BILLBOARD PREVIEWS SOUL SINGLE "I WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW"
DESCENDENT OF LEAD BELLY, BAND MEMBER MICHAEL LEDBETTER ADDS FIREY SECOND LEAD VOCAL/GUITAR
Nick Moss Band readies its new gumbo of Chicago soul, funk, blues, jam band music, and rock & roll with 'I Want the World The Know' (March 18 / Blue Bella Records), marking the tenth album by bandleader, songwriter, and groove master Nick Moss and a new musical high water mark.
Billboard.com debuted "I Want the World To Know." Billboard's Lars Brandle writes, "Moss' class shines through in "I Want the World To Know," which builds into a showcase of his fluency on the six-string."
Other praise has come to the band on a 36-date national winter tour. KEXP's Greg Vandy called the band "great" late last year. UT San Diego praised Moss' "high-octane" sound, continuing, "Their forthcoming new album, "Time Ain’t Free," finds the group continuing to expand, stylistically, by incorporating gospel, boogie, Southern-rock and more."
Photos, new album stream, and more are here.
Elmore Magazine has called Moss "one of the best guitarists on today's scene" while Blurt Magazine has stated, "Nick Moss keeps tradition alive while moving his music in new directions."
Michael Ledbetter makes his Nick Moss Band lead vocal recording debut on this album and it marks the arrival of a fiery new vocal and guitar talent. Ledbetter is a descendent of the legendary Lead Belly.
Previously, The Nick Moss Band rocketed to #2 on the Relix/Jamband Radio Charts in 2012 with 'Here I Am.'
