American Roots; Blues; Rock
Jun 5, 2018
Winner of three Downbeat Awards, Ulrich Ellison has been gaining international recognition as an electric guitar player and songwriter whose sounds and tones are on the verge of the blues tradition and contemporary rock. Ellison’s guitar style is both economic and focusing on the essential statement. What underlies his sound is an ethereal quality that takes the listener on a musical journey.
Among the various achievements rank a nomination for a European Blues Award 2016, 2 Austin Music Awards in the category “Best Blues/Soul/Funk” as well as the prestigious 2016 Award for “Best Guitar” as first European ever. Bridging the gap between Americana and European classical sensibilities, Ellison has carved out a unique voice on guitar. His latest 2021 release “Power Of Soul” is a Tribute to the late Jimi Hendrix featuring luminaries Tommy Shannon (SRV), David Grissom (John Mellencamp), Matt Schofield, Greg Koch and legendary Blues voice Chris Farlowe (Colosseum, Hamburg Blues Band). Since 2020, he is also the founder and CEO of the “Total Guitar Transformation” Academy, empowering guitarists worldwide to become the best version of themselves.
