According to one of the members of the ONTD community, Elliott Yamin has been dating a "LA" model by the name of Jamie Paetz.
In late 2007, he released the Christmas-themed , followed in 2009, spawning the successful singles “Fight for Love” and “Can’t Keep on Loving You (From a Distance).” Yamin’s international touring activities have included several trips to far-flung locales on behalf of a variety of charities, relief groups and peace organizations.
He’s also worked tirelessly as an activist and spokesman for a number of organizations promoting awareness, advocacy and aid for those living with diabetes.
“There were some hints of that on my first album, but my second album was pretty much machine-driven.
I like that kind of music too, but this time I wanted to create music about real issues and make a record which reflects this.” Yamin’s fresh new creative leap is apparent on such impassioned new tunes as the intimate, insistent “Self Control,” the rousingly upbeat “Gather ‘Round,” the poignantly autobiographical “Virginia” and the commanding title track, whose lyrical sentiments underline the sense of personal commitment that Yamin brought to the project.
Ethel was a Russian Jewish immigrant, and was the daughter of Abraham “Abe” Cohen and Ida Oranskaya (or Oransky in English).Both of those tunes were penned by Brett Nolan’s father, veteran tunesmith Kenny Nolan, renowned for writing such hits as “My Eyes Adored You” and “Lady Marmalade,” as well as his own ’70s smash “I Like Dreamin’.” “It was very inspiring having Kenny involved with this project,” Yamin notes.“He’d come by during our sessions and he’d play songs for me here and there, and some of them really stuck, including the two on the album.Yamin’s close rapport with his fans has allowed him to road-test many of ‘s songs.“I’ve been fortunate to get out there and play a lot of this material before the album was released,” he reports, “Everywhere we’ve been so far, the fans have responded really positively.
