Nostalgic Tripping With Jeb Loy Nichols
Jeb Loy Nichols is a man who lives in a small, rural area of Wales. However, that wasn't always the case. The Wyoming native dabbled in big city life with a spell in New York before opting for a quieter life. His latest record - 'June is Short, July is Long' - somewhat impressively reflects both these settings.
'June Is Short, July Is Long' is a personal affair, which takes Jeb back on a trip down memory lane. While it has a folk/Americana core, it is the soul within both the delivery and lyrical content that gives the record its heart and allows it to shine.
While there is no denying that 'You Got It Wrong' is destined to become a fan favourite, it is in the devastatingly beautiful 'How Can A Man (Live Without His Mother)' that Nichols peaks on a record without any troughs.
