  • Description

    Kate Ellis is an Americana singer-songwriter born in Louisiana, raised in New York and now based in London, England - Kate is excited to announce the release of her Records; "a collection of songs that came out of a process of soul searching". Kate Ellis started writing songs when she decided to put down her law degree and pick up a guitar. This led to her critically acclaimed debut album Carve Me Out, released in 2017. Maverick Magazine called it: "wryly reflective, sweetly melodic, touchingly compassionate and warm-hearted." RnR Magazine described it as: "delicate, melodic music with the ring of truth to her words and that most elusive quality, soul." While Americana UK gave it 8/10 saying: "Quite simply a superb debut album and one that announces the arrival of a genuine talent."

    Now Kate Ellis is releasing her second album Spirals which came out of a process of soul searching that followed: "to quiet the thought storms in my head and find my balance in the world," says Kate.

    The album was produced by John Reynolds who has recorded and produced some of the most iconic artists in the music world, including Sinéad O'Connor, the Indigo Girls, Daniel Lanois, Brian Eno, Belinda Carlisle, The Cranberries, and Damian Dempsey. It was recorded in his New Ayr Studios in London and features a stellar line-up of musicians including a trio from Sinéad O'Connor's band - bass player Clare Kenny, guitarist Graham Kearns and John Reynolds himself on drums – plus Chris Hillman on guitars and mandolin, Thomas Collison on keyboards (both American Music Association UK instrumentalists of the year), acclaimed Irish singer Pauline Scanlon on backing vocals, Joseph Paxton on violin as well as Kate's longtime collaborator and partner Andy Hobsbawm.

    "A class act, one to watch – a voice that has lived a life and has stories to tell." BAYLEN LEONARD

    "Brand new yet classically timeless – think Nanci Griffith with a modern twist." LYRIC MAGAZINE

    "She's been likened to Alison Krauss, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Gillian Welch. We couldn't agree more." SONGWRITING MAGAZINE
