Elbo Room on Feb 10th

I’ve got an hour on the downstairs stage at the Elbo Room. Also, very excited to have my friend Matt Smaligan joining me on all-things-percussion. First time these songs have seen drums and we are gearing up to record at the end of the month so this set is a perfect first showing. There will be lights and there will be weird electronics, and of course there will be some cello. Hope to see you out!

I’ll be sharing the bill with Ranjani, Ovadya and Jory Avner. All incredible song writers coming from different musical places. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door. Here is a link:

Show starts at 8p. I’ll be on at 11p.

Alex Ellsworth and Mortar at Cafe Mustache

This September, I'll be splitting a bill with Mortar - a kiiiiler jazz quintet project lead by composer/trombone player Chris Shuttleworth.  I'll play a solo set from The Silver Hour and then join the band for a line up of Chris' music.  The gig is at the quirky and lovable, Cafe Mustache.  Its a regular hang of mine but this will be my first time on stage.  Would love to see you out! 

Check out Mortar's music on Soundcloud:

Opening set @NorthBar w/ Barry Fontenot

I'll be playing a solo set of songs from the upcoming The Silver Hour-EP.  Lots of improvised looping on this one, since I've got a good chunk of time to fill on stage.  There will be lights and drinks and all the rest.

So happy to be opening for Barry Fontenot and crew!

Solo Set at Lilly's this Saturday

I'll be splitting the bill with Henry True and Hippie Johnny at Lilly's Bar on Lincoln Ave, this Saturday from 8-11p.   

If you can make it, go up to that balcony - best view in the house, for sure.  The couches up front are nice too though.  Would be great to see you there!

Feel free to shoot me a message if you can make it.  I can let you know where I am in the line up and all.
