about the band

Ellis in Transit are a British-Canadian indie rock band from Hamilton, Canada with a powerful sound and a passion for rock and roll. The band was originally formed as an acoustic duo in Scotland, where the two performed for a year before making their way to Canada. Grown out of a collective love for the golden age of rock and roll, Ellis in Transit branched into a full band and began playing shows all across Ontario, their debut live show being on the Pier Stage at Burlington’s 2018 Sound of Music Festival. Once described as a young band “dripping with nostalgia”, Ellis in Transit have been likened to a wide variety of musical artists including Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys and Jefferson Airplane.   

In June 2019, Ellis in Transit recorded their debut 5 track self-titled EP at Catherine North Studios. Their first single “Thousand Feet Deep” attracted the attention of local and international radio stations alike, prompting the band’s feature on Y108 Hamilton’s Emerging Artist Showcase. Ellis in Transit currently have three singles from their EP available on all streaming platforms and physical copies of the EP in its entirety can be purchased at their live shows or on their website at www.ellisintransit.com.
