What makes rock n roll?
An undefinable energy? The presence of a statement or its interpretation as art?
It’s often easier to say what it’s not; we know it isn’t the Black Eyed Peas. Nor does it include unnaturally groomed pop groups, clad in matching leather outfits, frothing auto-tune laced radio pop.
Rock n roll demands authentic musicianship, unbridled emotional expression and a true commitment to one’s sonic vision. It speaks to all who have suffered and shouts out in defiance against oppression. Rock n roll exists to be witnessed, its performance instantly speaking to humans on a primordial level.
Our album is a picture of motion inviting you to see the source from which it sprang. This source is our show, and our show is what we want to share.

There are many types of talent out there but one of the rarest types out there is pure unfiltered vocal artistry. In Ellen Hinton there is no hiding behind layers of studio processing, there is just pure unfiltered singer – to – listener creativity. Ellen is one part Adele, Sinatra, and Colbie Caillat, her songs offer a world of possibilities to her audience and help lift spirits and refresh the atmosphere. Ellen Hinton should be a staple of anyone easy listening playlist.
