Falcon Ridge stars to roost at Night Eagle (2007)
"Standing in between those extremes is Ellis, strumming away and trying to make sense of it all -- for herself and for us."
Catching Up With Ellis (2006)
"That image has stayed with me, as it sums up who Ellis, the artist and person, is — open-hearted, generous, down to earth, and genuinely interested in connecting with people through her music. That, in combination with her gorgeous smile, beautiful blue eyes, charming personality and obvious talent, is exactly why audiences — lesbian, straight, young and old — adore her. Ferociously."
Evidence of Ellis: There’s more to the indie rocker than you might think (2006)
"Ellis has been compared with Ani DiFranco, Suzanne Vega, Edie Brickell, and the Indigo Girls, but those comparisons only approximate what she’s all about. She is funny and smart and has a way with lyrics that makes critics take notice."
Fearless: Authenticity, independence set Ellis free (2006)
"Fans love her because her universal themes resonate with them, but she also involves them in her music (a few years ago she asked eight fans to co-produce one of her albums), and critics laud her for her Ani DiFranco-meets-Edie Brickell folk sound."
Fan favorite fundamentally folk: Introspection key to artist's style, success (2006)
"And visible she is. Nominated in Campus Activities Magazine for "Best Female Artist 2006," Ellis seems to be riding the right wave."

Evidence of Joy CD review (2005)
"This CD is full of charismatic lyrics, funny banter and passionate guitar playing. Displaying a humorous side to her writing, Ellis keeps the listener laughing as she entertains them with her light-hearted stories of troubled love, reaching out to others and incidents of memory loss in parking lots."
