Description

Robert Ellis is a changed man on Texas Piano Man. The 11-song set was co-produced by Ellis and Niles City Sound (Leon Bridges) in Fort Worth, Texas, and is largely comprised of songs written by Ellis – an accomplished guitarist – on grand piano. Texas Piano Man follows Ellis’ critically acclaimed 2016 self-titled LP which was named Album of the Year by multiple outlets including NPR Music, Rolling Stone Country, American Songwriter, among others.

A wild and spirited album, the grandiose Texas Piano Man presentation – vocals that soar, pumping piano vamps that call to mind Leon Russell and Elton John — finds an intriguing bedfellow with lyrical and thematic content that are disarming for their sincerity. Ellis has always composed sharp introspective lyrics about himself and the world. That hasn’t altered, albeit his music has become more outwardly sophisticated. A great set.
