Since his Alligator Records debut 30 years ago, Southern blues-rock guitar wizard, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis [website | Amazon.com] has become a bona fide worldwide guitar hero. The Chicago Sun-Times says, "It's hard to overstate the raw power of his music." His powerful new album, Winning Hand, features ten brilliantly performed, fervently sung tracks, ranging from blistering blues to heart-pounding rock to soulful ballads.
Armed with his signature molten licks, melodic riffs and rousing, intense solos, Ellis, as his legions of fans will attest, is among the blues world's best-loved and most well-travelled statesmen. He is revered for his guitar virtuosity, passionate vocals and memorable original songs. He is also known as a guitarist's guitarist, with famous friends including Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Oliver Wood, Jonny Lang and members of Widespread Panic calling on him to sit in and jam. "A musician never got famous staying home," he says.
Whether he's on stage with his own band or jamming with artists like Buddy Guy, the Tedeschi Trucks Band or Gov't Mule, he always plays with grit, soul and unbridled passion. Back home on Alligator Records with his new album and a massive live tour in the works, Tinsley Ellis is ready to prove again that whenever he picks up a guitar, he's playing with a winning hand.
