A native of Savannah, GA and now living in Los Angeles, Tawny Ellis traveled back to the South to record her newest EP, Ghosts of the Low Country. Recorded at the renowned FAME Studios and produced by Rick Hall, The sounds on Ghosts of the Low Country are as soulful as the region and bring to life the aspects of music and song indicative not only of Tawny Ellis and Gio Loria, but of the very landscape of Muscle Shoals.
From throaty to wistful, Ellis is in control of her voice and able to pull on her Southern roots at will. Guitar Magazine described her voice as “…the sort of voice one could make a meal of, in the vein of Neko Case or Ray LaMontagne—not to mention country singers from years, if not ages, past.” Besides the songwriting and vocals, Ellis contributes lap steel guitar to the record. She picked it up 4 years ago after watching longtime neighbor and friend Daniel Lanois play. Accompanying Ellis is Gio Loria on guitar, guitar player Sean Dunn and drummer Patrick Ferguson from the Athens band, Five Eight, and Peter Hamilton on bass.
Ghosts of the Low Country is her 6th recording and 2nd EP. It contains 2 original songs and 2 covers, and will release on November 6th, 2015.
