Ellis Paul's New Album "55" Fundraiser
Over the years, I’ve been amazed at how fans of my music have gathered around me. They have supported my shows, my recordings, my art. But this circling of wagons has never seemed so clear and humbling to me as when the pandemic happened and stole away my - and so many musicians' - livelihoods. Thanks for bringing me to the other side.
This new album - “55” - was written during that time. I had a landmark birthday in 2020. That, and the stillness that the pandemic brought, helped me feel a greater gratitude for life and art, and renewed my spirit for writing and recording! Many of these songs reference the events that happened during the past two-plus years. But love songs and songs of gratitude have started to seep into my writing as well. These songs are now ready to be recorded. Thank you for helping me get back to the highway... as I return to shows across the US, Canada and Europe.
I’ve never made enough of an income to single-handedly record, manufacture, distribute, and promote my music. I’ve always had a label, or more recently, have been fortunate to step to the well of kindness from followers of my music. And here I am again.
I find myself standing at the same well that I’ve been drinking from during the course of the pandemic...and once again I'm asking for more from you all. I promise to give you more as well. I’m going to record as many songs as I can for the new album. I don’t know how many songs will make the final cut, but it will at be least fifteen, and maybe as many as twenty. I just want them all to be great. And if they don’t make the cut, I will see that you get them digitally. One song for sure that has already made the cut is the title track - “55”. You'll hear me sing it in the video above.
Thanks for your support throughout these years!
