Winner of three Downbeat Awards, Ulrich Ellison is 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, virtuosic and technically fluid. What underlies his sound is an ethereal quality that takes the listener on a musical journey. Ellison’s song catalogue spans from blues-based jams to pop-infused songs to progressive rock, held together by a charismatic presence, captivating guitar tone and a “take-no-prisoners” rhythm section. “The Tribe” is featuring wife Sabine Ellison on bass, drummer Joel Duhon and keyboardist Cole El-Saleh. They are winners of two Austin Music Awards in the category “Best Blues/Soul/Funk” (2015-2016) and “Best Guitar”. It was a very hot August of 2007, when the Ellisons moved to Texas with nothing more than a few guitars, a dog and three suitcases. Years of paying dues should follow, at every corner and every club of Austin, sometimes in more than 10 bands simultaneously. Living and breathing music 24/7, Ellison wrote his first album as a songwriter, “Lose Yourself” (2012) emerging as a group leader. He continued to gather a Tribe of likeminded musicians and fans around him, and started touring heavily in the US and Europe. Fast forward to 2017: Playing over 60 international shows in 11 countries, opening shows for 8-times Grammy winner Jose Feliciano (to be continued in 2018!), raving reviews in Germany, Holland and Norway, the Tribe returns to Antones “Home Of The Blues” to celebrate Ulrich’s 37th birthday, with friends Abra Moore, Tommy Shannon, Nakia, Alan Haynes, Mark Del Castillo, Alex Ruiz and more!
