A troubadour, a singer/songwriter, a folky, and a storyteller --all are fair labels for this artist, but they do not quite suffice. However, the tattoo of Woody Guthrie worn proudly on his arm is a good starting place from which to grasp Ellis Paul, for it is from the Woody Guthrie tradition that he hails, and Maine as well. Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and James Taylor are also listed among his influences, and their spirits seem to occasionally grace his work. With an acoustic guitar in hand, he weaves intimate, provocative, and romantic tales of lives that were obviously witnessed by a most talented voyeur. Based in Massachusetts, Paul has been called the quintessential Boston songwriter more than a few times and has garnered the recognition and awards to back up that claim, including a shelf full of Boston Music Awards. Since coming onto the scene in 1993 with his independent debut, “Say Something,” Paul hasn't slowed or weakened as a performer or a writer. Spending two-thirds of most years on the road has helped him perfect both crafts, with a lot of practice on-stage and a lot of people whose stories he retells in song. In fact, his 1994 album “Stories” proved enchanting enough to secure him a deal with Rounder Records and a national following of dedicated fans. Many albums have followed; his latest, “The Storyteller’s Suitcase” is number 20. His songs have also been heard in movies, movies that you just might have seen, such as “Me, Myself and Irene” (starring Jim Carrey), “Shallow Hal" (starring Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow) and “Hall Pass” (starring Owen Wilson.)
