Ernest Ellis

‘Bad Blood’ is the first single from Dew Process’ newest signing, Ernest Ellis. It’s a little slice of what is to come for this talented musician from Sydney. Ernest Ellis draws a lot of inspiration from the beat poet who took the famous pancake tour of America, Jack Kerouac. That sense of exploration and adventure, and the waywardness of the characters permeates its way through both his music and lyricism.
