Ellis Paul is a critically-acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet, and troubadour originally hailing from a potato farming family in northern Maine. He is the recipient of thirteen Boston Music Awards, second only to multi-platinum act, Aerosmith. Over the course of fifteen years, Ellis Paul has built a vast catalog of music which weds striking poetic imagery and philosophical introspection with hook-laden melodies.

Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. He helped create a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk rock style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 90's.

His charismatic, personally authentic performance style has influenced a generation of artists away from the artifice of pop, and closer towards the realness of folk. Though he remains among the most pop-friendly of today's singer-songwriters - his songs regularly appear in hit movie and TV soundtracks - he has bridged the gulf between the modern folk sound and the populist traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger more successfully than perhaps any of his songwriting peers.

“Vox Concert Series is an oasis for singer/songwriters in a society that moves so quickly that we overlook some amazing musicians. It is not the fault of the listener, of course, because we are so bombarded by information in the age of technology. Fortunately there are gems like Brian Sauer that seek out and manicure a list of great performers to entertain the sweet folk of Wisconsin. Because of the Vox Concert Series a Los Angeles based artist like me gets exposed to the wonderful Midwest, and gives us a genuine and open place to play our music. ”
