The Ellyn Maybe Band’s unique brand of pop poetry has garnered praise from such luminaries as Jackson Browne, Henry Rollins and Greil Marcus.Their critically acclaimed poetry/music album, Rodeo for the Sheepish, was released by Hen House Studios. Band members include Ellyn Maybe, Harlan Steinberger, Robbie Fitzsimmons, Danny Moynahan, Tommy Jordan and Paul Bushnell.
Jackson Browne’s note to Ellyn Maybe at the time of her CD release “Rodeo For The Sheepish” – “I have started to write something about you for your site several times, and each time I am struck by my inability to describe what you do in terms beautiful enough, original enough to do you justice. But it’s always been this way. Who has ever been able to say in other words what a song says? Maybe it’s why I like your poems so much, they say what can only be said in exactly the way you say it. The best way of turning someone on to you is to play you for them.”
