PRE-ORDER THE DEBUT ALBUM BY NICK ELLIS ON LIMITED EDITION 180-gram HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL
Following the triumphant EP ‘Grace & Danger’ Ellis now presents the final piece in the puzzle: Recorded in one take at the historic Crown Court Room of St George’s Hall, the twelve tracks on ‘Daylight Ghosts’ capture not only Ellis’ sublime live performance, but also the magic of the fabled venue itself, channeling the spirits of those who have passed through its famous walls.
Ellis: “...This music, these stories, have lived themselves into songs. Some are like discarded photographs, found upon the floor. Some, like a strange encounter with a strange old face. Others, like those forgotten people who appear from out of nowhere and go straight back into it. Like Ghosts. Daylight Ghosts...” Whilst difficult to pigeon-hole, Ellis’s timeless music has been described as “A conversation between Elvis Costello and John Martyn” and most recently as 'Liverpool's answer to Michael Chapman'; an especially apt comparison as he will open for Chapman at the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic later this year, as part of a short national tour.
Throughout ‘Daylight Ghosts’ Ellis chronicles tales of the lost, the lonely and the alienated of the modern world; elevating and immortalising the seemingly mundane into something deeper, something beautiful, something with meaning and mystery. Amongst streetscape vignettes and neo-psych-folk instrumental interludes, we are introduced to a host of characters; some of these you might like to share an afternoon with in the park, whilst there are others you may be better off avoiding altogether.
The subjects are often specific to the Liverpool streets where Ellis resides, but the message is universal. The tales and escapades are a microcosm of society as it shifts and as it stands. The world is changing, evolving, for better or for worse. This country alone has transformed dramatically, even since the release of Ellis’ debut EP in April, just a matter of months ago. And so it is now, more than ever, that we need visionaries like Ellis to come to the fore.
