SCOTT ELLISON

 Scott caught the music bug at an early age-February 13, 1964 to be exact-and just like every other nine year old who was watching the Beatles on Ed Sullivan that night, he fell in love with the guitar. During the 70's Scott's home town of Tulsa was a hot bed of musical talent. Eric Clapton and Freddie King's bands were both 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, it wasn't long before Scott started his own band.
In 1977 he began touring with Jessica James (Conway Twitty's daughter) and by 1981 "Gatemouth" Brown had plucked up this emerging, energetic guitar player to play Rhythm in his band.
Ellison became acclimated to the life of a musician on the Road and found that he loved it. He watched and learned a great deal from playing with Gatemouth. "What impressed me so much was not only his musicianship - he was a big influence on my guitar playing", Ellison says," It was his energy. He just had so much fun doing it. I told myself I want to have fun like that when I'm doing my own thing." A move to LA in the mid. 80's found Scott playing and touring with the likes of The Box Tops, The Shirelles, J.J. Jackson, The Drifters, The Coasters and Gary "U.S." Bonds.
By the 90's Scott had formed his own Blues Band and opened up shows for such legends as Joe Cocker, Roy Orbison, The Fabulous T-Birds, Leon Russell, Bobby Bland and Buddy Guy. Throughout his career Scott has been a prolific song writer and has composed and released numerous CD's. Cold Hard Cash, produced by Dennis Walker of Robert Cray fame, all songs written by Scott and Dennis proved to be a highly successful CD. His CD's Live At Joey's, Chains of Love, Bad Case of the Blues and Icestorm have also been well received. All of his songs reflect Scott's love for the Blues and his talent as a writer.
