“Johnny Nicholas is an extremely engaging innovative traditionalist. [He] writes instant classics and sings them to break your heart and rock your soul.”
– Marcia Ball
When it comes to Americana Roots Music and especially the Blues, the late great Stephen Bruton knew what he was talking about. Those who knew him knew that he always got to the point. His description of his long time friend and musical comrade in arms is succinct and quite a heady compliment, but then, Johnny Nicholas is an amazing talent.
For four decades Johnny’s consummate musicianship and vocal skills have graced live music scenes across the country and abroad. He has toured, performed and recorded with many true blues and Americana Roots Music legends including:
Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Lockwood Jr., Johnny Shines, Big Walter Horton . . .
