He began performing as 'Eyes Like Lions' early in 2005, playing in his hometown of Lake Jackson, Texas.The self-released LP The Great Rearranger was sold at shows, but Ellis found a higher level of success when American Songwriter magazine named his second album, Photographs, one of the top 50 albums of 2011.Robert Ellis is a New West Records recording artist.Ellis has toured with Alabama Shakes, Old Crow Medicine Show and the Old 97's. Originally from Texas, in 2012, Ellis relocated from Austin, Texas to Nashville, Tennessee to work on his third album, The Lights from the Chemical Plant, in Eric Masse's Casino recording studio under the direction of album producer Jacquire King. Ellis has said that this album, influenced by his hometown, Lake Jackson, Texas, incorporates more pop influences.Only the truly exceptional artists, with the right mix of confidence and wit - Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Waits—dare to scrap the template that first won them acclaim and basically start over, with a new, often sideways approach to their craft. That’s exactly what Texas native Robert Ellis has done with his latest album, Texas Piano Man.
