Godson of Soul was produced in Nashville by noted producer and songwriter Jon Tiven, who has produced all of Ellis' CDs to date. Guests on the album include the legendary Steve Cropper on guitar, the Memphis Horns' Wayne Jackson on trumpet and trombone and Bobby Womack.

Hooks' albums have garnered worldwide critical praise, and Godson of Soul promises to continue that trend. Ellis picks up where the great soul singers like Otis Redding, James Brown and Sam Cooke left off. He takes the passion of those great singers and updates it with a modern sound. The resulting musical gumbo has an instantly recognizable feel with a fresh thrill all it's own.

"Had Ellis Hooks released "Godson of Soul" during the 1980s, the album's funky, down-home music and profusion of sweaty pleading and testifying likely would have been described as "neo-soul." Today, however, that appellation means something more urban and of the moment. At this point, Hooks' 21st-century update of the rock and soul of Otis Redding, Van Morrison and Solomon Burke might strike some people as unfashionable or retro.
