Songs of the Plains was released on March 31, 2017. This album is a collection of improvisational flute, guitar and soundscapes that I recorded in December of 2016 and January of 2017. This album combines Native American flute, acoustic guitar and the meditative sounds of nature that lead the listener on a journey through the Comanche Grasslands, vast prairies and the beautiful wetlands of the plains. This album is about where I grew up on the plains of southeast Colorado. The album is available here on my site or from Amazon and iTunes.
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 Flutes, Pat Haran Flutes, and Coyote Oldman who make the flutes that I play.
Thank you all so much,
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.

I will be performing live with my daughters Daryl and Kloey on Friday night February 17th, from 5 till 7:30 p.m. at the Cow Palace and throughout the day on Saturday February 18th for the snow Goose Festival 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.
