The Nick Moss Band's 'Time Ain't Free' has earned career-best raves for the Chicago band, which recently headlined to a wildly enthusiastic crowd at Mercury Lounge in NYC. 'Time Ain't Free' also rocketed to #4 on the Living Blues radio chart, #17 on the Relix radio chart, and #2 on the Roots Music Report Blues chart. Here's what we're reading:
"Check out some excellent players of a younger generation who look set
to carry on in the exploratory spirit of the Allmans for decades to
come. [Moss] sings with a personable twang, and issue commanding solos
that are every bit the equal of anything the Allmans' great Warren
Haynes can summon."
- Mac Randall, NY Observer, March 28, 2014
"Moss' class shines through [as he] reaches deeper into soul, funk, and rock ‘n’ roll.'
- Lars Brandle, Billboard.com, September 26, 2013
"Nothing less than a powerful gumbo of Chicago soul, funk, blues, jam and rock and roll."
- Damian Fanelli, Guitar World, February 6, 2014
- Greg Vandy, KEXP, November 20, 2013
- Tavis Smiley, March 1, 2014, PRI
"A high-water mark for the Chicago-based band... the album's 14 tracks
will have you tapping your feet along and dropping your jaw at Moss's
many blistering guitar solos."
- Scott Bernstein, Jambase, March 5, 2014
"Scorching blues rock guitar hero."
- Michael O'Keefe, NY Daily News, March 15, 2014
"A giant talent."
- Dan Ackroyd, Elwood's Bluesmobile, March 22, 2014
"Southern-fried rock…a vintage, boogie-filled slice of rock & roll featuring Moss' scintillating guitar playing."
- Kevin Korber, Elmore, February 24, 2014
- George Vargas, UT San Diego, November 7, 2013
- Hal Horowitz, Creative Loafing, December 4, 2013
"A defiant R&B swagger that signals a stylistic vision for the future."
- Mark Uricheck, Living Blues, April, 2014
