NEW TINSLEY ELLIS RELEASE, RED CLAY SOUL, NOW AVAILABLE
Landslide Records is excited to announce that the compact disc release of RED CLAY SOUL, a vibrant new set of original, soulful compositions from veteran Georgia blues rocker Tinsley Ellis is now available. A follow up to Ellis’ award winning, critically acclaimed TOUGH LOVE, the new album combines Ellis’ masterful guitar and vocal prowess with fresh arrangements and a crack backing band. Produced by Ellis and keyboardist Kevin McKendree, RED CLAY SOUL was recorded live in McKendree’s Nashville studio with bassist Steve Mackey and drummer Lynn Williams. Oliver Wood (the Wood Brothers) contributed guitar and background vocal parts on the duet, “Givin’ You Up,” which he also co-wrote with Ellis. The 4th release for Ellis’ Heartfixer Music label, RED CLAY SOUL boasts a wide ranging assortment of soul induced blues rock that opens with “All I Think About,” a Freddie King inspired rocker, then moves along effortlessly through the southern soul of “Callin’,” a groove laden shuffle, “Circuit Rider,” and the Latin based instrumental, “Estero Noche.” Ellis is set for a worldwide slate of festival, theater and club bookings for the rest of the year.
