Tinsley Ellis streams Red Clay Soul

Tinsley Ellis

Tinsley Ellis has streamed his latest album Red Clay Soul in full.

The follow-up to 2015’s Tough Love has just been released via his Heartfixer label, and its set against the background of the red clay embankments of his home state of Georgia.

Ellis tells Guitar World: “Georgia is where the blues has got soul. From the gospel inspired Ray Charles to the R&B of James Brown and Otis Redding, to the rock’n’roll of Little Richard, to the blues rock of the Allman Brothers Band, all these acts have one thing in common.

“They all have the sound of Georgia – and down here we call that sound red clay soul.”

The album is on sale now in CD (opens in new tab) and digital (opens in new tab) formats. Ellis is currently touring North America.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
