John Ellis is a stalwart on the Northern Jazz Scene. Regularly utilised by well-know artists such as Tom Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lily Allen, John Squire (Stone Roses) and others as well as being a founder member of The Cinematic Orchestra. 

Ellis is a dynamic artist who might be conveniently described as a cross between Django Bates and Jools Holland, and who is by repute a mover and a shaker in the creative music of his home city. One of Snake Davis side-men. John is a pianist with an appeal all his own.

His recent performances have centred around the piano trio working with a collection of songs ranging from standards to Irish Folk, Prince & The Stone Roses and originals all with a unique jazz/blues/soul idiosyncratic improvised twist akin to Nina Simone.

John Ellis is the secret ingredient behind the Cinematic Orchestra, Lily Allen and Corinne Bailey Rae's sound. His piano and organ skill have featured on many recordings and in his own "Big Bang".
