“It might not be Texas but I really like it.” (Country Music People magazine)
“James Ellis is at the forefront of the next generation of country music.” – Double J Radio
“On his noteworthy debut Ellis shows he can foot it with maverick and classicist contemporaries such as Daniel Romano and Zephaniah OHora.” — Rhythms Magazine
“James Ellis has his cowboy boots firmly in Melbourne and his heart in Austin Texas … and as good country music should, he's guaranteed to have you two steppin’ or cryin’ tears in your beer.” – Denise Hylands (Twang on 3RRR FM)
“James Ellis and the Jealous Guys, a rollicking, rag-tag collection of Melbourne veterans … owes as much to the honkytonk homeliness of Jerry Lee and country classicism of Merle Haggard as it does to anything of a more modernist bent.” – Rhythms magazine
