Willie Nile is a Buffalo raised American singer-songwriter. In 1980 Nile released his self-titled debut album which according to one critic remains “one of the most thrilling post-Byrds folk-rock albums of all time”. After various career interruptions he eventually returned to recording and performing in the US and Europe, establishing himself as a respected singer-songwriter. Many have said “Streets of New York” (2006), “House of a Thousand Guitars” (2009) and “The Innocent Ones” that included the blazing anthem One Guitar (2010); stand as “three of the finest albums to ever straddle the worlds of “singer/songwriter” fare and good ol’ street-tough rock ‘n’ roll”.
Jamie McLean Band
Jamie McLean had a big decision to make in 2006. He could continue to tour the globe as the guitarist for New Orleans’ famed Dirty Dozen Brass Band playing sets at Madison Square Garden, Bonnaroo and Japan’s Fuji Rock. Or he could do it his way, take the road less traveled and begin to lead Jamie McLean Band. It seemed as though there was only one option.
“It was certainly a tough choice to leave my bread and butter gig but I could feel it in my heart that I needed to be singing and recording and performing my own music. I’ve never been happier!”
McLean have been relentlessly touring and recording with Jamie McLean Band which also features Brian Griffin on drums and Ben Mars on bass. Jamie McLean Band has released 6 albums, Live At Gibson (2012), Sunday Morning (2011), Time Of My Life (2011), Completely (2010), American Heartache (2008) and This Time Around (2006).
The band has hit the road with the likes of Gregg Allman, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Drive By Truckers, Tedeschi/Trucks Band, Blues Traveler, North Mississippi Allstars, Joan Armatrading, Jackie Greene, and Gov’t Mule. Jamie Mclean Band appeared at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, Gathering of the Vibes, Quebec Summer Fest, Ottowa Blues, Bele Chere, Sweetwater Festival, Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam and Great Woods Music to name a few. McLean also released a video documentary “From The Bottom Up”, and has enjoyed the sponsorship of Gibson Guitars, Blue Microphones, John Varvatos and Esquire Magazine.
Jamie McLean Band is now set to release their long awaited album One and Only. Recorded at the famed Sound Emporium studios in Nashville One and Only captures the band’s strongest songwriting to date.

Live staples “Virginia” and “One and Only” finally get a beautiful studio performance and Jamie McLean Band will tour behind their new album throughout the US and Canada this year!
