Alligator Records Announces Tinsley's Debut Solo Acoustic Album

On Friday, February 9, 2024, Alligator Records will release Naked Truth, the first-ever solo acoustic album from world-renowned Atlanta-based guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis. The  new album is steeped in the folk blues traditions of Muddy Waters, Skip  James, Son House, Robert Johnson and even Leo Kottke. To the casual  fan, this might seem to be a new direction, but for Ellis, it’s an  extension of his music, as he taps into the raw essence of the blues.


“This  is a record I’ve always wanted to make, and one that my longtime fans  have been asking for,” he says, noting he’s included an acoustic  mini-set in his concert performances for years. In the last 12 months,  Ellis has already performed over 100 solo shows, many as co-bills with  his Alligator label-mate Marcia Ball. “I’m having so much fun playing  these shows,” he says.


On Naked Truth (his 21st album), Ellis swaps his blistering, guitar-fueled full band workouts  for equally passionate, soul-searching acoustic folk blues. His famed  guitar chops and musical creativity are on full display throughout the  album’s 12 songs, including nine newly written originals. 


Naked Truth was produced by Ellis, with the foot-stomping cover of Son House’s Death Letter Blues produced by Atlanta roots musician Eddie 9V. The album was recorded  live in the studio using Ellis’ beloved 1969 Martin D-35 (a gift from  his father) and his 1937 National Steel O Series guitars. Whether  intricately fingerpicking the Martin or playing hair-raising slide on  the National Steel, Ellis delivers each song with unvarnished intimacy.
