We were honored to appear on a recent episode of Don Odell’s Legends television show. It lives up to its name and has featured a number of terrific blues and roots artists over the years such as Joe Louis Walker, Guitar Shorty, Pat Travers and The Royal Southern Brotherhood which includes Devon Allman, Cryil Neville and Mike Zito.

A dear friend recently forwarded this video from a television performance a few years back. Peter King and Billy Klock join me on this version of ”Double Trouble” written by the great Otis Rush:

Here’s what Federico Borra said about his beautiful painting “Donna Rossa”which is the cover of Torch Tones:
“Donna Rossa is a woman who usually lives in the painting. Sometimes she leaves it, and appears in a dream. When you try to catch her you wake up and she’s back in the painting, not being able to remember her face.”
From the Nov/Dec 2011 issue of Blues Revue:
“…Nomad boasts powerful vocals and guitar prowess as well as some imaginative contemporary blues song crafting…Whether wrangling slide or letting his fingers do the talking, Nomad proves again to be a consummate singer, songwriter and player, and a qualified bluesman of the highest order…”
To listen to my new interview regarding “Torch Tones” with Mark Wade on A1Blues.com please follow link below:
From the April 2012 issue of DOWNBEAT Magazine regarding Torch Tones:
“…his seventh and best album…his vocals show real emotional engagement…The high value of Nomad’s guitar playing is no more obvious than when he aggressively furrows the rich soil of his cranked-up Delta blues, ‘Poetry in Motion.’ Texture and nuance aren’t lost to sheer force.”
