Folklore presents… Nick Ellis + support

NICK ELLIS is dedicated to the concept of “Song” and “Melody”. Some people call it folk, some just call it good old fashioned songcraft. Currently based in Liverpool, Ellis blends streetscape narrative-noir with a classic British acoustic approach. Using a blend of rhythmic attack and finger-quick lucidity, his sound has been described as “a conversation between Elvis Costello and John Martyn.”

On his songwriting Ellis says: “I see my songs as chapters and scenes. My albums as movies and books. Except, in this film, these stories are true…”

“Fascinating”
Whispering Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

“His guitar style stands out as much as the songwriting”
Dave Monks, BBC Introducing / Radio Merseyside

“Wonderful”
Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music

“Ellis is a brilliant songwriter, with total disregard for the genre boundaries that can so often restrict acoustic artists. Ellis brings forth song after song of cohesively chill-provoking material that spans from blues, folk and country yet continuously remains in Nick Ellis’ unique style.”
Zach Jones, Getintothis

“Nick Ellis carries the song above and beyond the traditional, propelling it into the realms of a psyche soundscape”
Bido Lito

“One of Liverpool’s finest”
Peter Guy, Get Into This

“Hauntingly captivating, Nick Ellis has the gift many could only dream of”
Lauren Jones, The Music Manual

“Sounding like the sun looks from the top of a hazy Hope Street on a summer afternoon”
Alan O’Hare, Liverpool Etc

“Whatever accolades Ellis receives in the future; they will be thoroughly and richly deserved”
Graham Holland, Liverpool Acoustic
