Gen Ellis

Gen Ellis was the bass guitarist in About Them Shoes.

After meeting Hugh, at the time his son’s Drama teacher, Gen first worked with him as a guitarist in a 90’s acoustic project ‘The Lynch Mob’ but switched to bass for the ‘Ed Fox Band’, a group which emerged from a one-off Neil Young tribute.

Following a mid-decade hiatus, Hugh and Gen formed ‘Undercover’ which played together for 4 years, disbanding in Sept 2012.

Gen was not only the bass player, but the band’s archivist, set list organiser and motivator.
