Landslide Records is proud and excited to announce its next release: TOUGH LOVE, an all-new set of soulful originals from veteran Georgia blues rocker Tinsley Ellis. Produced by Ellis, the album marks the third release from the label, Heartfixer Music, and features a compelling variety of tunes that will add to his reputation as one of the genre's most engaging and creative artists. In TOUGH LOVE, the versatile and critically acclaimed Ellis has crafted perhaps his most complete record, combining masterful guitar work and vocals with songs that both rock and soothe. Given some of Ellis' finest material to date, TOUGH LOVE presents a wide ranging set that moves effortlessly from the catchy opening track, "Seven Years," through the rollicking shuffle groove of "Midnight Ride," the Dylanesque "Hard Work," and a plaintive soul drenched ballad, "Should I Have Lied." Additional musicians, all of whom are longtime veterans of Delbert McClinton's band, include Nashville keyboard whiz Kevin McKendree (Brian Setzer), bassist Steve Mackey, and drummer Lynn Williams (John Hiatt).
