"He's like a bluesy Paul Simon, but taller"
Coming up -
“Nigel Egg is a middle-class, middle-age Englishman who lives in Minneapolis USA with his wife and children. He pays on a mortgage, he drinks beer, he has an iPhone. That's what the liner notes from Nigel's latest CD “The Blues Is Personal”, say. Listen to the CD and you’ll also know he's a terrific vocalist, guitar and harmonica player. Listen to the ten originals out of the 12 songs and you know that Nigel Egg is also a tremendous lyricist and songwriter who uses humor to tell meaningful stories about today's world. “The Blues Is Personal” is an acoustic album. Nigel goes solo on three of the cuts. His band – trumpet, trombone, clarinet and violin (!) as well as the more traditional guitar, piano, bass and drums - contributes on the remaining songs. Let's hope our governing agencies don't get any ideas don't from “Tax on the Blues” which is the best selection in my book. I’ve got to admit that “Imagining You Naked” strikes awfully close to home, although I'm not alone as the lyrics tell me “Everybody does it”. How many musicians want to Jam Til the Day I Die”? ”
“Nigel Egg takes blues to a new level with unique subject matter, gritty vocals, and melodies that won't leave you alone--an incomparable effort by a rising blues artist!”
