"Ben Ellis #2 in the 10 french bands that will make 2013"


There is no oil in France but there are really great melodies. Which is what the former singer of band Brooklyn never stops proving, since the dawn of the scene called "baby rockers". There was good in that scene but mostly bad. And there was this dude, who as a solo artist, now prepares his comeback as a four track EP. Without pressure, but with the help of big shots (Alex Gopher is producing).

Into The Light EP - (2013, to be released)



Brooklyn's power pop album, Clandestine, was surely one of the most inspiring for the young French pop generation, and even farther afield, as they took it on tour throughout Europe, Japan and the US.The band split, as bands do, and songwriter and frontman Ben left for a two-year break in New York, searching for inspiration and befriending other artists in the city that doesn't sleep. For Ben, melody remains the key, as it had already been with his band Brooklyn. Naturally tunes started popping up there as he started to forge his own personal style and manner.

Back in Paris with some great memories and a suitcase full of new songs, Ben started putting together his new live band under the name of Ben Ellis.
Their first two concerts in December were packed, and their third gig was aired on national radio.

Having found his new sound, he went to record his first EP, Into The Light, with Alex Gopher, one of the founders of French Touch (Super Discount). The result is four great songs for the dance floor. Early Phoenix and Rapture come to mind.
