Ulrich Ellison on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm an Austin-based guitarist, recording artist. Me and my band "The Tribe" tour all year in the US and EU. When I'm at home I work with other artists. I have produced songs and albums for various artists in different styles, ranging from full band live sessions to full sequencer-based arrangements.

I am a classically trained producer and guitarist and have been working professionally for over 15 years. As a guitarist, I have won several prizes including 3 Downbeat Awards for "Best Rock/Pop/Blues Soloist" in the years 2008-10
