RANDY NORRIS and JEFF NICELY
Randy Norris & Jeff Nicely – an eclectic acoustic blues duo featuring dynamic vocals and exceptional acoustic guitar and harmonica interplay. With nearly twenty years of making music together, these seasoned musicians blend the sounds and elements of soul, rock, New Orleans rhythm and delta blues. Randy Norris & Jeff Nicely are well traveled, each with Midwest roots, playing everything from loose pickin’ parties to tight funk ‘n soul revues. After ten years in LA doing serious session and sideman work, Randy brought his vast repertoire north, joining Jeff in fronting the popular turn of the century Seattle area band, Blues Therapy.
Performing as a duo since 2008, Randy Norris & Jeff Nicely earned Semi-Finalist status at the 2012 and 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. More recently, they were awarded the 2017 Washington Blues Society Best of the Blues Award for Solo/Duo Blues Act. They perform by the credo: "If there's no feeling, you're just wasting your breath".
