ELLEN KAYE BIO
Entrepreneur/Nightclub Singer Ellen Kaye’s singing career took off when she was booked at the original Monkey Bar, playing there every Friday and Saturday night for two years. She’s performed in some of New York City’s most prestigious rooms, including Town Hall. She’s even performed at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops.
From sadness to euphoria, from Springsteen’s “Two Faces Have I” to Annie Lennox’s “Why” Ellen makes the classics contemporary while indulging her Tom Waits addiction. She revels in Dar Williams and Rickie Lee Jones, luxuriates in Annie Lennox, commiserates with Randy Newman’s worldview, all the while getting lost in the blues. Ellen has an original take on the way the world works, permeating it all with her humor.
Kaye has appeared regularly at noted jazz club The Iridium, the Metropolitan Room and other venues in and around NYC.
Kaye’s recordings are Ice Wine – songs for Christmas and dark winter nights, 3AM…the dogs, the milkman & me, 2AM, and a single of Dar Williams’s When I Was a Boy.
PAUL ROSE BIO
Paul Rose is without doubt one of the most unique and talented guitarists in the world today. Fundamentally a rock guitarist, his extraordinary playing style touches on blues, country, jazz and folk, blended together into a style that is entirely his own. Never a gig goes by where audience members don’t comment that Paul is the best guitarist they’ve seen and heard.
Born in Newcastle, north east England in July 1966, Paul’s natural gift shone through at an early age. He was already being hailed as one of the best guitarists in the region by the age of 16, playing regularly on the Newcastle live scene with the most popular local bands of the day.
Since then Paul has continued to go from strength to strength, having released a total of 12 solo albums to date, selling worldwide to an ever increasing circle of fans. Coupled with his stunning live shows built on 25 years of tough performing experience, Paul is now gaining the worldwide recognition he deserves.
Paul has been noticed along the way by some pretty high profile guitar movers and shakers, with Rory Gallagher calling Paul a “Hot Player” and Seymour Duncan naming Paul in his top 5 players (that was 2nd between Jeff Beck 1st & Roy Buchanan as 3rd). As well as many of the major guitar mags writing rave articles about Paul’s playing, both in album and concert reviews.
