The project was born in a random late-night conversation between singer Chris Ellis and guitarist Edis Mano in 2016.
In Switzerland, the members of the Ellis Mano Band are not unlike the Wrecking Crew or the Funk Brothers; top flight studio musicians and elites in the bigger-than-you'd-think Swiss music scene. But as they spent years supporting other artists, the members never got much time to make music of their own.
The project was born in a random late-night conversation between singer Chris Ellis and guitarist Edis Mano in 2016. In various vocal groups, Chris Ellis was a regular on Swiss and German television and radio and on the summer open air concert scene. Edis Mano was a celebrity in his own right in the Balkans, where he filled stadiums as a youth, before backing all the top names in Switzerland. The two discovered that they share a love of American blues and Southern rock and hatched a plan to do a project of their own.
They reached out to drummer Nico Looser, who had been serving for years in the band of Switzerland's top late night TV show and touring as a backing musician for top Swiss pop artists. He also played on Bob Dylan protÃ©gÃ©e and band alumnus Scarlet Rivera's album 'Journey With An Angel' (on which Dylan also appeared) and toured with her for two years. Top session bassist Severin Graf, known in Switzerland as 'Mr. Groove,' also came on board, and the Ellis Mano Band was complete.
