Segar_ellis_small In the late 20s and early 30s, Ellis made several recordings for the OKeh label. He sang alto and tenor, with which he was uncomfortable early in his career, believing his voice to be too high, and he didn’t favor the more sentimental tunes of the day. But, OKeh records wanted a voice that could compete with Columbia’s Gene Austin
