Welcome to the official homepage of Steve Ellis.

Steve Ellis first began singing in a band at the age of 15. The band were called Soul Survivors, initially gate crashing weddings, youth clubs and barmitzva`s in north London on the pretence that they were booked to perform. When the band improved substantially they began to play venues such as The Marquee, The Flamingo, Tiles and Mod clubs in Brighton, Clacton and Soul clubs in Manchester, Stoke etc.

After the bands first release on Decca Records, they moved on to CBS and became one of the most successful British pop acts of the late `60s, under their new name "Love Affair", and had a string of hit records.

COW & Steve Ellis coming soon......
Double A side vinyl 45 single Limited edition
"Rise" and "Up"

Mark and Maxine from the band COW met Steve Ellis (voice of the love affair) in a clothes and record shop in Brighton in the summer of 2013.
We started gassing about various interests, mainly music, and we struck up an instant friendship.
Steve mentioned that he was thinking of putting together a new solo LP of his own material and songs from other writers too.
We sent Steve half a dozen of our own songs waited for a bit, then Steve suggested we record two of the songs together, we spent a few days at Black Barn studio in Ripley Surrey, and the job was done !
Engineered by Sir Charles Rees and with a little help from some of our mates.....including Kenny Carrol on keys, Paul Weller on guitar and piano, Tom Heel on drums, Andy Lewis on bass guitar and Kev Wallbank on tuba....the double A was in the bag!
The single is due for release soon with "Rise" going on Steve's new album and "Up" being put on COW's new album both due out later this year.

Enjoy the sneak preview

Love and more love
Mark, Maxine and Steve
