Built on the foundation of the folk / alt-country I Americana sound that Charles Ellsworth has become known for Cesarea is still at times a departure of sorts. While keeping his lyrical focus on strong vivid story telling Ellsworth opens up musically and explores different areas of the blues, psychedelic, and post punk worlds he has only flirted with in the past. At its core Cesarea is an album about the growth that comes from change.
Charles Ellsworth, the southwest born and raised Brooklyn transplant escaped the harsh NYC winter to return to his roots in Arizona and record his first release since his 2015 Wildcat Chuck Charles EP. Ellsworth teamed up with producer Bob Hoag (Courtney Marie Andrews, The Format, Gin Blossoms) and the result is Cesaréa.
