I will be performing a live concert with my daughters Daryl and Kloey on Saturday night November 7th, at 6:30 p.m. at Brew Unto Others Coffee Shop in Lamar Colorado. I feel lucky to be the father of such talented musicians. The girls have performed live at various places including the Cheyenne Mountain State Park Amphitheatre and the weekly concerts in the park in Rocky Ford. They will be performing music from Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Lorde, Kansas, The Lumineers and Johnny Cash, just to name a few. This performance will truly showcase the love of music that these girls have. We would love to have you come out and see us if you can.


 
Into The Canyon is on Pandora

 
The Album "Under A Monsoon Sky" is available here at lexnichols.com, iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby and various other retailers. The album was composed in conjunction with high resolution thunderstorm and rain audio files recorded by Gordon Hempton, The Sound Tracker. The album has a New Age-Nature based feel to it in combination with Native American flute, acoustic guitar, piano and soundscapes.

  • “You're either on the bus or off the bus.” ~ Ken Kesey

The Metaphor of Being on the Bus - On the Great Bus Trip of 1964, Ken Kesey had a problem. Every time they had to stop for gas or something, some of the Pranksters would wander off and whenever it was time to leave, at least one Prankster could not be found. Hence the metaphor, "You're either on the bus or off the bus." Of course, no outsider had any idea what Kesey was talking about when he said that, because you had to have been on the bus that summer to get it.

Official video for "The Tire Swing"

The New album "The Path Less Traveled" has been received with warm welcomes. This has been a three year "work in progress" but also a labor of love. Several of the songs are played in a non-traditional flat on the lap style similar to a steel guitar but I do not use a slide. I am also proud to say guitarist Tom Knowlton contributed pedal steel guitar on the opening track “Come With Me”. A very special thanks to everyone who has purchased the album and thank you all for your support.
