UAB's Alys Stephens Center & BMR : An Evening with Robert Ellis

UAB's Alys Stephens Center & BMR : An Evening with Robert Ellis

Robert Ellis is the kind of songwriter who only comes along once in a great while. With his first two albums, a promise was made. With his new record, The Lights from the Chemical Plant, that promise has been delivered and fully realized. The music, like the artist, refuses to accept the confines of a box, and burns white-hot from the inside out. But what seems even more striking about this record, this musician, even at a first glance, is that feeling of unyielding authenticity. http://www.groundcontroltouring.com/artists/robert-ellis
