Robert Ellis, Live At The 2014 Americana Music Awards

Last year was a great one for Americana music, from both the longtime pillars of the form and its emerging young vanguard. Robert Ellis falls squarely into the latter group, as evidenced by this performance of "Only Lies" from 2014's The Lights From The Chemical Plant.

The tune includes one line, in particular, that stands as a lesson, if not a mantra, for the modern age: "Just because a thing's convenient / Well, that doesn't make it true." It's that sort of craftsmanship that will likely earn Ellis a place among the pillars.
