A beautiful lady who can sing and play guitar – what a perfect combination! Feels Like Family has: Delta, Country, slow songs, Chicago-like electric guitar, acoustic, slide and rock. I liked this CD/DVD combo a lot, the music is pure and touched me. I found the songs to have a great deal of depth – vocally, Ellis is masterful. Not a bad song on the CD, songs #2, 3 and 7 were my favorite tracks. This is a must, must have. Buy two – keep one and give one to a friend!

Ciao’ for now, peace.
