Last night we went to The Pheonix (Where I met Christina almost 3 years ago!) and they had The Ellis Collective playing with two other bands. The girl on the violin was the highlight, reminding Sam and I of Fourplay. It would have been good if there were more violin solos, also the songs on their site just don’t do the violin justice.
I heart covers. No wait, I heart covers more than everyone in the world put together. YouTube is awesome for finding covers, it can be quite patchy, but basically everyone votes down the worst ones so you only view the gold.
Johnny from Australia.

No one is as awesome as Hallelujah Jesus himself though.
