Artist Bio

Maintaining his pattern of writing, recording and releasing an album a year, Dennis Ellsworth has always followed his calling. In between records, Dennis has travelled extensively singing songs characterized by a kind of dark optimism, influenced by acts such as Roy Orbison, Neil Diamond and Kris Kristofferson.

He has toured Canada extensively, made inroads into the US and built a substantial following in the UK and throughout Europe. His most recent tour also marked his debut in The Netherlands, appearing at the legendary Taverne De Waag, one of Simon and Garfunkel’s European venue stops.

In total he’s released six records, all of which were recorded live in a house or studio; solo albums include Chesterfield Dweller of the Year (2009), the Strange Boat EP (2011), Dusk Dreams (2012) and Hazy Sunshine (2013). Two more albums were also released through his side project, Haunted Hearts.

His most recent solo album, “Romantic As It Gets”, was recorded in Athens, Georgia, with producer David Barbe. David’s credits include previous work with R.E.M, and also with K.d. Lang. An intimate album featuring Dennis’s haunting voice, “Romantic As It Gets” includes many standout tracks such as “Mercy Doll”, the song that originally attracted Cymba Music president Vincent Degiorgio to Dennis’s work.

Constantly collaborating, Dennis is currently readying his newest release "Everyone Needs to Chill Out", a duet record completed in partnership with Kinley Dowling of "Hey Rosetta" fame.

Dennis is always writing, whether for himself or for the artists he co-writes with. Wherever the journey takes him, he is certain to provide questions, answers and more in whatever he writes.
