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. Nora Guthrie Hes become a staple at the Newport Folk Festival, played Carnegie hall, and venues from Alaska to Miami, Paris and London. In addition to his 19 albums released on the Rounder and Black Wolf record labels, his music has appeared on dozens of distinguished compilations. A Film/DVD entitled 3000 Miles -- part concert film, part documentary, part instructional video -- provides a further prospective on both the man and his music. Hes also released a pair of childrens albums, earning him honors from the Parents Choice Foundation for both. His latest, "The Hero In You" has been turned into a picture book, detailing the lives of great American heroes. These people did amazing things, but they can also inspire young people today to go out and do something out of the ordinary to become the heroes of their own lives, explains Paul. Ellis' literate, evocative and insightful writings are further showcased in a book of poetry and short stories entitled Notes from the Road," already in it's third pressing. Happily, his music has been shared with a wider audience as well, through commercials, documentaries, TV shows and in the soundtracks of several blockbuster films, among them three by the Farrelly Brothers -- Hall Pass (starring Owen Wilson and Alyssa Milano), Me, Myself, & Irene (starring Jim Carrey) and Shallow Hal (starring Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow). Peter Farrelly summed up the sentiments of all those who have come to know and appreciate Pauls music by referring to him as a national treasure.
