Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. He has won an unprecedented 14 Boston Music Awards, sung at Fenway Park for the Red Sox, The Boston Garden for the Celtics and even had the mayor of Boston, Thomas M. Menino, proclaim it "Ellis Paul Day in Boston" on July 9, 2010 when Ellis celebrated his 20th year in making music. His songs are heard in various commercials, documentaries, TV shows and in the soundtracks of blockbuster films. Director Peter Farrelly has called Ellis Paul "a national treasure."
