Johnny Nicholas: Mistaken Identity (LP)

(Valcour) 10 tracks
The musical career of former Asleep At The Wheel frontman Johnny Nicholas is well documented, but his connection with South Louisiana music and culture and the influence it had on his storied musical career is not as well known:

'It all started out with the blues for me. Once that bug bit me, I was infected with a love of what is now called Americana or roots music. No matter what you call it, it all started out with the blues and all of it’s musical manifestations.

Southwest Louisiana and Texas is where where it all came together for me as a young man-the melting pot, or Gumbo pot for all the music I loved. My time in Basile, LA and the surrounding area throughout the seventies is where I grew up musically during the time I spent there with Link Davis Jr, Nathan Abshire and Dewey Balfa , who always showed up fiddle in hand and said ‘Hey Johnny, let’s get dirty!’ That’s exactly what we did whether it was blues, Cajun, R&B or Honky Tonk music and it all made perfect sense in that environment.

This album represents a homecoming, or coming full circle for meby getting back to the place where it all started. Joel Savoy was a natural and perfect fit for how I wanted to record these new songs live in his wonderful little studio outside of Eunice and just down the road from Basile. I was delighted when he and Phillip LaFargue asked me to be on their label Valcour Records. Enjoy the musical journey—we sure did!”

Johnny Nicholas

“Johnny Nicholas is one of the best bluesmen ever, black or white.”
~ STEPHEN BRUTON
Make no mistake: Johnny Nicholas knows from the blues. His credentials? Impeccable. Conviction? Immeasurable. And chops? If an instrument’s got strings, keys, or reeds, rest assured he can play the hell out of it. He’s also a consummate songwriter and no slouch of a singer, either, blessed with a warm, toasty growl of a voice that can roll from rumble to croon and back again with seductive ease. In the words of kindred musical spirit Marcia Ball, he “writes instant classics and sings them to break your heart and rock your soul,” while no less of an authority than the late, great B.B. King once observed, “[Johnny] learned from some of the same guys I did and he sings and plays the real down-home blues.”

A lot of those “same guys,” in fact, welcomed a young Johnny Nicholas into their homes, treating him not just as a wide-eyed acolyte of the blues, but as one of their own: “They took me in because they thought a lot more of me than I thought they did, obviously,” he marvels today, “but then later on I realized that I just have this gift, you know? I can reach deep down in those blues and get way down to the bottom like those guys. And they treated me like family.”

But still, there’s something about the term “bluesman” that just doesn’t quite fit Nicholas. To quote the aforementioned Marcia Ball again, he’s far more of an “innovative traditionalist.” Some might call that an oxymoron, but for Nicholas, it’s a point of direction that’s given him a sense of purpose ever since his mentor Robert Lockwood Jr. — the stepson of Robert Johnson — set him straight way back in his salad days. “I got to spend a lot of time with him when I was really young, and, he admonished me early on, saying, ‘Hey, why you wanna be playing Little Walter and Muddy Waters songs? You don’t need to be copying other people’s songs. You’re Johnny Nicholas — play your own stuff, write your own stuff,’” Nicholas recalls with a smile. “And that really stuck with me.”
