James Ellis & The Jealous Guys

James Ellis and the Jealous Guys bring their full-band honky tonk show to Castlemaine for the first time.

James Ellis and the Jealous Guys is a country band from Melbourne, Australia.

In 2017, they released two singles (Have You Ever Seen Her and Xmas Lights), played at the Out on the Weekend festival and supported international acts, the Deslondes, Lillie Mae and Tomato Tomato.

The band kicked off 2018 with four sets at New Year’s Evie festival and followed this with the release of a third single, Valentine’s Day.

Their debut album, It Ain’t Texas (But It Ain’t Bad), recorded and mixed by Roger Bergodaz (Lost Ragas) and mastered by Adam Dempsey, will be released through Blind Date Records in 2018.

“The track [Have You Ever Seen Her] is pure classic country with Ellis’ voice feeling like it’s been pulled directly from the 70s.” (Timber and Steel)
