      What was your favorite part of the performance? it's always fun to see Ellis Paul play and talk about his inspirations, the evolution of particular songs and even the grand arc of his career in general. for me this performance held an extra punch of joy since it came as a total surprise at the tail end of an otherwise disappointing day. it totally changed my mood. (here's a question i don't know how to answer: if we've "paid the ticket" to see a Tiny Living Room Concert, is there a way for us to re-watch the broadcast? i missed part of it when i had to run answer a phone call in the other room, but i can't seem to find a link to a recording.)

      It was so personal. It was like we were sitting in a living room with Paul and he was having a conversation with us.

Ellis Paul's songwriting credentials are unassailable. They are as genuine as the fifteen Boston Music Awards he has earned, as indelible as the tattoo of Woody Guthrie that adorns his arm, and as authentic as the musical roots he draws upon with every note he plays. At the invitation of Woody's daughter, Ellis wrote a song with Woody's unpublished lyrics and was given an honorary citizenship to Okemah, OK. Woody's hometown. Ellis grew up in a potato farming family in Maine, earned a track scholarship to Boston College and got his musical start at Boston's open-mic scene while studying to be a social worker. He emerged out of the Boston music scene during a time when contemporary folk was beginning to come into the mainstream. It was a time and a place that nurtured some of the country's top singer/songwriters like, Martin Sexton, Patty Griffin and Dar Williams. Ellis was one of its more memorable exponents who earned his place on the national map with 20+ years of playing 150 to 200 shows annually. He has 19 releases, a documentary film, a book of poems/short stories, and a children's book project to his credit. Ellis' songs have been featured on Hollywood soundtracks in films such as: Me, Myself & Irene, Shallow Hal and Hall Pass, as well TV shows and documentary films. He has performed from the stages from the Newport Folk Festival, Carnegie Hall, and clubs, coffeehouses all over the world. This year, Ellis fan funded his 19th release "Chasing Beauty", produced by Sugarland's Kristian Bush. He was awarded a Honorary Degree from the University of Maine and inducted into the Maine Music Hall of Fame.
