Scott Ellison

During the 1970s, Scott’s home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was a hotbed of musical talent. Eric Clapton and Freddie King’s bands were based in Tulsa, as was Leon Russell’s Shelter Records. Influenced and electrified by the British Invasion bands, moved by the sounds of Motown, and touched by the soulfulness of the Rhythm and Blues music coming out of Memphis, Scott organized his first band as a youngster.

In 1977, he began touring as a guitar player with Jessica James (Conway Twitty’s daughter), and by 1981 “Gatemouth” Brown had tapped Scott to play rhythm in his band.  By the 1990s, Scott had formed a blues band and was opening shows for such legends as Joe Cocker, Roy Orbison, The Fabulous T-Birds, Leon Russell, Bobby Bland and Buddy Guy.  He considers opening for B.B. King at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center in January 2008 a major highlight of his career.

A prolific song writer, Scott has composed and released numerous CDs.  Cold Hard Cash, produced by Dennis Walker of Robert Cray fame, featuring all songs written by Scott and Dennis,  Live At Joey’s, Chains Of Love and Bad Case Of The Blues all have been well received.

Scott’s compositions have been played on the soundtracks of several popular tv shows, including “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” an MTV movie, and the 2007 movie, “Feast Of Love,” starring Morgan Freeman.

“It sounds and feels authentic throughout but is also accessible and delivers the blues nicely for people that got their first taste of the blues from the Blues Brothers.”

-Chris Spector (Midwest Record)
