The Day I Left The Furnace - February 2007


Feeling a bit camera shy


Battery Point is a small suburban/rural neighborhood just outside of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. It is also where Dennis Ellsworth was born and raised. Having lived in Prince Edward Island all his life, aside from a brief relocation to Edmonton, Alberta in 1997, Dennis picked up and moved to Toronto, Ontario in September, 2001 where he continues to reside.

In late 2004 Dennis put a stop to his band, The Rude Mechanicals, and began cracking his mind in the seclusion of his lofty bedroom. When he came out at the end of his dark days, his head, heart, and computer were overwhelmed with new songs and demos.

His first sketches of Battery Point were a result of meeting his current fancy in Central Park during a Canada Day concert in the summer of 2004. An EP was recorded in his bedroom as a gift to the little beauty, and Dennis has yet to look back. It was there and then Dennis decided to start passing these demos around in search of a band. By late 2005 this band was beginning to take shape. After a few hiccups, the band is on the brink of finishing its debut record. Recorded at Wellesley Sound and Woodstock Nace Sonic Temple, by Justin Nace throughout 2006, the album showcases the most mature writing Dennis has produced to date.

Been clear cuttin’ for years and years…and finally, a path worth taking.
