About Ellyn And Her Music!



"Ellyn Fleming has joined the ranks of the area's leading songstresses.  She can play the fiery rocker, the raspy voiced blues mama or the folksy ingenue with equal authority."
Joe Longone - Worcester, MA Phoenix


"Ellyn Fleming IS the whole package, a true song smith, a knock out performer, and last but far from least, brilliant and beautiful."
George Cogswell, The Fort Pierce Tribune, Florida


"This American girl and her backing band The Inmates are the latest new female fronted AOR/Melodic Pop/Rock band on the scene....Musically she sounds like a cross between Pat Benetar and Heart."
Strutter'Zine Website


"The Whole CD ("Lost In The Fire") is an in your face chunk of lady rock, featuring loads of catchy hard rockers...that goes to show, the girls can rock hard just as well as the guys."
Nicky Baldrain - Spin City Magazine


"It may have been her belly button which got us to give this compact disc a spin, but it is her MUSIC, which earned this review. 'Everything' is an upbeat track, a tight and polished display of distorted guitar and thumping bass & drums.  You hear it twice and it becomes part of you.  It's catchy as hell.  Throughout the album, the trio deftly winds its way through material with roots in many styles, including blues, funk, and main stream rock & roll band like HEART.",
Patrick Fealey - Narragansett Times


"Ellyn Fleming is a true rock'n'roll girl from Newport/USA!...If you're into female fronted Melodic Hardrock, you better check her out! ",
Catchy Hooks Webzine


"Ellyn Fleming's latest Rock incarnation CRANKS!",
Mark Edmonds - Worcester, MA Phoenix.


"When one first meets  Ellyn Fleming, one encounters a very soft spoken, sweet, almost shy woman, who you would never believe is an exceptionally emotional performer.  Yet once Ms. Fleming takes the stage - WOW! FIRE!",
Jim Fay - North East Performer Magazine.


"Whether on stage or on record, Fleming has no qualms about being herself - her powerful, confident voice and often sensual lyrics invite you to come up close and peer into her soul."
Joe Longone - Worcester, MA Phoenix.


"Fleming's stance is that of a blonde James Dean and when she sings switchblades & silk scarves come to mind. She can make you feel like a voyeur, and if your not one, you might feel yourself blush at her honesty",
Patrick Fealey -  "Time Out/A & E" South County, RI


"Vocally Ellyn Fleming reminds me of Joan Jett, Darby Mills, Pat Benetar, Saraya and very early Heart....She's quite a good musician in her own right...her guitar work is similar to Sammy Hagar's playing and she plays as if she means it...if you get the chance check her out, she's cool" -
Nicky Baldrain - Spin City Magazine


"Ellyn Fleming is a first class strutter and her tight energetic vocals and guitar playing are more than ably backed by some serious bass work from Greg Lioce and league of his own Drummer Artie Dennis",
Cliff Garboden - Worcester, MA Phoenix Editor.


"This newer stuff really kicks and Ellyn can play with the best of them on guitar. She seems to be the type of performer that can catch the audience and real them in.",
Chris Hinkley - New England Rocks Magazine.


"You know about her crafty songwriting, hot rock and great voice, but if you have not seen Ellyn Fleming and her band in person you're missing out!  What are you waiting for!"
Alan Benson -  Worcester, MA Phoenix

"Fleming has a great knack for mixing sassy tunes with thoughtful ones to make a complete package."
Scott McLenahan - Worcester, MA Telegram & Gazette


"Ellyn's ability to shuffle between rock blues, country and folk numbers is admirable, while the arrangements and production are exquisite. Her all Original material is mean'n'taters fodder, partially reminiscent of Springsteen or even Paxton in its application of fundamental truisms."
Michael Caito -  Providence, RI Phoenix
 

"An artistic triumph!  The material is smart enough to show some hard introspection and honest enough to confront life's dysfunctions with confessional courage"
Joe Longone - Worcester, MA Phoenix


"Original, Innovative, Entertaining!  The Ellyn Fleming Band is ready to 'HAPPEN'!"
Sylvia Stoun Mureddu, President, Newport Federation of Musicians, Local 529, American Federation of Musicians
 


Feisty Bitch Records!!! Great name for a record label and it most definitely fits the fiery, blues based, hard-rock that Ellyn and her backing band play. Ellyn belts out the vocals and strums the guitar over her pounding, right on rhythm section. This 6-song CD/EP is chock full of Hard Rock that your mutha warned you about. You know the stuff they play in those roadside bars where the guys from Great White hang out when they are out on the road, where the boys are tough, the women are loose, and everybody likes the music LOUD!!!
Arthur Dare - Northeast Performer Magazine


Ellyn Fleming - "Lost In The Fire" Review by Nicky Baldrian Vocally Ellyn Fleming reminds me of Joan Jett, Darby Mills, Pat Benatar, Saraya, and very early Heart, whilst musically the direction leans into the Posion bump and grind rock of the eighties. She's quite a good musician in her own right and has written and produced this album herself. Tracks like "Tell It Like It Is" are built for stadiums and are rock anthems with plenty of punch and "Inside" bares comparisents to Lee Aron and Romeo's Daughter. The whole cd is an in your face chunk of lady rock, featuring loads of catchy hard rockers, and goes to show that the girls can rock hard just as well as the guys. "Lost In The Fire" shows a lot of talent for this Rhode Island chick, who's vocal skills are very chic and cute. Other songs that grab you by the balls are "Got To Have You" and the opening guitar breaks on the title track. Her guitar work is quite similar to Sammy Hagar's playing and she plays as if she mean it, the best way to describe this record is pop/rock with a sleazy groove that get the blood pressure rising, if you get the chance check her out, she's cool.
Review by Nicky Baldrian



Anyone looking to start a career in rock 'n roll might want to take a page from Ellyn Fleming's book. The energetic Worcester native, who'll appear in Clinton this Saturday, and in Worcester on January 20, first began singing and playing her acoustic guitar at open-stage get-togethers as a teenager. Propelled by a drive to become a professional musician, she began dedicating a great deal of time to learning her trade, performing whenever she could. Now, years later, that consuming passion is beginning to pay off. The former coffeehouse player currently enjoys the luxury of playing rock full time. Armed with a tight trio, Fleming can most often be seen wielding her custom-made black bodied electric ax in little rooms all over the region. Delivering power rock with an attitude, Fleming, who now resides in Newport, Rhode Island, recently recorded her latest CD, appropriately titled Rock This, and released on Feisty Bitch Records. Offering six grunge laden tracks, the disc was done, according to Fleming (who's still currently unsigned, hint, hint), on a spur of the moment's notice in a Providence studio. Unlike her slickly - produced and acousti-rock oriented 1994 Something Real disc, Rock This rocks indeed, offering those unfamiliar with Fleming's latest musical incarnation a sample of what they'd get should they see her live. "Basically, it was that I hadn't recorded anything in a couple of years", the singer explains. "And the studio time just came up. I'd already wanted to record something that was representative of how my band sounds today - not just to have to give to radio stations, but to use as a demo too. You know how it is. A lot of club owners won't hire a band without a decent demo. So that was part of the reason. The disc sounds like the Ellyn Fleming Band you'd hear if you went out to one of our shows." Opening with the driving "Everything" and cranking-on through songs, including "Rock This Love," and "I'm Not Shy," Rock This does sound incredibly close to what you might have heard if you happened to catch Fleming and her band last Friday Evening at Hooligan's, a gamy little gin mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Like the majority of places she plays, the bar had no stage, or sound or lights, for that matter which forced Fleming to perform on the floor in the corner of the room next to the joint's windowless front door. I walked in mid-way through the first set, and saw an elaborate display of flashing light bars and a smoke machine, which cranked out fog filling the tiny room. I couldn't help but be taken back by it all. Here I was in a little corner bar, in a blue-collar 'hood, watching a hard-hitting rock band gnash their way through the evening. All I could think about was how out of place this seemed. But the locals didn't, if their applause was any indication...
Mark Edmonds - Worcester, MA Phoenix - ROCK THIS




"The only part I don't like is I have to change in these awful dirty, freezing cold bathrooms." So says Newport singer and songwriter Ellyn Fleming, who also knows the ordeal is somewhat of a privilege. And if you saw what she wear's on stage, you might be sympathetic. At the very least, you'd be curious. On the cover of her latest compact disc, Rock This, which appears on "Feisty Bitch Records", she appears dressed in a bright red brassiere, black leather jacket and tights. Her stance is like a blonde James Dean with his hands on his hips, big earrings, and even bigger hair. She stands in a cloud o f mist which is rising to enshroud her. "Well, hey, it gets hot up there", Fleming responds when asked about her provocative dress. The fact is that beyond the look is the music and the voice. When Fleming sings, switchblades and silk scarves come to mind. It may have been her bellybutton which got us to give this compact disc a spin, but it is her music which earned this review. After five years of performing throughout the Northeast, Fleming (who writes the songs, sings them, and plays guitar) is poised for a big label recording contract. An original rock band that works out steadily enough to pay the bills is something of an anomaly, proof that Fleming has paid her dues changing in those dingy ladies rooms from New York to Boston. Since she wrote her first song at the age of nine, Fleming has come a long way. This year she was nominated Best Female Vocalist by the readers of the Providence and Worcester Phoenix newspapers. She won the honor last year and this year won for Best Rock Act in Worcester, MA. Rock This is Fleming's attempt to bring her music to a larger audience, on radio. Last year, Fleming teamed up with The James Montgomery Band on a video to benefit Creative Television of R.I. The Concert aired for eight weeks on cable TV. "Feisty Bitch" Okay, so the name Fleming chose for her record label begs the question: "Is she!" "I called it Feisty Bitch Records because there aren't as many women out there doing rock," Fleming says. She said we see plenty of women rockers on MTV and VH1, but when you get out on the road, television and reality part. Perhaps the label stems from the songs themselves. Fleming is unsparing and direct at times, as likely to be inspired by regret as by sexual liberation. "Even though I use a lot of sexual analogies, the underlying meaning is the courage of the human spirit," she says. " 'I'm Not Shy' is about coming out of yourself." Take this line, from "Everything", the first track on the compact disc: "I sweat passion baby/you sweat greed/we've got the same reaction/but we both got different needs." Elsewhere on the song is this questioning, loaded with double meaning: "Don't you really want everything?" Though at first the song may seem to be inspired by a love gone bad, Fleming says it is actually about a business relationship that did not work out. For her "everything" means music first, then the business, a philosophy which has helped her survive since she first performed at the age of 14. "if you aren't in it for the love of music, you won't last because the business end is so nasty," Fleming said. It is especially tough when you're starting out, when you're just another unknown artist in America and the booking agents have all the power. "Everything" is a upbeat track, a tight and polished display of distorted guitar and thumping bass and drums. You hear it twice and it becomes a part of you. It's catchy as hell. Throughout the album, the trio deftly wends its way through material with roots in many styles, including blues, funk, and main stream rock and bands like Heart. The sound is something closer to good old straight-ahead four-four rock 'n roll, but if you heard it on alternative radio, it would fit. The group's high level of musicianship is apparent and one senses they'd be at home in any style. Many Influences As a song writer, Fleming's influences include; Neil Young, Stevie Nicks, and Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. She's mining her experience for our benefit, at times employing methods often used in fiction. There are thoughts, abstract and concrete, but some of her lines are delivered like dialogue from real conversations. Fleming can make you feel like a voyeur, and if you're not one, you might feel yourself blush at her honesty. As when she sings, "I don't know why but I feel like your stalking me/I don't know why I want to please you but I do", in the song "Like a River". When it comes to her job as a front woman, Fleming says she has been most influenced by Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, and Michael Jackson - dynamic acts to follow. No matter what happens with Rock This, Fleming says her main goal is to keep on writing and performing, because she can't see herself doing anything else. A record deal would be nice, but she is happy now. "Music is a huge part of my life. It's what I do. I love performing live. That's the payback. It's very natural thing for me. I feel comfortable and safe up there. It's my little home." Maybe that's why when she sings "I'm gonna rock you" on "Rock This Love," it sounds like a warning, not a claim. It's as if Ellyn Fleming is telling us she can't help herself.
