Raised in working class East Bentleigh, to a boxing gym in Dandenong, labourer, factory worker, brushes with the underworld as a doorman in the most salubrious outer suburban beer temples, even his time working at the Sacred Heart Mission, has shaped the character of one of Australia’s finest songwriters.

Raised to revere the Hanks, Cash, Willie, Waylon, blues and folk greats, Americana was the obvious genre choice. His career began in 1989, but things livened up when his first solo release “Ride” rocked the media in 2000.

His path traverses the globe; Australia, New Zealand, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Denmark, performing alongside greats like Richie Havens, Robert Cray, Charlie Musselwhite, Canned Heat. His journeys’ embrace a multitude of venues and festivals, including Port Fairy Folk AU, National Folk AU, Shetland UK, Isle Of Wight UK, Maryport Blues UK, Americana International UK, Larmer Tree UK, Celle Festival Germany, Castel St Pietro Blues Italy.

Every twist and turn toward his Americana leanings, always had a great story lurking in the background. Always the primary inspiration. Gifted with a soul-wrenching voice praised by media worldwide, he’s experienced every word delivered.

The future is bright, songs keep coming, roads still un-travelled and his wit grows with every mile. Rory is committed to bringing his take on life and the stories of so many to every possible corner.

“Rory Ellis is one of those singer/songwriters, like Leonard Cohen, who makes the hairs on your arms stand up by simply opening his mouth and uttering a few throaty words.”
