You can´t teach the blues. It´s not something that can be codified in music books or learned on YouTube. It goes much deeper than that and it comes from the inside. It´s about the way the guitar strings are bent and the sound gets transmuted directly from a player´s soul. It´s simple at the end of the day. Either you´ve got it, or you don´t. JARED JAMES NICHOLS has definitely got it. The Wisconsin-born, Los Angeles-based singer, writer and guitarist´s new EP Old Glory & The Wild Revival channels blues grit and gusto through bombastic arena-size rock ´n´ roll. It´s raw, raucous and righteously real.
