Singer-songwriter Ellis Paul offers a stirring, well-researched tribute to a wide array of American heroes, crafting vivid musical profiles of men and women whose words, actions, inventions and art made a profound difference to countless lives.” Parents’ Choice Foundation, Gold Award
“The Hero In You” is Ellis Paul’s 17th album, which has inspired a children’s book published by the Albert Whitman & Company, a prestigious publisher of children’s books. Inspired by the educational music in schoolhouse rock, Ellis recorded “The Hero In You” to educate the minds of children on America’s important influencers. He sings about the likes of heroes such as Thomas Edison, Rosa Parks, Woody Guthrie, Rachel Carson, and Jackie Robinson in this 14-song collection. Ellis has crafted the sound of “The Hero In You” so that each song engages listeners of all ages. “These people did amazing things, but they can also inspire young people today to go out and do something out of the ordinary to become the heroes of their own lives,” explains Paul.
Ellis Paul has traveled the American folk circuit for twenty five years, stepping on stage at every major festival and venue. He has played the Woody Guthrie Festival for twenty years and serves on the festival’s Advisory Board. He also has twenty albums to his credit, had won numerous songwriter awards, has had numerous songs in movies and television, covers by Grammy winners, and has played over 5,000 shows. And he has a Woody Guthrie tattoo. (But don’t tell his mother.)
