Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and Gibson ambassador Jared James Nichols has announced his self-titled new album will be released on January 13th via Black Hill Records.
As with all his releases, Jared plays guitar and takes on lead vocals to deliver greased lightning guitar playing and blue bravado singing. Jared‘s roots have always been firmly planted in the hard-rocking blues, and this album is a testament to his rebellious spirit to drive these finely crafted songs. Songs like “Easy Come, Easy Go,” “Hard Wired,” and “Bad Root” offer big riffs and even bigger grooves. Link to pre-order Jared‘s self-titled new album at THIS LOCATION
