ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NEW RECORD FROM CELEBRATED SONGWRITER ELLIS PAUL
FIVE SONGS CO-WRITTEN BY SUGARLAND’S KRISTIAN BUSH
“Ellis Paul is one of Boston’s best-ever songwriting exports…”—The Boston Globe

The Day After Everything Changed, the new record from acclaimed singer-songwriter Ellis Paul, will be released January 12. Since emerging onto the Boston folk scene over 18 years ago, Paul’s music has been consistently recognized and celebrated by both critics and fans alike. The new record reinforces this acclaim and is sure to cement his place as one of America’s most beloved songwriters. Paul is currently on tour in support of the album.

Recorded at Sorted Noise studio in Nashville, the 15-song album was produced by Thad Beaty and Jason Collum and features five songs co-written by Paul’s longtime friend and collaborator, Sugarland’s Kristian Bush. Of Paul, Bush notes, “Ellis has a voice that is so powerful that you know who it is the second he comes through your radio. His music and songs are a new birth in American sound that makes me want to go see concerts again.”

The songs on the record reflect Paul’s commitment to storytelling, exemplified in the title track “The Day After Everything Changed.” Described by Paul himself, the song “is about people who are at a crossroads in their life; a hurricane Katrina victim wondering what direction his life would take after the storm hit; a person doing the long drive home after being laid off at work.” Paul continues, “I have committed myself to writing more conversationally. I like songs to be cultural events, little ones, that somehow tell me what it feels like to be living here on this planet in this country at this time. I want to hear about people’s joys and woes and apply them to my own. You can’t fake real life stories. When you’re faking it—it’s obvious. As long as the writing feels real—it works in any genre.”

The Day After Everything Changed is Paul’s first studio album in five years and proves that his backing support is stronger than ever. For the making of the album Paul turned to his fiercely dedicated fan base and, in total, raised over $100,000 in audience funding. Inspired by this outpouring of support, the entire team behind the album stepped up to make sure the end result would make the fans proud of participating.

Over the past two decades Paul has garnered numerous honors including 13 Boston Music Awards. He has also performed alongside countless acclaimed musicians, including Patty Griffin, John Mayer, Arlo Guthrie, Dar Williams and Jonatha Brooke. Of Paul, Woody Guthrie’s daughter Nora praises, “A singer songwriter is only as good as the times he reflects. Wise, tender, brilliant and biting, Ellis is one of our best human compasses, marking in melodies and poems where we’ve been and where we might go if we so choose to. Personally Ellis, I’m goin’ where you’re goin’!”
