Here he turns the lens on himself and the dissolution of his marriage -- the centerpiece of this very intimate, close-to-the-bone album. Strong playing out of producer Jerry Marotta and guest players Bill Dillon and Tony Levin frame the tunes in a highly supportive way. Highlights include "Did I Ever Know You?," "She Loves a Girl," "Seven," "Take Me Down," "The World Ain't Slowin' Down," "Angel in Manhattan" and the title track.

    Ellis is a master song writer!

    No one can tell a story more vividly than Ellis Paul! He has a song for every kind of emotion and situation! His music has a way of picking you up and inspiring you. I have shared this album with all of my friends and they fall instantly in love with him, as I'm sure you will when you listen to it. His melodies will stay in your head (in a good way!) and his poetry will inspire you! No matter your musical preference, you'll love Ellis!
