Jezebel Music presents Our Man in the Field

Please note this is an 18+ event

Our Man In The Field is UK singer/songwriter and actor Alex Ellis, with assistance from a band that includes Henry Senior (pedal steel, dobro), Greg Bishop (drums, harmonies), Raul Biancardi (synth) and Luke Ydstie (bass). Plying a winning combination of indie-folk and Americana with significant soulful country vibes that nods to the likes of Ray LaMontagne, Damien Rice, Wilco, Ryan Adams and Lambchop, OMITF issued a well received debut album, ‘The Company Of Strangers’, in 2020 and wowed audiences promoting it when guesting for the likes of The Delines, playing festival dates and touring in their own right.

Our Man In The Field was the result of an epiphany. In 2014, Ellis found himself in hospital under observation for intense abdominal pains. Worryingly, a tumour was discovered, a similar growth having accounted for his father’s death in his 40s. As Ellis awaited treatment, he reflected on his dad’s life – hard work in a job he didn’t like and unable to enjoy the fruits of his labour – and realised he needed to make some changes to avoid the same fate.

A brand new album entitled ‘Gold On The Horizon’, produced by Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse, My Morning Jacket, Beth Orton, Roseanne Cash) and recorded in Portland, Oregon is out in November 2023.
