Grammy nominated and Billboard Charting Hall Reunites with Tower of Power's 'Doc' Kupka On 12 Track Release from Strokeland Records

LOS ANGELES - Californer -- Today, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter Ellis Hall has released his newest album Let's Make an Arrangement on Strokeland Records (Regime Music Group). The album marks Ellis' first full-length release since 2005's The Spirit Lingers On… And On.

"Working with Doc Kupka aka "The Funky Doctor" - has been way more than awesome. He is a true wordsmith and I'm honored to help bring these words and music to life. Now that is truly CHAKALAKA (Joyous)!!!"

Let's Make an Arrangement was co-written by Stephen "Doc" Kupka of funk and soul pioneers, Tower of Power, and features songs from a variety of musical influences. As Hall was the lead vocalist for Tower of Power from 1984-1988, fans have been waiting for a collaboration like this for years. Says Kupka, "Ellis Hall is one of the all-time greats! He means the world to me, both personally and professionally, and I hope this project is the first of many to come."
