Traveling Traveling Traveling Guess where I am


Hi Friends— Can you guess my location in the photo? Can you name the people I am standing with? I’m time traveling. State line crossing. History chasing. I’m back in the performance groove and loving it.
The shows have been filling up very nicely and I’m feeling like the Great Pandemic times are behind us. And my time exploring with friends and musicians as I go has been even more amazing. Thank you for coming out! But even more so— I’m back in the writing groove too!
There’s always a post-album downside for me. Post Recording Syndrome. Where I’m over it. The last record, 55, is done as well as all of it’s promotional activities. Now, a new one has to begin. It feels like with the coming of Spring, the desire to write has FINALLY returned and I’ve already started working on a few ideas! If you’re on my Patreon page, you’ll hear them recorded first as vocal/guitar demos. I already sent one last week! This wonderful subscription channel that has nearly 900 members releases weekly music, livestreams performances, and discussions around my music, writing, and art. It generously supports the challenges of my work both personally and financially. It allows me to bring opening artists and sidemen to come along on my road trips, as well as allowing me to take some necessary downtime— one weekend a month when I am home with loved ones as well as creating, writing, drawing, streaming. It’s helped bring joy to my active work on the road and my creative downtime. Sign up!
Here is the Skinny on All Things Ellis Paul
I’m touring! Lots of shows below, as well as my annual New England Songwriters Retreat for anyone who writes songs— join us! And check out next year’s music cruise to Amsterdam and the Norwegian Fjords with special guest Don Conoscenti and more. 44 rooms are already booked, Keep them coming!
New wheels! I’m in the shopping section of car places all over the US in search of the perfect car for my vagabond lifestyle. Because I travel I can track them down from here to California. Leaning on a CRV Hybrid… Any ideas?
