After such a long break, Nick Ellis will be bringing live music to popular Bold Street Venue LEAF, this October.
The venue is a fitting home for the event, not only were Mellowtone the first promoter to work with the Bold Street venue, it’s also where Nick launched his debut solo EP – Grace & Danger – back in 2016.
Nick Ellis is dedicated to the concept of “Song” and “Melody”. Some people call it folk, some just call it good old fashioned song craft. Currently based in Liverpool, Ellis blends streetscape narrative-noir with a classic British acoustic approach. Using a blend of rhythmic attack and finger-quick lucidity, his sound has been described as “a conversation between Elvis Costello and John Martyn.”
Taking place on Thursday 21st October, Nick will be joined by special guests Nina Jones and Beaten Tracks DJs.
Tickets are priced at £10.00 PBF per person, minimum age 18.
Speakers’ Corner is the latest release from Ellis – his fourth in the space of three years – following the streetscape narrative-noir debut of Grace & Danger (April 2016), it’s surrealist-folk follow-up Daylight Ghosts (November 2016) and Adult Fiction (November 2017) “a novel set to music”.
On his songwriting Ellis says: “I see my songs as chapters and scenes. My albums as movies and books. Except, in this film, these stories are true…”
