It is no secret that Austin TX is home of some of the hottest guitar slingers of the past and into the present. Meet Austin Music Award winner for “Best Guitar 2016” – Ulrich Ellison. Other notable guitarists that have received this title are SRV, Eric Johnson and Gary Clark Jr. Relatively unknown in the US, Ellison and his Tribe have become a name to remember in the European Blues Rock scene. As Finalists of the European Blues Challenge 2016, their album “Rise Up From The Ashes” was critically acclaimed and featured in some of the well-known publications like the German and Norwegian “Bluesnews”,”Blues Magazine” of the Netherlands, and many others. Besides his virtuoso and emotional guitar style, Ellison’s music rises to the top through distinct songwriting and a great instinct for tones and textures. The songs incorporate mature dynamics and nuances, driven by the powerful tightness of the Tribe’s rhythm section. The new album is more rock-based than previous material, and, like the title track “America” might make you guess, very much inspired by recent political events. Still, this album is made to entertain and incorporates both humor and depth in dealing with the challenges and joys of living in the year 2017.
“America’s Most Wanted” Tour 2017 will bring Ulrich Ellison and Tribe all across the EU and USA – secure your tickets today!
