Ellis was first introduced to music by his mother who often allowed him to sit in on her recording sessions in various music studios at the age of five. His mother not only inspired her son to sing but also supported him throughout his many performances as a young child. At the age of 13, Ellis was presented with his first trumpet while under the direction of middle school band teacher, Mr. Russell Pittman. As his fascination for the music industry grew, the young musician began to take private lessons from famed trumpeter and studio musician, Mr. Melton Mustafa. Ellis has also had the privilege to study under the guidance of Edward’s artist, Dr. Timmey Zachery.
To receive the very best knowledge of the music industry, Ellis attended Norfolk State University for his Bachelors of Music Media in 2011 and Full Sail University for a Masters in Business Entertainment in 2014. After receiving his degrees, the up and coming songwriter made the full commitment to independent music and began recording. Ellis released his debut album "Euphoria" in 2014 creating quite a buzz for himself while expanding his fan base across the east coast. Today, Ellis is traveling the world as an entertainer for Carnival Cruise Lines and is expected to drop his second album, "Call To Battle" in early 2016.
