BUDDY GUY: "HE ALWAYS WORKS HARD TO PLEASE THE AUDIENCE"
GUITAR WORLD: "A POWERFUL GUMBO OF CHICAGO SOUL, FUNK, BLUES, JAM MUSIC AND ROCK AND ROLL"
The Nick Moss Band has announced its hometown album release show for
'Time Ain't Free' at Buddy Guy's Legends on February 28. Born and raised
in Chicago, Moss leads a potent band that has earned the notice of Guy
himself, who says, "He always works hard to please the audience." Guitar
World concurred, posting the scorching guitar-driven new song "No
Reason" and calling the NMB's music "nothing less than a powerful gumbo
of Chicago soul, funk, blues, jam music and rock and roll."
Second lead vocalist Michael Ledbetter, a second cousin of the great
Lead Belly, is also a Chicago native, though he spent eight years in the
opera scene before joining the Nick Moss Band.
Moss apprenticed with Chicago blues luminaries Willie "Big Eyes" Smith,
Jimmy Dawkins, and Jimmy Rogers. Over a twenty-year career in Blues, he
has achieved worldwide notoriety as a torchbearer of Chicago Blues.
'Time Ain't Free' marks his tenth album as bandleader and a milestone in
the Chicago music scene.
Billboard.com posted the gospel-infused love song "I Want The World To
Know" from 'Time Ain't Free.'
