Our Man in the Field

Think of Our Man In The Field – AKA Alexander Ellis – as an independent correspondent, with his works dispatches from his travels. So classically crafted are Ellis’ songs that you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve heard Our Man In The Field somewhere before. He and his brilliant band of pedal steel, guitar, banjo, upright bass and drums (with fine harmony backing vocals) take inspiration from the alt- Americana and Caledonian soul stylings of Van Morrison, Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Wilco. His own sound is indefinable yet familiar- its introspective, intimate and deeply soulful style stands comfortably alongside modern-day artists Ray LaMontagne, Damien Rice, Foy Vance and Joe Purdy. He was also announced the winner of Emerging Act of the year and runner up for Album of the Year and Act of the Year at the 2020 Americana UK Awards.
