JamBase Exclusive Premiere | Nigel Hall Shares Track From Solo Debut

We're just a few weeks away from the long-awaited release of keyboardist Nigel Hall's debut studio album, Ladies & Gentlemen… Nigel Hall. The LP is due out in digital format November 13 and vinyl November 27 via Feel Music with a pre-order available now through Pledge Music and iTunes. Today, we're excited to premiere a track off the Eric Krasno-produced album.

The keyboardist burst onto the scene with his always-impressive, uplifting performances with Lettuce. He has gone on to collaborate with Warren Haynes, Ledisi, Jon Cleary, Soulive, Oteil Burbridge, Roosevelt Collier, the Soul Rebels and many others. Nigel is a human musical encyclopedia of soul music, so it speaks highly of Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand The Rain" that the 1974 hit is one of just ten songs the keyboardist chose to record for his solo debut. Hall shows off multi-octave range on his silky smooth vocal delivery of "I Can't Stand The Rain" over a thumping, bass- heavy and horn-infused arrangement of the song.

OKP Premiere: Nigel Hall Shines Bright On The Soaring New Single “Don’t Change For Me”

Nigel Hall is something of a modern soul marvel, garnering the praises of some of the best in the biz for his soaring vox and an unflinching command for the soul music canon as a musician, songwriter and arranger. He’s shared stages with many of the game’s most formidable (okay) players, including Questlove, Eric Krasno, The Nth Power and many of your favorite crafters of modern-day soul.

With his forthcoming solo record Ladies & Gentleman…Nigel Hall well on the way, it’s time to roll out the red carpet for your boy and put your ears to some slick and sweet new frequencies. OKP is happy to bring you the premiere of “Don’t Change For Me,” a stone-cold-groove built over slinky guitar licks and a running bass line, anchored by a diamond-strong knock on the drums and, of course, Hall’s brilliant squalls, providing a much-needed update on southern-fried soul a la Booker T. & The MGs (also known as the Stax sound). Hall’s new record is slated to arrive on November 13th with high-powered features from some of those aforementioned giants, as well as 8-string guitar maven Charlie Hunter and NOLA great Ivan Neville.
