Album Notes
ellen cherry is a singer, songwriter, musician, designer, artist, producer, recording engineer, and human.

Mixing equal parts of pathos and humor throughout her songs, ellen cherry is mysterious and powerful on stage and her banter gives audiences a peek into a whimsical, curious mind. She seamlessly fuses her love of History, Poetry, and Literature with the Usual Suspects of Love, Loss, and Despair, with a powerful, commanding voice and skill on both guitar and piano.

Baltimore based songwriter and performer, ellen cherry (lowercase letters intentional!) has recorded and released original music steadily (and independently) since 1997. In 2012, ellen released her newest and most intimate work yet, a piano-based album entitled "Please Don't Sell the Piano", produced by fellow Batlimorean and songwriter, Caleb Stine . In addition to her personal compositions, ellen is working with the Maryland Historical Society on new music she will create, inspired by their 4-year-long Civil War exhibit, was a Strathmore Artist-in-Residence in 2012 and a 2011 Baker Artist Award winner (including the Semmes G. Walsh special music prize). In 2009, ellen composed an original score for Nana Project's shadow puppet piece, "Alzonzo's Lullaby", inspired by the true story of a circus train wreck south of Chicago, in 1918. The piece was awarded one of the most prestigious puppetry awards, the UNIMA-USA Citation of Excellence. In 2012, ellen premiered another original composition to compliment Nana Projects' newest work, "Eureka!". The team has been commissioned for another original work by the Strathmore, inspired by the life and diary of Opal Whiteley, to debut in 2013. With fellow Baltimore based jazz musician/writer Sandy Asirvatham, ellen is co-producing (and is the visual alchemist for the live performance) "Mobtown Moon", a genre-defying new interpretation of Pink Floyd's classic, "Dark Side of the Moon", which will debut in 2013, and features some of Baltimore's finest working musicians from all musical corners.
ellen also wrote, performed and recorded an original song commissioned by the FOX Networks that was nominated for an Emmy in 2010. She has been awarded Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Awards for Vocal Performance (2007) and Music Composition (2009) and founded her own studio and label, Wrong Size Shoes, in 2004.
