Wesley Ellis, born from the trailer-park, swamplands of Florida, left home With $150 dollars of tips from work. With a 20 year old cheap guitar, grocery bag suitcases and a 87′ Buick he bought from someone at a Donut shop at 3am, he set off for a better life in the big lights of New York City.

Wesley Ellis, born from the trailer-park, swamplands of Florida, left home With $150 dollars of tips from work. With a 20 year old cheap guitar, grocery bag suitcases and a 87′ Buick he bought from someone at a Donut shop at 3am, he set off for a better life in the big lights of New York City. Fate had other plans, as his 87′ Buick overheated and broke-down many times, including one final time in Charlottesville, VA during a freak hail storm. Seeing this a foreboding sign, he chose to plant his musical roots there instead; bringing together influences of musicians such as Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Ben Harper, Counting Crows as well as the local band Dave Matthews Band. After many attempts to get off the ground through, he found it extremely hard to move up from the local scene without a finished Demo CD.

So Wesley Ellis set out to make his first Demo, “The Shape of Things to Come”. Unfortunately, this too has issues from the start, the only studio that was not someone’s basement in Charlottesville closed down because of economic struggles prior to his first session, and without a solid permanent band it was impossible to play live as an ensemble. “It just seemed that everything was either destined to fail, or make a great story when it succeeded. I was hoping for the later”, says Wesley Ellis. It all came together at the end, with a new name “Broke is the New Black”; when a new recording studio took the place of the last. “The Sound” opened in Charlottesville, Va in August of 2009… and since then Wesley Ellis has been able to find session musicians and a bit of funding to record a full CD.

Skipping the Demo CD altogether. The first 3 songs of the new CD “Broke is the New Black” has been released online as Wesley Ellis is working with “The Sound” currently to finish the CD by June of 2011. Read more on Last.fm.
