Andy T-Nick Nixon Band - Numbers Man (CD)€20,00
Numbers Man, the latest release from the Andy T – Nick Nixon Band, is a sterling display of musicianship at it’s highest.
Guitarist Andy T arrived in Nashville from Southern California several years ago and teamed up with local blues and R&B legend guitarist/vocalist Nick Nixon in 2011. As Blues Underground Network said, ’Simply put, Andy T and James ’Nick’ Nixon have quickly risen to the top of many people’s list of Great Collaborations.’ Andy T’s jazz-tinged guitar style is influenced by T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Magic Sam, and Albert Collins among others, yet it remains his own. Andy has toured internationally with blues greats Guitar Shorty and Smokey Wilson, and has performed with a long list of major blues artists around the country. The velvet-voiced Nixon, whose singing recalls Jimmy Witherspoon and Billy Eckstine, was part of Nashville’s thriving blues scene in the 60’s. He was a longtime member of The New Imperials, recorded for Chess Records in the 70’s and has performed with many of the top blues and R&B artists in the world.
Andy T-Nick Nixon Band - Livin` It Up (CD)€18,00
The blues has a history of great collaborations. Now it’s time to add Andy T and James ”Nick” Nixon to thatvenerable list thanks to the red clay covered roots of Nick’s dynamic voice and Andy’s bold, vibrant tones and equally rooted guitar style. Nick is one of those amazing artists that rarely surface today. This velvet voiced singer was born and raised in Nashville and was part of the thriving Jefferson Street blues scene of the ’60s. Nick was a Chess Records recording artist in the ’70s and is a key figure in today’s reviving Nashville blues scene. ”Andy T” Talamantez was born and raised in Southern California, and relocated to Nashville in 2008. His guitar style is influenced by T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Magic Sam and Albert Collins among others, yet it remains his own. After meeting James ”Nick” Nixon, and watching him perform, Andy knew that they would make an unstoppable combination. And they proved that with 2013’s Drink Drank Drunk. The album, produced by Texas blues legend Anson Funderburgh, has been embraced by hundreds of radio stations, reaching number two on Sirius/XM radio’s million-subscriber ”B.B. King’s Bluesville” and climbing the Living Blues chart. Critics have praised their tasteful and authentic approach in the Nashville Tennessean, Elmore, Living Blues, Blues Bytes and a host of other mainstream and specialty publications. And – most important – the fans have fallen in love with their dynamic, rooted live performances, making Andy, Nick and their backing quintet of veteran musicians an in-demand act at festivals and clubs across the world. These include Arkansas’ historic King Biscuit Festival and the Moulin Blues Festival in Oslo, Norway, and such prestigious venues as Phoenix’s Rhythm Room, B.B. King’s on Memphis’ Beale Street, Biscuits & Blues in San Francisco and Knuckleheads in Kansas City, Missouri.
