John Ellis

John Ellis is a pianist/singer from the north of England. His musicianship has been utilised by well known artists such as Tom Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lily Allen, John Squire (Stone Roses) and others as well as being a founder member of The Cinematic Orchestra and contributing heavily to the albums "Everyday" and "Man With The Movie Camera". In his solo work John had a successful highly reviewed 12-piece band "The John Ellis Big Bang" which toured England between 1995 - 2001. Since then performances have centred around the piano trio working with a collection of songs ranging from standards to Irish folk, Prince & The Stone Roses and originals all with a unique jazz/ blues/soul idiosyncratic improvised twist akin to Nina Simone. John has written scores for various theatre productions including a National Theatre production based on the novel "A Clockwork Orange". He currently has a working studio in Manchester called Limefield and has produced a number of successful albums.
