Robert Ellis’s Captivating “The Lights From The Chemical Plant”

Read our review of Robert Ellis’ The Lights From The Chemical Plant



By Rob Dickens

I’ve been listening to Robert Ellis‘ new album The Lights From The Chemical Plant (out now on New West Records) and it is simply brilliant.  The sensitivity and emotion of his lyrics.  His voice a brilliant timbre and a range that has surprised me on this record.  The production is an example of how good some arrangements, production and mixing can be (I hear a lot of records that are nowhere near the standard reached here) – produced by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings Of Leon) – hat’s off to you!!

One of the best albums I’ve heard this year.

The record has been nominated for Best Album and Ellis as Best Artist in the 2014 Americana Awards.

Here’s an audio stream of one of my favourite tracks on the album “Chemical Plant”.



Robert has toured Australia twice.  I’ve seen him perform live three times and expect that he will be front and centre in Nashville this September for the Americana Awards – a chance to see this impressive performer again.  I notice there’s a gap in his touring schedule for just such an appearance.
