Durham singer reemerges with striking new video

Many Charlotteans may remember singer-songwriter Jocelyn Ellis from the rock band the Alpha Theory. The band was based in Charlotte and played here frequently although Ellis moved back to her hometown of Durham after graduating from UNC-Charlotte. I was impressed by the group's Femmefest sets a couple of years ago. Ellis could easily shift from fronting a rock band to Alicia Keys-style piano balladry.

As a solo artist she demonstrates even more versatility with the sleek video for "One Step Closer" (which was released in April). I'm excited to see what she does next. For more on Ellis go to www.jocelynellis.com
