Jet-fueled riveting guitar fills Skyline Drive

Scott Ellison - Skyline Drive

Scott Ellison, born in 1954, in Tulsa, Oklahoma began playing with others, such as country singer Jesseca James (Conway Twitty's daughter) in 1977 and renowned bluesman Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown in 1981.

By the middle of the 1980s he had relocated to Los Angeles, with his blues guitar, and started playing with some great older bands — the Box Tops, the Shirelles, the Coasters, and Peaches & Herb.

By the 1990s, Scott went out on the limb and started creating his own music, forming his own band and was opening for the likes of Joe Cocker, the Fabulous T-Birds, and Buddy Guy.

Now he’s everywhere, noted for his rasp, over the top blues riffs and his prolific writing. He’s recently released Skyline Drive, with Chris Campbell.

“Most of the songs on the album I co-wrote with my good friend and fellow Tulsan, Chris. Chris and I had been meaning to sit down and do some writing together for a long time and when we finally did, the songs just started coming together,” Scott said. “Then came the recording, I’ve known most of the musicians and engineers we worked with together and having a good time doing what we love to do. So we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.”

“Mission accomplished, thanks Jim.”
