Nick Schnebelen from the album What Key is Trouble In? available on Nick Schnebelen Music/Vizztone (by Danny McCloskey)
Nick Schnebelen has collected multiple International Blues Music awards over the course of a career that stretches back to the his beginnings as a co-founder of Trampled Under Foot (along with siblings Danielle and Kris) and working sideman gigs before launching his solo career in 2015. Nick returns upping the ante on his Blues with a healthy dose of Rock with his recent release, What Key is Trouble In?. His own backing band (Adam Hagerman-drums and Cliff Moore-bass) are joined by special guests Red Young on keyboards (Eric Burden, Marcia Ball, Janiva Magness), Buddy Leach on sax (George Thorogood), and Aaron Mayfield on organ. Nick Schnebelen blasts into What Key is Trouble In?, giving a nod to an influence as he picks up the crown of Blues Rock with “Ten Years After, Fifty Years Later”. His brand of Blues/Rock needs no enhancements, it is clear and concise, Nick claiming that ‘I like things that are very potent and simple. They get straight to the point’.
The songs rip and roar when What Key is Trouble In? wonders “Will I Stay” on a hammering beat as the story veers between yes and no as an answer. The Blues takes over for “Hard Driving Woman” as Nick Schnebelen does a Blues crawl through “Poor Side of Town”, adding a touch of south of the border for the Spanish-inspired string bends in “Blues Night”. The title track high-steps Blues and Rock as What Key is Trouble In? as “Big Mean Dog” bares its teeth with snarling guitar licks and a boogie beat supports the story of “Jonny Cheat” while Nick Schnebelen announces “Love in My Heart” over a caffeinated Funky beat, exiting the album on a mash of Blues/Rock swamp groove sharing “People Worry About Me”.
