Former Houstonian Robert Ellis deserves the praise and attention he’s been getting. His New West Records releases are both excellent (as is his previous work), and he continues to progress as an artist and gain new fans with each new show (while retaining a sense of humor). Ellis returns to Houston to play Free Press Summer Festival this weekend (June 6-7, 2015) at NRG Park.
Here are some videos to get you ready for his sets:
