Album Notes
It’s been four years since the band released their last album, Color of Compassion EP in 2008. Ellison now returns with a new album. Brighter Than Sunlight will be the bands fourth studio album, and has been in the works for over three years. The sound of Ellison continues to mature with each album the band releases. Brighter Than Sunlight is set to be release summer of 2012.

The sound of Ellison
n has been described as having some of the trademarks of “Emo,” but with a more graceful, grown-up edge. With great honor, the band has been compared to the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Copeland, and Cartel. Ellison’s energetic blend of indie pop with straightforward rock is sure to deliver a powerful emotional punch to the indie pop scene. Their debut full length CD Say Goodnight, Sleep Alone hit stores in August 2006 thanks to the faith and hard work of Carbon Copy Media, the record label started by J.T. Woodruff, lead singer of Hawthorne Heights.

Ellison went the do-it-yourself route with Say Goodnight, Sleep Alone by recording everything in singer Josh Hill’s basement. The band included three songs on the album witch were taken from their first 2005 album, Indecisive and Halfhearted EP. One of Woodruff’s many reasons for signing the guys was that they could do everything themselves, and extremely professionally at that. Woodruff says, “I signed Ellison because of their songs. It’s plain and simple: they write good music and I feel that people need to hear it!”

On September 25th, 2007 a brand new song by Ellison called “Let Your Guard Down” mixed by famed producer David Bendeth was released on the Punk The Clock Vol. 3 compilation alongside Jack’s Mannequin, The Almost, The Starting Line and more. Ellison has a whole new arsenal of songs to compile for their sophomore record (on a yet to be determined label). Until that record comes out Ellison will continue to tour the country and share their passion for music with newfound fans.

The song “Let Your Guard Down” would also be featured on the bands third studio album, Color Of Compassion. Independent of any record company on June 3, 2008, Ellison was already looking ahead. Planning to release the album on their own in 2008, and continuing to tour the country and sharing their passion for music with newfound fans.
