Album Notes
Mega-killer, brain-damaging, massive 70s heavy guitar tribute disc by this amazing,
bad-ass, heavy guitar axeripper from California. Includes 15 tracks (77 min.) of awesome,
powerful, mind-blowing, retro-fied, guitar rock power trio madness of epic proportions.
"The Warriors Before Me" features phenomenal cover tracks/jams by the following guitar
rock legends: Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Frank Marino, Uli Roth (Scorpions), Ritchie
Blackmore (Rainbow), Pat Travers, Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Eddie Van Halen (V.H.),
Gary Moore, Michael Schenker (UFO), Johnny Winter, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Lonesome
Dave Peverett & Rod Price (Foghat), Angus Young (AC/DC) & Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin).

Brett Ellis is a bona-fide, legit, kick-ass, guitar hero who speaks the same language as the
"greats" and beyond, complete with superman-like strength & focus, attention to detail
and insane musical chops from hell which all add up equating to a beautiful overdose of
supreme guitar rock love and admiration. On the aptly titled "The Warriors Before Me"
disc, Brett Ellis digs deep and pays serious guitar rock tribute to his and the Grooveyard's
favorite 70s Guitar Heroes and, in this case, "Warriors." We picked an amazing collection
of deep, unpredictable awesome songs by these legendary guitarists that are rarely covered.
Staying true to the original versions with an abundance of interesting musical twists & turns,
Brett Ellis put's his own killer axemaster take on the tracks. Weighing in heavy with vast amounts
of incredible six string musical inspirations & influences, Brett Ellis is a true axemaster who
shines deeply with style, class and authority on the awesome "The Warriors Before Me" disc.

"The Warriors Before Me" disc also features the ass-kickin', talented rhythm section of
Rick Nash on Bass and Calvin Lakin on Drums - both awesome, seasoned, musicians of high
caliber who thoroughly nail down endless amounts of intense, bad-ass, rock solid, power trio
"groove machine" mojo from start to finish. Brett Ellis sings on many of the tracks; however,
to complete his "musical vision" of this disc, he called upon several outstanding guest vocalists
in the form of Jason Edwards, Rick Reed, Graham Heath & Allison Smith to land @ rock god vox.
Each vocalist is equally great and does an excellent job on these awesome 70s guitar rock anthems.

The Brett Ellis: "The Warriors Before Me" disc is steeped deep in the true glory of guitar rock majesty.
An essential, monumental, retro-70s heavy guitar tribute disc available on Grooveyard Records that
is Highly recommended to fans of serious, world-class, "old-school", total heavy guitar rock music.


And in the words of Brett Ellis about "The Warriors Before Me" disc:

Dear Friends and Inspired Music Listeners,

It is here, and with great pleasure, that i bring forth to you with sonic passion the impact,
inspiration and supreme significance the music of my developing years had on me both as
a youthful raging rocker and as an aspiring musician. Many of you have your won personal
significant story to accompany some of these songs. My hope is that all of you find as much
much inspiration, excitement and unexpected turns with these new versions as we did while
making them. Joe Romagnola and i spent many hours over a long stretch of time, going back
and forth on different song possibilities from the deep well from which to choose. These hours,
along with a very special request, is what brought us in the end to these final choices that only
scratch the surface. Furthermore, it was only with the help of my exceptional rhythm section
and bandmates Calvin and Rick; sonic master Steve “The Chef”; the amazing guest vocalists
Allison, Graham, Jay and Rick; along with Joe and Sami Romagnola laying down their famous
Nyxian:Drift graphic design that i was able to bring this dream to fuition. So a big thanks to
all of them as well as all my family and friends, and with no further ado, here is
"The Warriors Before Me"...Enjoy!!! (Brett Ellis - October-2016)
