Ellie is the daughter of award-winning producer Brown Bannister and the wife of the frontman of Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. If you've yet to hear her much-praised 'As Sure As The Sun' album and were intrigued by Cross Rhythms' article about this exceptionally gifted acoustic singer/songwriter, this EP, available as a leave-a-tip download from Noisetrade, is a good place to familiarise yourself. The tracks here come from her two EPs 'With You Now' and 'Magnolia' plus tracks originally released on the Drew Holcomb & The Neighbous albums 'Chasing Someday' and 'Million Miles Away'. Her music is truly inspiring with the joyous "Marvelous Light", the Sheryl Crow-esque "Your Love", the Psalm 23-inspired "The Valley" and the praiseworthy "Anchor Of Hope" all registering. One reviewer has described Ellie's voice as having "raspy earthiness and earnest sweetness" - a perfect description for a singer who will surely become a fixture on the Christian music scene for many years to come.
