A glance at the song titles on Tawny Ellis’ Love Life reveals a clear, unifying theme:  “Pretend Love”, “Deep End of Love”, “Spark of Love”.  “This record took about 3 years to finish,” Ellis says. “I can’t tell you why, it was just the natural progression of it.  The songs for the most part are very personal stories or perhaps stories I tell about what I have observed in relationships.  I built these songs mostly with three different people, Gio Loria-my husband, Jesse Siebenberg and Ted Russell Kamp. I was lucky to have all of their extraordinary talent and input on board.”
