We were excited to have blues legend Johnny Nicholas in the studio to record his first solo record in five years. After working on the Texas Sheiks project together, Johnny asked producer Bruce Hughes to help on a new batch of songs. Thus was born Future Blues.
Johnny has been a fixture of the blues scene for decades, playing for Asleep at the Wheel and others. He brought many of his friends in to perform on this record, including Cindy Cashdollar, Jimmie Vaughn, and Joel Guzman. The studio’s collection of vintage gear and amps was greatly appreciated, and helped create the sound you hear on the album.
Future Blues was released in 2011 to great reviews, and as of June had been picked up by over 50 radio stations nationwide.[button url=”/?page_id=293″ target=”_self” label=”NEXT PROJECT”]
