Ellis Hooks already has an album released in Europe that won over the hearts and minds of the international Soul Music set. The music he makes has always been an amalgamation of genres - Soul, Rock, Blues, call it what you will - and as an artist he's not easy to pigeonhole. Ellis will be the first to tell you that his music is a hybrid of his originality and his many influences, and what comes out may not fit into the square peg of today's music scene.

"...The staggeringly good soul/R&B/blues vocalist is a big seller across the water (Europe) and this North American release shows why: The slippery wah-wah, stop-time chorus of the title track; the slightly weird Controlling Picasso with the line 'Put some blue into your life'; the 60s-ish Holding Out My Love; the punchy duet with veteran Freddie Scott on Man of the Blues. Hooks cowrote all the material with producer guitarist Jon Tiven and shows a wide variety of influences, probably gleaned from his years bumming around the world after running away from home at 16. It's both a fine debut and a signal of good things to come." - Norman Provencher, Ottawa Citizen
