12. Nigel Hall
Nigel announced that he was leaving the Nth Power last March. "Ever since I've been around, I've always been a special guest of somebody's band... all I've ever really wanted in my life is to be a part of a band that was my own," he explained in an interview about his departure. With the time off, Hall was able to spend time on this dream and make it a reality. In November, he released Ladies and Gentlemen... Nigel Hall, produced by Soulive/Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno, featuring a number of notable sit-ins, including spots from Questlove, Ivan Neville and more. The product is outstanding and we can't wait to hear more of the pianist/singer/songwriter.
