Scott Ellison – Zero-2-Sixty
For his new album, Zero-2-Sixty, Ellison wanted to strip things down and deliver a juke-joint-rockin' blues set to deepen the groove laid down in his chart-topping album, There's Something About the Night. His searing guitar and soul-drenched vocals make for a potent statement: respect for the tradition and a view to the future.

After many years making his way on the road performing both in the most humble or elegant and different venues, now singer, guitar player and songwriter Scott Ellison bursts up with an undeniable strength and power, thanks to his particular powerhouse-blues sound that can be found in this interesting and tasteful album called “Zero-2-Sixty”.
Scott has been in the music business since the late seventies when he started to be well known in his native Tulsa, Oklahoma as a member Eric Clapton’s and Freddie King’s bands. In 1980 and 1981 Scott was also member of Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown’s band which enabled him to be among the most admired and recognized Texas blues scene guitar players.
In the mid-eighties he settled in Los Angeles and became a prestigious session musician, putting his guitar to the service of Gary “US” Bonds and Peaches & Herb. In the nineties he decided to form his own band, opening for artists like Roy Orbison, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Joe Cocker, Leon Russell or Buddy Guy among others. Since there on, Scott Ellison has not stopped to be involved in different projects, besides playing regularly and recording some albums.
Now he presents a fantastic well produced work, with a bunch of songs where he shows his talent as a guitar player and composer, as well as his skills as singer with an infectious communicative voice. Twelve songs where blues is always present, he displays with determination, strength and vehemence, surrounded by a group of musicians who give the best of themselves.
