Video: The Loar Presents Robert Ellis Performing "TV Song"

There’s no doubt that Robert Ellis’ latest release, The Lights From the Chemical Plant has been creating quite a buzz since its release on February 11.

Produced by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings Of Leon), Ellis’ 2nd album, The Lights From The Chemical Plant, continues his journey into folk music he began 3 years ago.

The songs on the new record, which range from the majestic string-adorned title track to noir pop rock and somber confessionals, both show Ellis’ growth and the various sides of this multidimensional songwriter.

The folks at The Loar were lucky enough to have this master songwriter stop in and had a chance to get his live performance on camera.

Here he is performing the cleverly written, “TV Song,” live from The Loar studio. He’s playing his modified The Loar LH-300 hand-carved archtop acoustic. Nice!

Ellis is currently on tour supporting the album, so be sure the check him out at one of these dates near you!
