Needle Drop: Jack Ellis, “The Storm”

Welsh singer-songwriter Jack Ellis has released his heartrending single “The Storm” and it certainly doesn’t lack any lustre as Ellis seems to wear his heart on his sleeve at all times.

After playing in bands for several years, Jack took the decision to go solo in 2014 in order to focus on his songwriting and develop his own distinctive sound. The opportunity to play bass, guitar, piano, and sing has allowed Jack to stretch his creative muscles and, with the success of previous singles “Pocket of Lint” and “Stepping Stones,” it is clear that Jack’s music is making an impact.

Held together beautifully by Jack’s wonderful guitar playing and emotive vocals, “The Storm” tackles themes of love and loss as snapshots of our life strip us bare and afraid to love again. Jack was influenced by Jeff Buckley and REM and has absorbed their unerring ability to write and produce relatable yet emotional music.

“The Storm” is out now via District South Records.
