John Ellis To Release Second Solo Album 'Rural'

Jun 19 2012

South African singer/songwriter and former Tree63 frontman John Ellis is about to release his second solo album 'Rural'. The 14-track album of all new acoustic material from John was recorded in Knysna, South Africa at the end of 2011.

The album features world-renowned percussionist and drummer-extraordinaire, Barry van Zyl (Johnny Clegg Band), and will soon be available to download from JohnEllis.co.za and on CD at John's live shows.

In 2010 John released his debut SAMA-nominated solo album 'Come Out Fighting'. Discussing that first solo release, John told LTTM in a 2010 interview, "Lyrically, I'm exploring themes that had no place in Tree63's world. I'm singing about South Africa and its politics, about depression and hope, there's a lot of wry comedy and a fair bit of ranting there. Musically, a lot more passion, excitement and inventiveness than those last few Tree63 records."
