Nick Moss Band Return With 'I Want the World To Know': Exclusive Listen
Grant Kessler

Bluesman Nick Moss is back with new music, an extensive national tour and the promise of a fresh, full-length album early next year.

The former Chicago blues purist’s Nick Moss Band has released “I Want the World To Know,” lifted from his upcoming album “Time Ain't Free.”

The renowned guitarist, bandleader and songwriter honed his craft with a class of blues legends. Prior to forming his own band, he played alongside the likes of Jimmy Dawkins, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and Jimmy Rogers.

He also produced the “Midnight Blues” album by the great Magic Slim, who passed away earlier this year at 75.

Moss' class shines through in “I Want the World To Know,” which builds into a showcase of his fluency on the six-string. Moss reaches deeper into soul, funk, and rock ‘n’ roll on “Time Ain’t Free,” which is slated for release next March. The artist has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the album.

The new recordings will also launch the talents of Michael Ledbetter, who makes his debut on second guitar and vocals. Ledbetter is a relative of folk and blues musician Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter.
