about

"...Where there is grace and there is danger, upon collision, only beauty remains..."
An Anonymous Architect's last words. 1847

Recorded in a single late night session at the historic Crown Court Room of St. George's Hall, Liverpool, the eight tracks on Grace & Danger capture not only Ellis’ sublime live performance, but also the magic of the fabled room itself, channeling the spirits of those who have passed through its infamous walls.

Ellis is dedicated to the concept of “Song” and “Melody”. Some people call it folk, some just call it good old fashioned song craft. Using a blend of rhythmic attack and finger-quick lucidity, his sound has been described as “a conversation between Elvis Costello and John Martyn.”

"One of Liverpool's finest"
Peter Guy, Getintothis

"A more than accomplished piece of work, stong and confident in its own skin"
Paul Fitzgerald, Bido Lito

"Hauntingly captivating, Nick Ellis has the gift many could only dream of"
Lauren Jones, The Music Manual

"Sounding like the sun looks from the top of a hazy Hope Street on a summer afternoon"
Alan O'Hare, Liverpool Etc

"The subtle craft of menace hangs underneath each wonderfully played out song"
Ian D Hall, Liverpool Sound & Vision
