Jeff Ellis and 40 Days

Ellis paints from a wide palette. You can hear traces of the southern rock he loved as a kid, the small town storytelling of Steve Earle, the Anglo-Irish folk roots of Fairport Convention and the heartfelt yearning of Tom Petty.
On the album, Ellis is supported by expansive the band of brothers he has played and recorded with for many years in the area bounded by southeastern Ohio, Nashville, and the greater Charleston/Huntington not-so-metropolitan area of West Virginia. They include producer/engineer Eddie Ashworth, bass player Jimmy Lykens, and regional guitar stars Bud Carroll, Jeremy Short and Bobby Withers.
