Nick Moss and the Flip Tops from Chicago
June 10, 2013
There’s a ‘Renaissance Man’ revival in the music industry these days, and Nick Moss has taken advantage of it. Unprecedented upheaval in the entertainment field has thrown open the doors of opportunity for artists with vision and courage to take it on. With seven critically-acclaimed traditional blues albums(as well two W.C Handy nominations), Moss continues to expand his repertoire. Nick Moss and the Fliptops captures what uncommonly hard-hitting, endlessly versatile bands do best: live high- energy performances of heart-felt blues, deeply rooted in postwar tradition with a heady infusion of contemporary energy. No matter how far Nick Moss travels, be it geographically or stylistically, the pull of Chicago and his roots there are never far from his mind. It’s where he started out on his musical journey;each new approach merely marks a stop along the way.
