Take some smokin rock n roll, combine it with some heavy blues, stir well…and you get Tinsley Ellis, the subject of this weeks Bayfront Blues Festival Artist Spotlight. Tinsley has mastered an art that has eluded so many artists, great blues infused with rock n roll..and he does it without tarnishing either rock n roll or blues. His is a perfectly executed blend of the both.

His CD “Speak No Evil” is a pleasure to listen to You’ll definitely hear his early influence of the British Invasion, namely Cream, Animals, Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix to name a few. You won’t go wrong with “Speak No Evil.”

I can hardly wait to see and hear him live, and we can do that together at  Bayfront Bluesfest August 10-12th. Tinsley takes the stage Sunday afternoon August 12th. For the  complete artist lineup, tickets,  schedule and more,  just click here.

I’ve included my full unedited interview with Tinsley Ellis in this post. Enjoy!
