Now on the road for his first tour, Charles Ellsworth is among the new breed of artists who define their own genre with his story told through music. Raised in the mountains of Northeastern Arizona, this close proximity to nature and open spaces is felt in his musical style and lyrics. As a fan of the old west, stories of simple justice and love are told in a fashion which brings to mind a campfire and hope for a better tomorrow. Often dark, his music is complex in the simplicity of each message he brings to life in song. Charles Ellsworth is the sage of his generation, channeling the voices and beliefs of a time not so long ago.
