“During the lockdown from the pandemic, I had a lot of time and I didn’t want to lose my chops so, I wrote about 200 songs I think and we picked the best 10 to make up the new “Devil May Care” album.”
“Devil May Care,” the twentieth album from blues great Tinsley Ellis was released early this year at the end of January and unlike what was the case with his prior record “Ice Cream In Hell,” he is actually getting to hit the road and promote this latest effort.
After releasing “Ice Cream In Hell” in October of 2019, Ellis was six-weeks into a 60 date tour when the pandemic shutdown the globe but as stated previously he kept himself busy writing, recording and sending tracks off to his record company; using them as somewhat of a litmus test while in quarantine.
“I was sending songs up to Alligator Records and they were weighing in on them,” he began. “I didn’t send them all 200 because some of them were not what I would call Alligator Records type songs. Either they were acoustic type songs or even rock along the lines of ZZ Top or something like that or even British Invasion. So, I had all kinds of different songs and if I had a song that I thought they would like at Alligator I’d send it along to them. So, they probably listened to 90 or maybe 100 of the songs. They kind of operate like; if I were in the newspaper business they would be like my editor because I’m too close it. I fall in love with every song that I write and I’m too close to it a lot of the time and what they do is sort of weigh in on it having never heard the song before and it gives me an idea as to whether the fans would like it as well. I find that it works very well because when I had my own label I really missed that input.”
Currently wrapping up a run of shows which saw him make stops in Pennsylvania at The Sellersville Theater and Arden Gild Hall in Delaware, Ellis will bring this leg of the tour to a close on April 8 in Asheville, NC and April 9 in Elkin, NC before picking up again Memorial Day weekend in Boca Raton, FL. So, what is he concentrating on? Ellis says that he will be performing a mix of the new record along with selections from his previous catalog and with more than four decades of music to choose from and some well-timed surprises; the shows often “Vary” from night to night.
“There were only a few tickets that remained for Sellersville and I think it was sold out,” he said with satisfaction. ”We focused a lot on the new “Devil May Care” album and songs from my past and the live album “Storm Warning” and things like that. Blues are more from the heart than from the head. There is a lot of improv and we definitely vary the setlist as well. We definitely want to focus a lot of attention on the new CD but there are so many standards that we do; we pulled out an old Freddie King song out of the blue the other night, I called it; there are songs that just kind of come and go. The band? Yeah, there’s quite a bit of improv and they follow me pretty well and I follow them pretty well I think.”
Nominated in 2021 for “Blues Artist of the Year” by The Bles Foundation for a Blues Music Awards and a stalwart in the genre, Ellis has garnered accolades, comparisons and praise for his guitar playing style, his recordings and live performances. So; how did he get into the blues?
“I initially got into the blues through the music of the British Invasion. Bands like The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, The Animals and as time went on Cream came out; that was a real game changer. Then after Cream came The Allman BrothersBand and a friend of mine, his older brother said, “if you like that kind of music, you have to go see the guy where they are getting it all from” and we said; who is that? He said, “You’ve got to go see B.B. King.” There was a time when B.B. King was playing hotel lounges for a week at a time and whoever played this one particular hotel lounge near where I grew up in South Florida; whoever played that lounge had to do a teen matinee on a Saturday. I’m sure the bands hated doing that but B.B. King played for us teenagers and there was no looking back. I saw him and all of a sudden, I could see where Peter Green, Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and Duane Allman were coming from and after that I got the chance to go see pretty much anyone who came through my area. I saw Muddy Waters several times, I saw Howlin’ Wolf and after that I started opening for these people when I was in college in Atlanta. I opened for Willie Dixon and pretty much anybody in the blues world that was coming through and then I got with Alligator Records in 1988 and the next thing I know I’m up on stage playing with Otis Rush and Albert Collins, Lonnie Mack, Buddy Guy and Koko Taylor and people like that; not to sound like a name dropper or anything but except for Buddy Guy; they’re all gone and that is kind of sad. So, whenever I do an interview I like to mention the people who came up with this music in the first place because Lord knows I didn’t make it up.”
“Devil May Care” is available through Alligator Records on various formats including CD and translucent red vinyl as well as online at most or all of the usual suspects and on Ellis’s website. To discover more about Tinsley Ellis please visit http://tinsleyellis.com/index.html.
