Prolific musician and songwriter Dennis Ellsworth and producer/writer Ari Rhodes are the latest signings to CMPA member, Vince Degiorgio’s Cymba Music Publishing Company.

Ellsworth, whose newest album, his sixth and his first with Cymba Music, is titled Romantic As It Gets, has toured Canada extensively, made inroads into the U.S. and built a substantial following in the UK.

Cymba notes: “A skilled songwriter and a talented live musician, Ellsworth’s seamless blend of modern East Coast folk and rock and roll, with shades of classic Americana, roots and country, shows that he is an artist who is truly in control of his work.”

Producer/writer Ari Rhodes, who recently relocated from his native Edmonton, Alberta to Toronto, is one half of the production house and independent record label “Hands Up! Music.”

Rhodes has worked with a wide array of independent Canadian artists in a variety of genres, including Bryan Finlay, Lexi Strate, rapper “Toxsic”, and Edmonton-based artist/writer Jasmine Singh, as well as with fellow Cymba Music writer Olivia Wik.

Rhodes got his start at age 14 and has opened for some of the world’s most well-known DJs.

A highly proficient producer and engineer, over the years Rhodes has been hired on a wide variety of projects including orchestral, film, house, pop, and dance music.
