In addition to popping by Baeble HQ to stir our hearts with his contemporary, somewhat avant-garde take on classic country, native Texan Robert Ellis also sat under the hot lights fielding a few questions about his unique new album, The Lights From The Chemical Plant. It's a title Robert hopes evokes dissimilar qualities all at once. On one hand, the plant - an actual landmark from his hometown of Lake Jackson, TX - sounds industrial, dirty, and nasty. Yet its ambiance is hazy and beautiful; a duality Ellis captures beautifully between the reels of his recordings. Ellis also takes us through a little bit of his background, the inspirations that trace across his music, and how his sound really came together in a studio in Nashville.
