Rob Ellis is perhaps best known as the drummer, producer and co-arranger of works with PJ Harvey. Since 1990, between extensive touring with PJ Harvey, Rob Ellis has been involved with a wide range of other projects. Rob is also very interested in contemporary “classical” music (for want of a better term), having released recordings in that vein ‘Music For The Home’ Volumes 1 and 2, on the Leaf label. We were thrilled that he agreed to take part in the 2012 Home Normal release 'Cordophony' by Philippe Petit & Friends.
Here's a little more information about Rob Ellis:
