Jelly Ellington - Stand Back

Jonathan "Jelly" Ellington, who has called Texas home for the past nine years, has been a fearless American guitarist, singer, and songwriter since he first picked up the instrument at the age of seven. Jelly, who is originally from Asheville, North Carolina, has really discovered a delicious fusion between Texas blues and his Appalachian origins. He has performed with Grammy Award winners and Texan legends, so it's no surprise that he was chosen as one of the Top 10 "Best Guitarists" at the Austin Chronicle's Austin Music Awards in both 2018 and 2019. 

Jelly recently released his full-length sophomore album, "Not All Who Wander Are Lost" and this is his new single, called Stand Back. Give it a go by clicking on the Spotify player below and don't forget to follow Jelly Ellington on social media as well (links below). The song has a tasty guitar riff, great bass lines and very inspired drums. The vocals are clean but very energetic, especially during the  (catchy) chorus, very well performed. The song has also an extended great guitar solo and an overall amazing production, I totally recommend it, click on the link below!
