for coming to SCIENCE FAIR!
The Nashville Scene said: "R. Ellis Orrall is the slightly abbreviated
nom d'artiste of singer/songwriter/producer Robert Ellis Orrall, the
man behind Infinity Cat Recordings and proud papa of the brothers JEFF
… the Brotherhood. As if that weren't enough, Ellis is also a painter
of skewed autobiographical narratives that combine naïve renderings
with keen observations that are at once confessional and absurd.
This latest show at Estel Gallery riffs on the staging of an elementary
school science fair, and through Ellis' skewed doodlings, we learn that
all white mice always die, most really expensive food is French and
that it's fun and easy to make wine out of grape juice. While many songwriters
are satisfied just to be clever, Ellis' work is shot through with
a genuine zaniness that should make this show a delight." Thank
you very much to the wonderful Estel Gallery,
