Ellis Paul: A New Brand Of 'Schoolhouse Rock'

Download Audio

The music of singer/songwriter Ellis Paul has been heard everywhere, from Boston folk clubs to Hollywood films and TV commercials. And now, it's being heard by children across the country.

Paul just released his second children's album titled The Hero in You, featuring songs about heroic figures in American history, from the more well-known — such as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison — to the lesser-known, like world traveler/journalist Nellie Bly and former White House chef Augustus Jackson.

The Hero in You has won over children and parents alike and was recently awarded the Gold Parent's Choice Award.

Paul joins us live from the studios of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities in Charlottesville, Virginia.
