Ernest Ellis have been playing together for about three years now and it's been recently decided that they're sick of being asked whether Ernest Ellis is a solo thing or a band so they have decided to slightly alter the name to Ernest Ellis & The Panamas. What started out as a solo project has very much developed into a band, and with a new single out and a record to follow later in 2011 it seems like the perfect time to make that clear to everybody.
Up until this point Ernest Ellis & The Panamas have been labelled a Triple J next crop artist, released a critically acclaimed debut album, sold out their own headlining tour, and toured with the likes of Florence and The Machine, Jamie T, and The Jezebels. It has all brought them up to this point and the recording of their second LP due for release later this year.
The band's sophomore album 'Kings Canyon' was released in September 2011.
