NORD LIVE: Nigel Hall Sessions
Press Release, Stockholm 2021-05-17
We are very excited to present this lovely new live session featuring the New Orleans-based soul maestro Nigel Hall!
Soul provider Nigel Hall is an artist who needs no introduction. Throughout his career, he’s built a mighty foundation of funk, onstage and in the studio, proving himself to be a true student of the music.
He brought his band to Blue Dream Studios in LA to record this brilliant new session of energetic funk. First out is a song called "Wake Me" featuring Steve Swatkins (keys), Sam Brawner (Drums) Nick Campbell (Bass) and John Notto (Guitar). This session was recorded live at Blue Dream Studios in LA, January 2021 and the remaining episodes will be published in the coming months.
Nigel Hall grew up in Washington, D.C., in a highly musical family. His fingers touched the keys before he was even five years old and his ears were always wide open.ace of b “I grew up with records,” he said. “That’s why I’m obsessed. My father had a vast collection. I’d be in third grade with my Walkman and everyone’s listening to Ace of Base, and I’m listening to Return to Forever, Chick Corea’s fusion project with Stanley Clarke.
His unique sound, built upon pages torn out of the golden-ages of R&B, funk and soul, have made him the musician he is today; an accomplished vocalist, keyboardist, studio musician, and member of the GRAMMY-nominated funk-jazz-soul-hip-hop-psychedelic-jam- experimental titans Lettuce.
Nigel Hall puts his skills to good use, carving out a creative space to call his own with his second album Spiritual, set to release July 16th, 2021 on Regime Music Group. With this release, Nigel Hall is ready to follow his musical spirit into uncharted territory.
