I Wish I Was A Train (Woodshed Resistance Records / BMI - August 10, 2018)
I Wish I Was a Train is a rather important artistic mile marker in Ellerman’s career. Dark times can often yield the most outstanding work. Walking the fine line between honky-tonk heroism and hand-sewn Americana, Lyman Ellerman culls together vast stylistic influences from the burnt, deeply-troubled edges of Townes Van Zandt to the polished but expansive approach of The Eagles. Having already shared stages with David Allan Coe, Dallas Moore, and Ward Davis, Ellerman is poised to reach the Americana masses with his forthcoming record I Wish I Was A Train, twisting his poetic grandeur into honestly grim reflections of addiction, loss, recovery and heartache.
