Rory has performed on some of the world’s biggest stages, alongside Richie Havens, Robert Cray, Canned Heat, Seth Lakeman and many others. Seven acclaimed albums, seven countries of extensive touring, and hundreds of festivals later,
Rory is looking forward to concreting his return to his homeland, and catching up with his Aussie Fans on the road.
“His is one of the most distinctive voices in Australian folk and country music, rich and full and emotive. "
Jeff Glorfeld: The Melbourne Age, 2015
“Rory Ellis is one of those singer/songwriters, like Leonard Cohen, who makes the hairs on your arms stand up by simply opening his mouth and uttering a few throaty words.”
Brett Callwood: Acoustic Magazine UK
“Rory Ellis is one of the great storytellers on the Australian roots scene. A big man with a huge voice, with a trove of outstanding material at his disposal, he immerses us into his world... His huge, deep voice is a remarkable instrument of rich and raw emotion.
It is that voice, the absolute quality of the musicianship and incomparable song writing talent that really sets him apart as an artist.”
Mick Griffin: Live Review, Bendigo Weekly
