Artist Info: Tinsley Ellis wears his Southern roots proudly. Born in Atlanta in 1957, he grew up in southern Florida and first played guitar at age eight. He found the blues through the back door of British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, The Animals, Cream, and The Rolling Stones. In 1981, along with veteran blues singer and harpist Chicago Bob Nelson, Tinsley formed The Heartfixers, a group that would become Atlanta’s top-drawing blues band. After releasing three albums with the band, Ellis set out on a solo career and soon signed with Records, where he released the hit album Georgia Blue. Before long, Alligator arranged to reissue his previous albums Cool On It and Tore Up, thus exposing Tinsley’s blistering earlier music to a growing fan base. Tinsley’s subsequent releases, 1989’s Fanning The Flames, 1992’s Trouble Time, 1994’s Storm Warning and 1997’s Fire It Up further expanded the guitarist’s hero status. His success continued in the 2000s with the albums Kingpin, Moment of Truth and 2009’s Speak No Evil.
