About Ellison 9

Fronted by Derrick Devine on guitar/vocals, Dublin-based rock band ellison9 derived their name from (amongst other things) a care unit in an American hospital for people with serious heart defects.

Counting acts such as Calexico, Nick Cave, Elliott Smith and dEUS amongst their influences, ellison9's sound places quiet, gently plucked guitar numbers alongside louder, angrier moments. Dark, intelligent lyrics and melodies combine with off-kilter guitar lines, bass, drums, violins and even the occasional blast from an orchestral trumpet.

Since forming in late 2003, the band has slowly built up loyal following, playing memorable gigs to full house in top live venues in Dublin and across the country.

In May 2004 the band released their debut E.P. 'Go Down' to wide-spread critical acclaim. Songs from the record received considerable airplay from the national radio stations as well as being play listed on a number of local stations around the country."
