The Nick Moss Band — "an artist with important things to tell us," according to Blue Revue Magazine, on which he has appeared on the cover – will perform at NYC's Slake December 20 in anticipation of a new album 'Time Ain't Free' due in March, 2014. The Nick Moss Band's Here I Am album debuted at #2 on the Relix/Jamband Radio Charts in 2012. Moss' new song "I Want The World To Know" recently premiered at Billboard.com.
The Nick Moss Band features second guitarist and vocalist Michael Ledbetter, a descent of Huddie Ledbetter, better known as Lead Belly. An electrifying new talent, Ledbetter will be making his recorded debut on guitar and vocals on the forthcoming Moss album. The Slake show will find the Nick Moss Band hitting on all cylinders, hot off of a 36-date headlining tour.
The Nick Moss Band has been compared to Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, and Gary Clark Jr. Downbeat said, "He sings with confidence and heats up his guitar with enough imagination to transcend." All Music Guide has praised Moss' music as "memorable… played with spirit, drive, and swing."
Having spent time in the bands of blues legends Jimmy Dawkins, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith (The Legendary Blues Band), and Jimmy Rogers, Moss started his career in the deep Chicago blues tradition.
