About Jared James Nichols
Jared grew up minutes away from The Alpine Valley Resort, where Stevie Ray Vaughan performed his last show. And it seems that his mission is to help keeping the blues alive. He said he wants to get people excited and to feel like anything is possible in this music.
On his Facebook page, Jared said he wants people "to know great blues rock exists. If I can give someone the same inspiration I was blessed with, I've done something right."
Right on! Here at PMT we're big fans of blues so it'll be a pleasure to have him at one of our shops. If you're in Leeds on 24th June, don't miss out on this great opportunity to see him in-store!
"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
