The Mission welcomes back Nick Moss! If you missed his debut at The Mission, DON’T miss this show. Spectacular!!
Nick Moss has followed his most critically and commercially successful album to date with the release of “Here I Am,” a record already drawing raves from peers and mentors, like renowned bluesman Jimmy Thackery, who has praised this new set for “pushing the evolution of his music” with tunes that are “genuine and intense.”
“Here I Am” is bursting with personal growth and the kind of honesty fans have come to expect from Moss, whose unique approach to traditional Chicago blues on five studio records and two live albums resulted in multiple Blues Music Award nominations from the Blues Foundation. “Here I Am” is the confident statement from Moss the new path he forged on “Privileged” (also nominated for a BMA, but in the Blues-Rock category) was just the beginning. These 10 new originals combine to create the most diverse album of his career as he pushes his sound, songwriting, and lead guitar work further than ever before.
Moss is backed on “Here I Am” by keyboard/organist Travis Reed, Michael Ledbetter (guitar/backing vocals), and Patrick Seals (drums). Bass duties on the record were handled by Nik Skilnik and “Stumpy” Hutchkins but it will be Matthew Wilson on bass and backing vocals on the “Here I Am” tour, giving Moss his most exciting lineup yet.
