Ellis Paul with Radoslav Lorković

  • This event has passed.

Ellis Paul doesn’t just write songs; he’s a guitar-carrying reporter who covers the human condition  and details the hopes, loves, losses of those he observes, turning their stories into luminous pieces of  music that get under your skin and into your bloodstream. And much like the artists who have influenced  him, everyone from Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon to the singer-songwriter who is undoubtedly  his greatest inspiration, Woody Guthrie, Paul weaves deeply personal experiences with social issues and  renders them as provocative works that are as timely as they are timeless. Born and raised in Maine, Paul  attended Boston College on a track scholarship and in the evenings became a fixture on the city’s open  mic circuit. After winning a Boston Acoustic Underground songwriter competition, he caught the ear of  folk luminary Bill Morrissey, who produced his indie album Say Something in 1993. This led to a seven album contract with Rounder Records and the 1994 album, Stories

His songs have appeared in several blockbuster films (Me, Myself, and Irene; Shallow Hal, Hall Pass) and  have been covered by award winning country artists (Sugarland, Kristian Bush, Jack Ingram). Through a  steady succession of albums of his own – a remarkable 23 releases so far – and a constant touring  presence around the world, Paul’s audience has grown into a loyal legion of fans. Along the way, he has  picked up an impressive number of awards including the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Award, 15 Boston  Music Awards, An Honorary Doctorate from the University of Maine, the 2019 International Acoustic  Music Awards Artist of the Year and most recently his album, The Storyteller’s Suitcase, was named the  2019 NERFA Album of the Year. 

His new album “55” touches on the necessity of gratitude in a difficult era of the pandemic and divided  political stances on his own imprint, Rosella Records.
