Nick Moss Feeling "Privileged"
Here's a new February 2010 interview with bluesman Nick Moss. Nick, who's become one of the reigning kings of vintage, no-frills Chicago blues over the last decade, is ready to unleash a new CD on March 16th called "Privileged." The new disc, which is a bit of a departure from the traditional blues fare Nick's been mining to perfection the last several years, notably features a powerful, thick guitar presence. Nick's playing homage to the music that first inspired him as a budding musician - everyone from Free's Paul Kossoff to Jimmy Page made an impact on Nick, and these influences shine through on the new disc. A little less blues, the rock factor turned up, the new album features the riff-heavy "Born Leader," a funky take on the Buffalo Springfield classic "For What It's Worth," and the gutsy southern vibe of the slide-drenched "Georgia Redsnake." Nick chats here about the production, songwriting, and direction of the new album. He also talks a bit about his past, including his gigs with Jimmy Rogers and Jimmy Dawkins, as well as his introduction to a life of music - via a Little Charlie & The Nightcats gig. Nick goes on to talk a bit about his fantastic business model - Blue Bella Records, run together with his wife Kate. Thanks to Nick for the great conversation, and make sure you check him out at www.nickmoss.com.
