ELLIS PAUL is an American folk singer-songwriter and a key figure in what has become known as the Boston school of songwriting, a literate, provocative, and urbanely romantic folk-pop style that helped ignite the folk revival of the 1990s and includes national artists such as Shawn Colvin, John Gorka, Susan Werner, Bill Morrissey, and Dar Williams. Paul has released over 19 albums and received 14 Boston Music Awards. He continues playing close to 200 dates annually on the folk circuit. His songs have appeared on more than 50 compilation CDs, alongside artists such as Patty Larkin, Patty Griffin, Greg Brown and Cheryl Wheeler. He has made nearly 40 guest appearances on the albums of artists including Lori McKenna, David Wilcox and Mark Erelli and his pop music songs have appeared in movies and on television.
In a review for the Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange, Roberta Schwartz said, "Ellis Paul is one of the best singer/songwriters of his generation. His finely honed songs tell stories filled with images that sparkle like jewels. His is a poet's heart and a romantic's soul. He is an optimist who believes in people and possibilities; few are as smart, as literate and as poetic as Paul. I cannot think of another artist on the acoustic music scene who is better loved by fans, or more respected by his contemporaries."
