James "Nick" Nixon is one of the foremost vocalists in the blues world today, as well as an outstanding guitarist and bandleader. As he enters his sixth decade of performing in the music business, Nixon has been recognized worldwide for his talents.
A velvet-voiced blues/R&B entertainer, Nixon was a Chess recording artist in the 1970's. In 2001 he released his acclaimed album, No End To The Blues, on the Black Magic label. The title cut was co-written with Elvis' discoverer/guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Scotty Moore, a Nixon friend.
In July 2005 he released a new album of original blues songs, Back Down South, on the Buncy Records label. Since then he has travelled and performed extensively but this is his first visit to Switzerland.
 
Jonell Mosser is one of Nashville’s best vocalists and most vibrant performers – and maybe the most under-recognized.
She’s well-known and loved in Nashville, but has never caught the national break she deserved.
When Ringo Starr, Don Was and Benmont Tench formed a new band in the ’90s called the New Maroons, Jonell was their choice for lead singer. When that band foundered after a Farm Aid show, Jonell’s big break was gone.
Yet she has persevered, delivering soul and rock with passion and purpose. Her live dates are electric, and her albums – particularly “Enough Rope, “Trust Yourself” and the sadly unreleased “Time Will Do the Talkin’” – are thoroughly engaging and powerful.
The new “Fortunes Lost, Fortunes Told” ranks with her best work.
