Happy Holiday's everyone! This is my favorite time of year. I wanted to touch base and offer my services to anyone who is having a holiday party this year! Adding a live musician can really enhance the atmosphere and I personally really enjoy the energy that guests bring to such events! My rates are reasonable and I have availabilities left in November and December! So reply to this email if you are interested and be sure to suggest this idea to any friends or family having a holiday celebration!
I also just posted a new video on my YouTube Channel of my girlfriend Isabelle and I covering Damien Rice's song Volcano! Check it out by clicking HERE!
Tomorrow morning I will begin my journey East. I'll be perfoming and recording in Salt Lake City, visiting Chicago and Detroit, and finally returning to Maryland just in time for the summer to kick off!
After some deliberation, I've decided to release a full length album instead of another EP at the end of this month. I've been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to headline and celebrate the release at Ram's Head On Stage in Annapolis, MD on May 30th at 8pm with two fantastic opening acts Nelly's Echo (Baltimore), and Pressing Strings (Annapolis)! This is easily the biggest show of my young music career so far and I'm really excited to perform for you and release the new album Coming Of A.G.E. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased HERE! The new album and new T-shirts will be made available for the first time anywhere, the night of the show!
I look forward to seeing you there and as always appreciate your love and support!
Dear Fans, Friends, Family, and Fellow Artists,
Its been a while since I've checked in and I'm sorry for being out of touch! This adventure to the west coast has had its share of ups and downs, and I've learned a lot, and made some incredible memories and insightful mistakes. Ultimately I've decided to return to Maryland and continue my music career from my home base. I'm grateful for this experience and I'm glad I did it. The truth is that if I'd never scratched the itch to try out west coast living, I would never know if it was right for me. So I look forward to seeing my East Coast family from Baltimore to DC to Philly and expanding in the region. I hope you all embrace me with open arms and I look forward to sharing my music and life with you as we all grow. Finally I'll be releasing a free EP next month to mark my return and build momentum for the overdue full length album Rain or Shine which will resume production this summer!
Wishing You The Best,
P.S. I love you!!
This is an announcement!!!

Austin Ellis, performer and writer of original fan favorites, such as; 22, Birthday Gift, False Alarm and If He Tells You That He Loves You, will be featured in an unforgettable, one-night-only show at Hollywood’s, W Hotel on January 24th, 2012. The show starts at 8:00 PM.
This magical evening will be hosted by the well known, Deep Mix and D. Lee. Special guests of the show will be announced later this week.
Austin Ellis has been captivating his listeners with his thought inspiring songs, collecting a “die-hard” group of dedicated fans from the East Coast to the West. His rich voice, intimate approach to the guitar and soulful, authentic brand of original music keeps bringing them back to comfortable places. Ellis’s self-entitled debut EP has been widely received by his online fans, which has grabbed the attention of music supervisors and Los Angeles producers.
Wielding equal doses of R&B, Rock and Neo Soul, the Latin-American artist earned a degree in Songwriting and Music Business. Influenced by the smooth delivery of John Legend and the laid back, acoustic strumming style of Jack Johnson, Ellis invites his audiences to relax and bask in the warmth of his sound.
The Station Unplugged Showcase, featuring Austin Ellis will be held in the Living Room at the world famous, W Hotel - 6250, Hollywood Blvd, CA. Admission to the showcase is free but seating may be limited.
