and directing the Discovery Channel series, "American Chopper".  As Co-Executive Producer, Adam has overseen one of the most successful shows in Cable TV history.

Before working on "American Chopper", Adam produced and directed documentary films, commercials and music videos and live concert DVD's including Ellis' DVD "3000 Miles" and Vance Gilbert's DVD, "And Now You See Him". Among the many videos Adam has directed are two Boston bands, The Push Stars and Bang Camaro.

Needless to say - we are lucky to have him on our team, and we LOVE the video he and Ellis have created... we hope you will too!
