A polar wind blew through Nashville in January, but we found sanctuary one afternoon in the home of New West recording artist Robert Ellis. The space cowboy himself treated us to a performance of “Bottle Of Wine,” a dark-night-of-the-soul ballad off his upcoming album The Lights From The Chemical Plant.
Ellis performs the song on his piano, a slightly out of tune instrument from 1909 that packs a serious whorehouse vibe. A sad song is always best for winter, and “Bottle Of Wine” fits the bill just perfectly.
