Wisconsin-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and blues guitarist, JARED JAMES NICHOLS — famous for his shimmering guitar shapes, fizzed up rhythms and grit-fed voice that’s just the right-side of charcoaled bourbon — returns with a new album “Black Magic.”
RAW RAMP thought his debut album “Old Glory and the Wild Revival” was delivered with “Style, punch and authority...” and was “Heavy, hot and magnificent…” so we expect great things from the new recording.
“Black Magic” features 10 new tracks and will be released by Listenable Records on Friday 27th October.
Recording was done at The Boneyard in Boston as well as Johnny Depp’s home studio in Los Angeles and produced and co-written by Tony Perry and Jared James Nichols.
The album includes current single “Last Chance” ( see below) — a maximum overdrive, full-tilt steamboat of a song with resounding guitars, electrifying riffs and more stamina than a hundred cresty stallions.
“It’s easily the hardest-hitting song I ever wrote...” Jared says.
“I completely let it all hang out and went wild. Even the guitar solo is off the wall, blazing fast, and absolutely crazy. I needed to set the bar high for the new record and come out with a bang.”
Over the past four years Jared has built up a solid reputation as a stunning heavy-edged blues rock act and has shared stages with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zaak Wylde, Glenn Hughes, Walter Trout, Blue Oyster Cult, UFO and Saxon.
