Ellis Paul

On the horizon....

Post-Election Thoughts...

Aaaah. The election is over, or almost over, or likely over. Hopefully.

We all are waiting for the dust to settle. But, we were in a dust storm. Like an Oklahoma depression era tsunami hurricane dust storm.

It’s gonna be a long wait, and then a long, long clean up. Everybody grab a broom! We are in it together.

My wish for all of you is a stabilizing, re-energized 2021. The hopefulness of vaccines will be the first steps in music rising from venues, restaurants, churches, and theaters. Imagine! A night out. To be moved, entertained, revitalized.

I long for that long drive through the Midwest. Through the zen beauty of windmill farms, and silos breaking an endless horizon. Of a Chicago skyline rising with its stunning towers above the wheat fields. Open road. Open mind. Open doors.

Next year, I’ll be hosting special events, trips and retreats. There will be a week long vacation to Monhegan Island in Maine. A trip to Ireland in the fall. And the New England Songwriters Retreat over Labor Day weekend. Hopefulness.

And miles of highway rolling beneath my wheels. I can’t wait to see people’s faces in person.

In the meantime! It’s live-stream shows— private shows, corporate shows, school shows and mentoring sessions from home. Six months more of this kind of steady flow and then a combination of both road work and home work for the future. I’m loving these live-stream experiences. It’s been incredible to meet people from around the globe. Thanks for the support and the exchange.

Write me if you’d like to hire me for a session, a private show event for your loved ones, your company, your school.
