Today we are sitting down with the amazing Jared James Nichols. Hailing from East Troy Wisconsin, Jared James Nichols is a guitarist of incredible caliber.
Nichols moved to Los Angeles in 2010. He won the Gibson Les Paul Tribute Contest as well as the Musicians Institute Most Outstanding Player Award. Nichols toured America and played various clubs/festivals including Sturgis Buffalo Chip, SXSW, Summerfest, and more. It was during this time he opened for Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top.
In 2015 he recorded the full-length release Old Glory & The Wild Revival with Warren and the legendary Eddie Kramer. He is rarely seen playing without his signature single-pickup Epiphone Les Paul Custom P90 nick-named Old Glory or his vintage original 1953 Gibson Les Paul nick-named Ole Red.
Nichols was named as a global ambassador for Gibson Guitars in June 2021. Jared is one of four guitarists to now be given this title, the other three being Slash, Lzzy Hale and Dave Mustaine.
