“Oklahoma guitar man Scott Ellison is out to take no prisoners with his new release Walkin’ Through Fire on JSE Records. This strong fifteen song set is a dance party disc meant to get listeners up on their feet. Each tracks features Ellison’s fiery fret work and raspy howl , who at times sounds like a mix of Delbert McClinton meets Bob Dylan...Walking Through the Fire is a fine collection of rockin’ blues, and soul from an under the radar artist.”
