"Feral blues guitar...non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor's edge... his eloquence dazzles...he achieves pyrotechnics that rival Beck and Clapton." -- Rolling Stone
"Ellis unleashed a torrent of dazzling musicianship pitched somewhere between the exhilarating volatility of rock and roll and the melancholic passion of urban blues." -- Los Angeles Times
"Raw and righteous, funky and strong." -- Village Voice
Southern blues-rock guitar wizard, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis visits the Coda on the heels his powerful new album, Winning Hand, set for a January 2018 release on Alligator Records. With a legacy built on four decades of performing, Ellis has toured the globe, released 19 albums, and hit the heights of commercial success with songs covered by other artists – notably, Jonny Lang recording "A Quitter Never Wins." Ellis even gave Derek Trucks his recording debut on Ellis' Storm Warning. He won Rock/Blues Album Of The Year with Tough Love in 2015 from Blues Blast Magazine and made many "Best Of" lists within Downbeat and others. Tinsley Ellis continues to release compelling music. And he continues to bring it night after night at one venue after another across the globe, sharing his blues-steeped legacy, fine songwriting, and deep pride in being a Georgia-based artist.
Over the course of his career, Ellis has shared stages with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, The Allman Brothers, Leon Russell, Son Seals, Koko Taylor, Albert Collins and many others. Whether he’s on stage with his own band or jamming with artists like Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi, Gov’t Mule or Widespread Panic, he always plays with grit, soul and unbridled passion.
