W. Ellington Felton
FEATURING:
W. Ellington Felton, vocals
Other musicians, TBA

W. Ellington Felton is the son of jazz pianist Hilton Felton Jr., music is in his veins, Its tempting to describe W. Ellington Felton with slashes: Hes a singer/ poet/ actor/emcee. Ellington knows that poems often make the best songs. His soul rhapsodies paint vivid images that engage, and sometimes unnerve listeners. And of course, he writes lots and lots of stories about love. Rather than the sappy, clich -ridden variety, Ellingtons songs address the complexities of love in real life.



Having performed on the Lollapalooza tour and at the Apollo Theater as a teenager, Ellington has shared the stage with Eric Roberson, Raheem Devaughn and Meshell Ndegocello . He quickly gained a following on Washingtons poetry circuit with his confessional lyrics, quirky pitch, and spontaneous style. He has also shared the stage with his mentor UK Soul legend Omar.

When hes not making music, Ellington commands the spotlight as a classically trained actor. He studied theater for four years at Carnegie Mellon University. He starred in the critically acclaimed hip-hop play Rhyme Deferred, performed at the Kennedy Center, the National Black Theater Festival, and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Ellington also graced the silver screen in Breakfast at Bens directed by Chuck Wilson. In 2005 Felton was casted as the lead in "Multitudes of Mercies' that aired on BET worldwide. You can see him currently starring in Babylon Central directed by Eric Hilton of Thievary Corperation and ESL MUSIC. He also showed his comedic writing chops as a guest performer and writer on Chris Rocks Never Scared LP.
