Old movie and ‘found’ footage help Tawny Ellis tell the story on this deeply personal song. Ellis collaborated with Ted Russell Kamp, the bass player for Shooter Jennings, to write ‘Deep End of Love’ and it was co-produced by musician/composer, Jesse Siebenberg (Lukas Nelson). Ellis says of the song: “In the making of the video I realized that I was going further with my story. The song is about addiction, to love, to old patterns, to a person, maybe drugs and drinking too much but more about the addiction we have to our ideals about love, even when they become destructive. It seems no matter what we go through we are still hopeful about getting it right one day. This is a true story about my 1st marriage and I really wanted to finally tell this story. I thought I would die as many do when a marriage ends because it hurts so much. The song was written on my omnichord and Ted Russell Kamp helped me bring this one into focus while giving the song some hope within the story. I think it’s incredibly universal for both sexes actually.” Tawny Ellis is known for writing personal, lyrical narratives and for her emotional vocals. Look out for Ellis’s fifth full-length album, ‘Love Life’, due for release on 24th July.
