"Unfiltered" CD by John Nickel and the Cigar Box Sound Studio
This album from John Nickel, his first, features 10 original tracks performed exclusively on homemade and handmade instruments with 4 strings or less. The album features an intriguing blend of styles not often heard on cigar box guitars and other homemade instruments - a stronger rock and roll sound at times reminiscent of early Red Hot Chili Peppers and other seminal bands.
John Nickel is one of the pillars of the cigar box guitar community, and is centered in Huntsville, Alabama (one of the CBG movement's capitals), where he has taken part in the longest-running Cigar Box Guitar Festival for a number of years. John has been performing locally in the Huntsville area for years, and is now adding more regional gigs to his lineup, including Cigar Box Guitar festivals in Pennsylvania and Chicago. He created the Cigar Box Sound Studio specifically to help performers who feature cigar box guitars and other homemade instruments get their music recorded.
This special release edition of the album was created specifically for release through C. B. Gitty Records, and we are proud to offer it.
