Album Notes
Tigers Above, Tigers Below takes listeners on a journey. With heart-felt lyrics, powerful vocals, and strong musicianship, the album marked an important step in Ellis' recording career. The album was recorded in a shotgun house-turned-studio in New Orleans. Produced by Ethan Allen, several talented musicians joined Ellis on the project, including: Erika Luckett (also co-producer), Julie Wolf, Travis McNabb, Rene Coman, and more!

Ellis is a rising star on the folk music circuit, creating a buzz after being voted “Most Wanted to Return” and performing on the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival preview tour. This talented singer, songwriter and guitarist has since been invited back to several première listening rooms including Club Passim, Outpost in the Burbs, Caffe Lena, and P.A.C.E. She has also been asked to open for several established artists such as Patty Larkin, Richard Shindell, Cheryl Wheeler, and Todd Snider.

Known for her vibrant and open-hearted nature and contagious sense of humor, Ellis’ music is described as joyful, unpretentious modern folk with a slight hint of country inspired by her southern roots.

After moving from Texas to Minneapolis at age 16, Ellis got her start singing her own songs at open mics where she quickly dropped her often-mispronounced last name (Bergeron). She joined a rock band in high school while also setting up her own record label to put out her first solo CD Soft Day in 1996. She began touring full-time in 2000 and has independently sold more than 30,000 copies of her five CDs.

Ellis started performing the women’s festival circuit in 2000, with regular performances at the Michigan Women’s Music Festival and recently headlined the National Women’s Music Festival in 2006. She has since made her debut at several folk festivals in 2007, including the Loyalist City Folk Festival (Canada), the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival.

Although she tours nationally more than 130 dates each year, she continues to retain a devoted following in Minneapolis where she was voted Best Musician for five consecutive years and named 2007 Best Musical Artist by readers of the Minnesota Women’s Press. She is also a favorite on college campuses, and students recently nominated her as 2006 Best Female Performer in Campus Activities Magazine.

A CD to play when you need that arm around your shoulder. Geniune and uplifting Ellis offers a positive mirror in which to look at yourself.

Tigers Above Tigers Below
Ellis has a rich voice. She sings from her heart and experience. She can help you put into words things you feel yourself. She has made her guitar a good friend that can truly set the tone of a piece. Hard to believe she is so young.


Great CD!!
I bought this CD without ever hearing Ellis. When I listened to it I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was amazing!! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes mellow folk music.

Tigers .. is a great CD for those rainy sundays when your soul may be weary and your journal is cuddled in your lap. This is one of those albums that stirs your creativity and reflection on life.. Ellis, you are AMAZING! Thank you!


Get this CD people!!!!
Saw Ellis in Homestead and fell in love with her music. This CD is so emotional, the songs ooze out of your cd player and wrap themselves around you. I sleep better knowing there are such talented musicians in the world.


This CD Is Trapped In My CD Player With No Hope of Escape
I really love this cd! I bought it for the title track but was bowled over by the last two songs and now I'm simply crazy about the whole thing.

This is the most amazing CD I own
This is my favorite of Ellis' work. The songs are deep and touching, and they are sung wonderfully.
My favorite song on the disc in "Looking for the Good". It showcases Ellis' amazing voice and versatility in ways that you cannot find in other songs on other discs. Also, "Broken" is a great song, its message can apply in so many ways.
Don't get me wrong, they are all great songs. Those ones are just my favorites. I honestly believe that everyone should own this cd, and that it should be the one you buy first.


honest, folk acoustic sound... speaks to the heart
The emotion in this CD left me breathless. TATB combines ellis' energy, passions, and an impressive display of her maturing talents as an artist. For anyone who's ever felt alone, in love, misunderstood, reflective, or just needed someone to understand them... ellis writes from the heart and every song speaks to the listener. Her honest, folk acoustic sound that speaks to the fans in a voice that is truly her own... she has captured a world and made it her own.
