Soul provider Nigel Hall is in many ways an artist who needs no introduction. An in-demand sideman, hes built a mighty foundation of funk over the years onstage and in the studio with collaborators including the Warren Haynes Band, Jon Cleary, Soulive, Oteil Burbridge and Roosevelt Collier, Ledisi, the Soul Rebels, Lettuce and countless others. Legions of fans are already well in the know about Halls copious keyboard chops and powerful vocal style. But even to them, his Feel Music/Round Hill debut solo album will be a revelation a confirmation that Hall has stepped out front and center into a creative space to call his own.
Ladies & Gentlemen Nigel Hall, due out in digital format November 13th and vinyl November 27, captures the spirit of the songs that made Hall a musician. It was produced by Eric Krasno, guitarist and producer of music by a dizzying array of artists including Norah Jones, Justin Timberlake, Talib Kweli, Aaron Neville and Matisyahu. Halls original compositions, from the blissful, sunny 60s-style soul grooves of lead single Gimme A Sign and Never Gonna Let You Go to the teasing, R&B kiss of downtempo cuts like Too Sweet and Call on Me to show off a record collectors pitch-perfect knowledge and a lifelong fans passion for gritty, muscular rhythm and blues, funky dance floor rave-ups and sultry bedroom serenades.
