The Skinny: 22-year-old guitar prodigy Jared James Nichols is an emerging singer/songwriter and killer blues soul power guitarist who just released his first studio EP Old Glory & The Wild Revival this week (July 23) on Swing House Quality Recordings. Check out the glorious rock below!

Blues and classic rock n roll embodied, Jared is a very welcome addition to the new wave of classic rock & R&B influenced acts like Gary Clark Jr., Vintage Trouble and The Stone Foxes with a work ethic and charisma that is virtually unmatched. Jared gets down to the nitty-gritty with songs that hit close to home, touching on the timeless blues aesthetic in every way possible while still managing to put his own thoughtful twist on it.
