As Ellis White builds his reputation in his home base region and beyond, genre fans seeking fresh sounds are gravitating towards the uniquely democratic structure – where each musician has an alternating lead voice and they cleverly pair two instruments at the same time (sax/trumpet, guitar/sax, guitar/trumpet, sax/keyboard, etc.) to create richly textured lead melodies and harmony lines. 

The diversity is fueled by the unique geographic origins, professional backgrounds, stylistic leanings and the expertise of the musicians that take the stage with founder Ellis White. A native of Maine, Ellis is primarily a self-taught musician aided by studying with prominent guitarist Dr. John Shaffer and other quality instructors over the years. In the past he has played in blues and soft rock bands that have opened for artists like the late Warren Zevon and John Cafferty.
