Summer’s kick-starting off on the right note- specifically with Robert Ellis’ dreamy country tunes, a little blue grass feel, and a whole lot of acousticly awesome tracks. The thing that immediately drew me to his music was his track “Givin’ In”- one listen to that lament-worthy intro and I was about to role play in a moth to a flame scenario.
Though that particular track is slightly on the slower side, it’s got the whole beer (or in my case, chardonnay) in hand scenario, sitting on a porch, trying to freeze time so summer comes to a standstill.
Those posting Craigslist ads for something a little lighter and more upbeat never fear- his tracks “Good Intentions” and “Train Roll On” both have some relaxing but upbeat elements to keep you entertained when you’ve gotten yourself irrevocably involved in a little summer sun-soaked afternoon.
Pretty much if I were planning a kickback with close friends and several of my closest acquaintances I’d be immediately asking the likes of Robert Ellis, The Stone Foxes, and Dirty Sweet to RSVP yes to the evite. The tres awesome ménages of music would perfect the perfect soundtrack to any Summer sun day.
So pour yourself a glass of your fave picked poison and get to listening! Post Script- since we all know it’s hard to arrange a facebook event and get everyone you want, throw caution to the wind and make your own summer soiree with Robert Ellis- he’s on tour right now and you can catch him at a city near you!
