Lightbulb Brett Ellis

Anybody know anything new about Brett Ellis, that wrote or co-wrote Big Sky on Building the Machine?

I saw his website, but it hasn't been updated in 2 years, no way to contact him. I wondered if he was recording now.

That song slays me, I'd like to see what else he has.

It's quite a coincidence that you bring Brett Ellis up, Roger!
I was going through my CD shelf recently somehow trying to find any means to put more discs in it ( don't ask... ) when I stumbled across the Ellis III album, which I hadn't listened to in... 2 years, probably, maybe even longer.
Then I was wondering what Brett Ellis might be up to, since he is a fine guitar player.
So now there's two of us.

Anybody?

Cheers,
Christian

Hey Chris:

Here's a crazy question: what did Brett sound like? Did he have a lot of stuff like Big Sky, or anything like it? I mean, other well written songs, or is he a monster technical player? I see he plays a Strat, that's a big plus. LOL
I'm about to get a 335 clone called Tradition...at least I'm going to try one out in a couple of days...a semi-hollowbody.

Ellis 3 Album Sampler

Searched the Forum a bit and found that only a snippet of "Growing Wise" has ever been posted.
When you put Ellis CD in the search box you get a couple of threads, with Ellis only it's a bit too much imo.

So here's a 10 minute album sampler to show what the Ellis III disc sounds like, especially the guitar intros and stuff. ( Roger!)
And yes, that definitely sounds like a Strat

It says in the booklet that guitarist Brett Ellis has also released two CDs with classical guitar compositions by Fernando Sor.

Cheers,
Christian
