Buffalo Nichols (Carl “Buffalo” Nichols) has signed with Fat Possum Records. The news marks the label’s first solo blues signing in almost 20 years which will issue the Austin, TX-based musicians’ self-titled debut album on October 15th. Accompanying the news are both the EP’s lead single, “Lost & Lonesome,” which can be heard below, and confirmation of some extensive 2021 touring, including support for Drive-By Truckers in early October.

Commenting on the single, Nichols shares, “‘Lost & Lonesome’ was inspired by years of traveling alone, wandering city streets looking for a place to call home maybe for a night, maybe forever. It takes you back to those moments in life when you must leave home either physically or figuratively—going somewhere unfamiliar and on your own. The soundtrack to a wandering soul. An ode to loneliness. When you see a wandering soul, all you can do is wonder how they got there. This song gives a glimpse into the mind of that traveler looking for a friend and a place to call home.”

He further expands on his music: “Part of my intent, making myself more comfortable with this release, is putting more Black stories into the genres of folk and blues. Listening to this record, I want more Black people to hear themselves in this music that is truly theirs.”
