Ellis Paul, a folk musician born Paul Plissey in Aroostook County, Maine, was a chief architect of what has become known as the Boston school of songwriting, an urbane, literate folk-pop style that helped ignite the folk revival of the 1990s. Critics have praised him for a charismatic, personally authentic performance style that has influenced other folk-pop musicians. While remaining among the most pop-friendly of today's singer-songwriters with songs that have appeared in movies and TV, he has bridged the gulf between the modern folk sound and the populist traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger more successfully than many of his songwriting peers.
Personal note: I have seen Ellis play live many a time, and each and every one have been blown away. This man is poetry embodied in music, implanted in flesh. Whyever miss this?
