Product Notes

Like a river gently changing course, this CD covers ground from the traditional sound of MEMORY MACHINE, to the rockin' country sound of MAMA GOTTA HIT IT, to the powerful, rangy ballad, ONE WOMAN. You may hear influences of Ray Price or Roy Orbison (including a three octave vocal range) - or similarities to Ricky Van Shelton, but Gordon Ellis does not sound like them, or anyone else, for that matter. He is simply a singer-songwriter expressing his creations through his own voice, with power and passion - reaching out to anyone who can relate, like the working men and women in I'M STILL HERE, and the ones that love seems to have left behind in GOD BLESS THE HEARTS. Anyone who has ever experienced unrequited love knows the angst expressed in ONE WOMAN, and anyone who has ever been alone on a moonlit summer night will recognize the longing in TONIGHT THERE'S A LOVERS' MOON. There are also lighthearted numbers, like the rocking STORM CHASER and the tongue-in-cheek title cut. Gordon grew up in New York City--not exactly the country music capital of the world. Early influences included the vocal styles of Roy Orbison and Elvis. His first band in high school, The Fortunes, did all rock and folk cover tunes. While attending the University of Oklahoma, where he received his B.A. in Psychology, he was drawn to the honesty and simplicity of country music, playing as part of a duo around campus, occasionally throwing in an original song. After college, he moved to Northern California, where he sometimes sang for tips on the streets of San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf, or in coffeehouses, and later, performed his own material with his band, GORDON ELLIS and the All Night Ramblers. Eventually, Gordon moved to Nashville, where he currently resides, performing at notable Music City writers' clubs like the Bluebird Cafe, Douglas Corner Cafe, the Hall Of Fame Lounge, and the Broken Spoke. Gordon Ellis is not your typical country singer - he does not sound like the acts currently on country radio - but this is definitely country music. It's about real people, real feelings, real life. Hey, that's what country is supposed to be about, isn't it?
