Hannah Ellis Exhibits Why She’s On-The-Rise in Nashville with “Wine Nation”   – IndiePulse Music Journal


Possibly I’ve been dwelling in a cave, however I hadn’t heard of Hannah Ellis till encountering her new single “Wine Nation”. Take into account myself suitably chastised. Her new single is a masterclass in fashionable nation songwriting giving followers of the style precisely what they anticipate from one of the best and all that rather more. It’s as a result of, greater than the rest, it comes from the center. She hits all of the anticipated marks, and he or she checks the entire ordinary bins, however she additionally shows an clever grasp of precisely what an excellent nation music is and even throws some straight-up rock into the combo to boost the minimize’s taste.

She’s a well-rounded fashionable artist. It isn’t everybody who can capitalize on an excellent music with a music video that really reinforces, quite than detracts, from the discharge. It’s virtually meta in the best way the video for “Wine Nation” depicts Ellis strolling into an nameless tavern, setting down on the bar with a glass of wine, and arising with the thought for the video. It’s a gorgeously filmed assortment of photographs from her sharing wine along with her mates in attire and different fancy apparel, Ellis strolling by means of a winery sporting one other much more lovely costume, and enjoyable on a truck tailgate in informal put on. It closes with viewers going again to the tavern and Ellis leaving telling somebody over the cellphone what an excellent concept she has for the music’s video.   The music is nicely definitely worth the concept. Ellis kicks out the footlights with a barnstormer, holding again solely lengthy sufficient to offer us a barely restrained intro, earlier than hitting the primary verse with the sort of verve you gained’t quickly neglect.

She expenses by means of every of the music’s strains with a gradual and warranted presence and brings the home down with the music’s towering refrain. It’s a no-nonsense observe as nicely, coming in underneath the three-minute mark, and hitting its pinnacle with a short however searing and extremely musical guitar solo.   The rising Curb Data star co-wrote the music along with her husband Nick Wayne and producer Clint Lagerberg. Lagerberg’s manufacturing reveals he’s an impressive collaborator for Ellis’ work as he infuses it with the type of sonic pressure that makes it simple, but by no means overwhelming. He is aware of the place the main focus ought to be. Ellis’ voice is the center and soul of the music, inhabiting each second she’s in your ear, and the encircling instrumentation serves her nicely every step of the best way.   Hannah Ellis has made a convert of me with “Wine Nation” and, as a longtime nation music fan, I’ll be making it some extent to take heed to something she places out going ahead.

She’s a rising star, however I feel it gained’t be lengthy earlier than you possibly can take away “rising” from the equation and acknowledge her newfound standing. Hannah Ellis is right here to remain, and the approaching years promise to be one hell of a trip. It is best to hop on board and roll along with her throughout each fun-filled mile.
