Only one year after his last release, Tinsley Ellis gives us Midnight Blue, his second album on his Heartfixer Music Label and on this release we see him return to the gritty blues rock style that made everyone really take notice of him 20 years ago on Storm Warning. Tinsley has always been known for his aggressive fretboard work and also his emotional vocal style. This album delivers both in spades.
With at least 15 albums under his belt, Tinsley shows no signs of going soft. Midnight Blue proves that he can clearly still deliver some emotional blues and his signature searing guitar work. We can only hope that he stays on this track of an album a year on his own label.
