Ellery, formerly known as Dividing the Plunder, are a musical group founded by married couple Tasha and Justin Golden. They changed the name to "Ellery" after finding it in a book at a shop in Iowa. They began work as Ellery in 2005. Their style has been compared to the that of Sarah McLachlan, Ben Folds, and alternative folk, the Cincinnati-based couple wrote, recorded, and released the Make Your Troubles Mine EP which they recorded with the help of producer and guitarist - Ric Hordinski - (formerly of Over the Rhine). Their debut was received with positive reviews in local newspapers, and their local public radio station WNKU put them in regular rotation. After a feature in Performing Songwriter magazine, Virt Records contacted the band, signed them, and sent them back into the studio to turn the EP into a full-length album. The result, Lying Awake, was released in 2006. Although they are normally described as a duo, backing music is provided by Ric Hordonski - electric guitars, loops, keyboards, Amos Heller - bass, and Josh Seurkamp - percussion, drums.
