Robert Ellis chats to Bob Harris

Duration: 08:08

Joining Bob Harris is singer/songwriter Robert Ellis whose debut album, Photographs, has drawn comparisons with the late great Gram Parsons.

Writing about him last year, The Guardian newspaper said of the Houston native: "Robert Ellis is a hippie throwback but he also moves between periods and worlds with aplomb - at a recent party...he and his band, according to one onlooker, 'deconstructed old bluegrass songs and borrowed as much from Radiohead as George Jones'".

Robert makes his UK live debut supporting Richard Thompson on a nationwide tour later in February.
