    It Is What It Is
"It’s timeless music and these are timeless themes. Such is the quality of Ellis’s songcraft, that this feels familiar – classic Americana – and yet new at the same time.
Look out for the new album, ‘The Company of Strangers’, which promises to be an impressive debut. We may be hearing a lot more in the future from our correspondent out there in the field, regaling us with tales of his travels." - Americana UK
Think of Our Man In The Field – AKA Alexander Ellis – as an independent correspondent, with his works dispatches from his travels. So classically crafted are Ellis’ songs that you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve heard Our Man In The Field somewhere before. He and his brilliant band of pedal steel, guitar, banjo, upright bass and drums (with fine harmony backing vocals) take inspiration from the alt-Americana and Caledonian soul stylings of Van Morrison, Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Ryan Adams and Wilco. His own sound is indefinable yet familiar- its introspective, intimate and deeply soulful style stands comfortably alongside modern day artists Ray LaMontagne, Damien Rice, Foy Vance and Joe Purdy.
