Jordon Ellis

Jordon was born and raised in Frankfort, KY...his homeland. He has also lived in Nashville, TN and Austin, TX.

These endeavors range from nearly 2,000 shows as a live drummer to session drumming, band tracking, live mixing, music mixing, film mixing, production, sound design, and audio restoration.

Aside from touring and recording with Ben Sollee for the past 8 years, Ellis has recorded in studio and/or performed on stage alongside artists such as: Lonnie Holley, Margo Valiante, Stirfry Musette, Geron Hoy, Scott Moore, Justin Paul Lewis, Jeri Katherine Howell, Luke Reynolds, Alana Rocklin, Phoebe Hunt, Jon Estes, The Downtown County Band, Mother Falcon, David Wax Museum, Time For Three, Tommy Womack, Peter Rowan, Steve Forbert, Mariana Bell, Marshall Ruffin, Jacob Duncan, Kevin Ratterman, Duane Lundy, The Louisville Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Louisville Ballet, and the John Jorgenson Quintet, among others.

Ellis keeps access to a recording studio in central KY, stocked with drums old and new, guitars, basses, amps, keys, nice mics and pres, and all the latest Pro Tools and plugin stuff. He enjoys being a partner, a father, a friend, a lover of food, and a user of coffee.
