Minneapolis-bred Ellis is about as unpretentious as she can be. But the attention over her sixth CD, Break the Spell, has left the 31-year-old modern-folk guitarist positively giddy. Critics have described the 11-track disc with every upbeat adjective in the dictionary, from "transcendent" to "very, very real." Ellis is on a tour stop in Cleveland tonight to peddle both the album and its acoustic remix, Undefended Heart. She'll even autograph them for you, if you ask. Ellis goes onstage at 8 tonight at the Barking Spider, 11310 Juniper Road. Admission is free. Call 216-421-2863 or visit www.barkingspidertavern.com.
