Our Man In the Field

 

"Think Ray LaMontagne meets Foy Vance, mixed in with Joe Purdy. Honestly, we can’t recommend this guy enough." - Amazing Radio.

"Love Your Work" - Tom Robinson BBC Introducing/6Music.

"I'm not trying to change the world, just the next three and a half minutes" - Our Man In The Field.

Entierly original but with hints of something from the past you could be forgiven for thinking you've heard Our Man The Field before.  Amongst the many influences; folk revival, 70's singer songwriters, southern rock, 90's guitar bands and modern day folk his own sound is undefinable but familiar, sitting somewhere in the space between Dylan and Van Morrison and has been compared to modern day artists such as Ray LaMontagne, Foy Vance and Joe Purdy.
 
Think of Our Man In The Field - AKA Alexander Ellis - as an independent correspondent and his songs as dispatches from his life as an outsider.  He believes that we can all feel like outsiders which is perhaps why his performances feel so intensely personal yet cathartic, like an off the record admission from you to yourself.
