Singer/songwriter Robert Ellis performs in Kirby Center’s Chandelier Lobby in Wilkes-Barre on June 15
From a press release:
Robert Ellis, one of the music industry’s bright, young singer/songwriters, today announced a new album and a coinciding tour that will stop by the F.M. Kirby Center’s “Live from the Chandelier Lobby” concert series in Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Ellis will be joined by special guest Tom Brosseau.
Tickets, which are $15 in advance or $20 the day of the show, plus fees, are on sale now and can be purchased at the Kirby Center box office (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre), online at kirbycenter.org, and by phone at 570-826-1100.
Ellis is the kind of songwriter who only comes along once in a great while. His self-released debut LP, “The Great Rearranger,” was sold at his concerts, but Ellis found a higher level of success when American Songwriter named his second album, “Photographs,” as one of the Top 50 albums of 2011.
That paved the way for his 2014 release, the critically-acclaimed “The Lights from the Chemical Plant,” which was produced with great care and precision by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Norah Jones) and recorded at Eric Masse’s Casino studio in East Nashville for New West Records.
Ellis’ highly-anticipated fourth studio album is due in records stores on June 3, less than two weeks before his record release tour makes a one-night-only stop in Wilkes-Barre.
Brosseau, a North Dakota-born, Los Angeles-based musician, was introduced to Ellis earlier this year while the latter was performing with the Watkins Family Hour, led by Sara and Sean Watkins, at the Cayamo Music Festival.
