The latest album from Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame guitarist playing a blues groove laced with rock'n'roll, boogie and soul For his new album, "Zero-2-Sixty", Ellison wanted to strip things down and deliver a juke-joint-rockin' blues set to deepen the groove laid down on his #1 blues rock radio 2022 album, "There's Something About the Night".

His searing guitar and soul-drenched vocals make for a potent statement: respect for the tradition and a view to the future.

Over the course of 12 tracks, Scott evokes the best of the Midwest blues sound, a sort of Chicago-meets-Texas-meets-Oklahoma boogie to a full-tilt rockin' blues workout, plus a heaping measure of pure soul and a roots-driven authenticity that can't be faked.

Writing and recording from his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Ellison has brought in some very special guests and longtime friends to augment his primary backing and touring bands on this album.

Legendary producer Steve Barri (who produced hits for The Turtles, Four Tops, Lionel Richie, Rick James, Johnny Rivers, and others) worked his magic behind the board.

With an array of styles woven through one compelling package, "Zero-2-Sixty" expands on Ellison's storied legacy and supercharges a set that will no doubt enthrall both critics and fans.
