ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“On The Horizon” and “Thank You Los Angeles” are the first singles lifted off Matt Ellis’ new, 5th album, due in October 2014. Recorded and mixed at Wavelab in Tucson, Az, the recording shows a new, tougher sound to Ellis and recalls his early rock roots.

In December 2013, Ellis and his band drove east to Tucson and recorded 13 tracks in 4 days. Produced by Matt, the live band tracks were engineered by Chris Schultz and Craig Schumacher (Neko Case, Calexico). In January, Ellis returned home to L.A. to complete the recording, teaming up with Nick Luca (Calexico, John Doe). The pair set up in home studios adding vocals, keyboards and additional guitars, before Matt returned to Tucson to mix the album with Craig Schumacher.

The result is a lose classic rock feel, with tinges of Americana and Folk. Ellis’ trademark voice is in fine form and the songs have an extra level of detail, but the long list of guest musicians is gone.

The band Matt put together to promote his last full length, “Births, Deaths & Marriages” (2010), is still with him, and he was inspired to build this album around them.

For the best part of 2013, Matt was presenting unfinished songs to Josh Norton (Guitar), Fern Sanchez (Drums), Tim Walker (Pedal Steel) and Grant Fitzpatrick (Bass). The group would jam on songs for days, letting them develop naturally, in a relaxed environment, the approach the band took to the recording sessions too.

Stay tuned for further release dates and gig listings via Matt’s website.
