Love And BloodShane Nicholson has already proven himself to be one of Australia’s outstanding Americana singer-songwriters.

Both solo and in collaboration with Kasey Chambers, he’s collected himself a swag of awards, from ARIAs to Golden Guitars. For Love and Blood, he removed himself from his daily digs and took off to the isolation of the Hawkesbury River (NSW), to find inspiration for his sixth solo album. Here along with a cast of wonderful guests – including legendary Nashville Americana artist Buddy Miller, who adds his voice and guitar prowess – the always sincerely personal Nicholson shares his current matters of the heart with an uplifting determination of love and hope.

Love and Blood is out July 28 via Lost Highway Records/Universal.
