February 9 street date. Blues-rock guitar legend and tireless road warrior Tinsley Ellis swaps his blistering, full-band workouts for equally intense, soul-searching acoustic folk blues. Ellis has been performing solo acoustic shows almost exclusively for over a year now. All of Tinsley's famed guitar chops and gruff, passionate vocals are on full display across the album's 12 tracks. Nine newly written originals sit alongside reverent, yet spirited, versions of songs by Son House, Willie Dixon, and Leo Kottke. Whether showcasing intricate fingerpicking or letting loose with fiery slide runs, Tinsley delivers each song with the unvarnished intimacy of the best acoustic blues.
