PRESENTED BY STEPHANIE ROBALINO
Ulrich Ellison was born and raised in Graz, Austria, though his ancestral roots go back to Ireland. After paying his dues in the rich Viennese music scene, a prestigious jazz scholarship enables him to settle in one of America's musical hot spots -- Austin TX. While working at his MM at UT's jazz department he wins three of the acclaimed Downbeat student awards. The diversity of the local scene ranging from blues, salsa, rock, indie to singer/songwriter turns out to be the perfect playground for developing a unique personal style. Ellison's music is based in the blues rock tradition, with psychedelic and celtic elements. So far he has released three albums under his own name. His band, the "Ulrich Ellison Trio" has been on two European Tours. He has been a featured soloist of the Austin Pink Floyd show "Guess Who's Pink" and the Austin Pops Orchestra. His sideman credits include Texas blues man Preacher Keen, country rocker John Evans and grammy-nominated songstress Abra Moore.
