Nico Wayne Toussaint is bouncing back in a dazzling way towards a dynamic and groovy blues, at times even sticky with Rock and Louisiana influences. Guy Davis, Rod Piazza, Monster Mike Welch and David Maxwell invited themselves to the pagan celebration.! "Lonely Number is the record I have always wanted to do, a real blues album where originality takes over tradition with the consent and the support of the masters and the peers". Nico Wayne Toussaint is a unique french blues artist. He is one of the rare artists to have created, starting from Chicago blues, a completely personal vocal and performance style. His current musical universe goes way beyond his earlier influences. Nico was born on august 1973 in Toulon, France and started playing harmonica since the age of 18. He ran into the blues when he was 15, through Muddy Waters'record "Hard again" featuring James Cotton on harp. Since then, the wildness high energy of James Cotton's playing have always been his musical credo. With his explosive concerts and through his sheer talent he's managed to build a solid reputation in France and around the world (he tours regularly all over USA and Canada and live 6 months a year in Florida). His on-stage charisma is exceptional.
,,Herausgekommen sind bei
diesen Kooperationen groovende Songs,
die quasi auf eine Reise von Chicago ins
Mississippi-Delta, weiter in die Sümpfe
Louisianas und nach New Orleans, nach
Memphis, aber auch an die US-Westküste
mitnehmen." (Good Times, Juni / Juli 2012)
