Ellis Nayr

Hip Hop // Park West, Dublin

Dublin, Ireland based Rapper/Singer Ellis Nayr creates cultivating forms of hip hop, combining trap, boom bap and spirituality to compliment wordplay while progressively pushing new sounds to experiment with. He has been making music since the age of seventeen.

While living in Kildare in 2017, Ellis created his home studio and released several singles throughout those eleven months, experimenting with dark conscious melodic vocal styles.

His debut album "Purple Detox" in 2019 touched on subjects of mental health, mindfulness and unity, receiving excellent feedback with many copies sold. That same year, Ellis collaborated with Italian producer Gabrif on the single "Lost in colors", an electronic summer feel good track, sparking large attention.

In 2020 during the pandemic he released the "Minerva" mixtape, displaying diverse flows on mainstream instrumentals.

Following a three year hiatus, Ellis returns to music releasing his single "Personal Rap Jesus", a rap version of Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus.

Fast forward to 2024, several gigs have been performed at the Crowbar Terrace, Sin é, The Bernard Shaw, The Warehouse in Balbriggan.
