His name is TINSLEY ELLIS and his music is just awesome. Meet him this week.JON CARROLL grew up wanting to be a musician from the time he could walk and although joining STARLIGHT VOCAL BAND brought him an international number one hit and a grammy award - he didn't much care.  Find out why when we meet Jon.Listener's choice and this week Roger asked if I could find one of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters who he hasn’t seen or heard of for some 35 years. So I did and we take a walk down memory lane with KERRYN TOLHURST who founded the band, The Dingoes.We’d love to have you join us!"A Breath Of Fresh Air" with Sandy Kaye.

Tinsley Ellis

Rig Rundowns

Tinsley Ellis broke onto the national blues scene with his early ’80s band, the Heartfixers. By late in the decade, when the Atlanta-based guitarist and singer began releasing albums under his own name, he also became a fixture in the genre’s international club and festival circuit. Over the years he's earned a reputation for full-throttle live shows and well-crafted albums that hinge on his powerful singing and on his playing, which is based in tradition but packed with signature moves like deft finger slides, the use of open, ringing strings in single-note solos, and bends borrowed from B.B. King but laden with his own emotionalism and rock 'n' roll energy.Ellis has been a seemingly tireless road warrior—at least until Covid. But even the pandemic couldn't slow his songwriting, and he penned more than 200 new titles while in lockdown. You can hear 10 of those tunes, including 6-string bonfires like “Slow Train To Hell,” on his new album Devil May Care—the 20th in his catalog. Back on the road this year, Ellis stopped at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley on March 3, where he showed Premier Guitar his rig and told stories of close encounters with B.B. King and other greats after soundcheck and, that night, delivered a sermon on the power and glory of blues. His current run continues until the end of May, and Ellis has just been nominated in the 2022 Blues Music Awards for Blue-Rock Entertainer of the Year.[Brought to you by D’Addario XPND Pedalboard: https://ddar.io/xpnd.rr]

Bo Emerson talks to blues-rock guitarist Tinsley Ellis

Go Atlanta

For about 40 years Tinsley Ellis has lived his life on the road, either driving to a gig, setting up, performing, tearing down, or driving to the next gig. Ellis made himself legendary as a touring machine, and an icon of the Atlanta blues scene. Then came COVID-19. In March 2020, halfway through a 60-gig jaunt promoting his album “Ice Cream in Hell,” everything fell apart, all the clubs canceled, and Ellis drove home from Northern California in one, long, painful, three-day burst. On this week's podcast, Bo Emerson talks to Ellis about the difficulties of being a touring musician in the pandemic era, returning to the road and his new album “Devil May Care.” Learn more about your ad choices.
