ABOUT THE ARTIST:
You can't teach the blues. It's not something that can be codified in music books or learned on YouTube. It goes much deeper than that and it comes from the inside. It's about the way the guitar strings are bent and the sound gets transmuted directly from a player's soul. It's simple at the end of the day. Either you've got it, or you don't. Jared James Nichols has definitely got it.
As a youth Jared obsessed over the guitar, practicing 12 hours a day and attending jam sessions with blues musicians much his senior. The work paid off. By his 21st birthday, he had logged over 500 gigs. He shared the stage with Buddy Guy, "Honeyboy" Edwards, "Big Jim" Johnson and opened for Derek Trucks and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
He garnered numerous accolades at the world-renowned Musicians Institute in L.A., winning the 2010 Jerry Horton guitar contest, the 2011 Les Paul tribute contest, and the 2011 "Outstanding Guitarist" award.
In 2012 he released the EP Old Glory & The Wild Revival. A breakout album steeped in blues grit and gusto and bombastic arena-sized rock 'n' roll. He is currently on tour supporting his acclaimed 2018 release, Black Magic.
