I have just received notification that my album “Into the Canyon” has been nominated for a Native American Music Award. The song “Weeping Rock” (Gwendolyn’s song) was the submission song chosen from the Into the Canyon album. This year I will be taking my daughters so they can experience the awards show live with myself and my wife. Also, the album "Under a Monsoon Sky" was just nominated for an Indian Summer Music Award. This awards show is held on September 9th and 10th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the Nammy’s are September 17th in New York so we have chosen to go to the Nammy’s.

Here is a link to cast your vote for the Native American Music Awards. If it does not work try this Native American Music Awards. “Weeping Rock” (Gwendolyn's song) is one of my favorite songs because the song was composed for a good friend of mine in memory of his wife who lost her battle with cancer. Give it a listen and cast your vote because at this point the public voting determines the winners. I want to personally thank everyone who has helped me and supported me along the way in my musical journeys. Thank you to everyone who comes to my shows and buys my music, something like this is not possible without all of you. I also want to thank Doug Eagle at Eagle Sound in Durango, Colorado for doing such a great job with mixing and mastering on my albums, and the wonderful craftsmen, Butch Hall FlutesPat Haran Flutes, and Coyote Oldman who make the flutes that I play.

Thank you all so much,

Lex Nichols

Lex Nichols and Vincent Gearhart will be hosting a Colorado Abandoned art show on August 5th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Idea Center in Rocky Ford, Colorado. Come out and see the photography of abandoned places photographed in Southeast Colorado. We would like to thank our sponsors Oliver Manufacturing and Hollar Seed Company for making this show possible.

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.

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.
