Jared James Nichols is currently in the midst of a fall tour in support of his latest self-titled studio album, Jared James Nichols available via Black Hill Records HERE. The new album was recorded live at Blackbird Studios in Nashville with nothing more than a Gibson Les Paul slung over Jared’s shoulder, a warm amp turned all the way up, and a hot microphone on and ready. Jared churns out the kind of rock that rips, roars, and rolls without filter or apology. Standing at a staggering 6 foot 5 inches tall, Jared delivers a one-two punch of gritty vocals straight from the gut and incendiary fret fireworks. The album, produced engineered and mixed by Eddie Spear (Zach Bryan, Slash, Rival Sons), marks the third full-length offering from the Nashville-based multi-talent and the truest representation of his authentic rock and blues-inspired sound.
