CL's Hal Horowitz Recommends: The years 2020 and 2021 have kept Atlanta’s blues-rocking veteran off the road for the longest stretch in his 35-plus years of near non-stop touring. That didn’t stop him from releasing new and old songs on Facebook and other social networks, captured live in his basement, or recording a full new album Devil May Care.

From the venue:World renowned Southern blues-rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis — like every other musician — was caught off guard when the pandemic shutdown hit in March 2020. Ellis was forced to cancel the tour promoting his just-released album, Ice Cream In Hell, only six weeks into the 60-date run. This would be the first time in 40 years heâ€™d be off the road, and as he drove the 2400 miles home from Reno to Atlanta, he was already formulating his future plans.
