Award-winning blues guitarist and songwriter Jared James Nichols drops the music video for “Hard Wired” via Black Hill Records. Nichols released the track back in April, following his 2021 EP "Shadow Dancer".

’Hard Wired’ is an all-out supercharged anthem and dedicated to every single person who loves to a fault. The song was recorded at the Blackbird Studios in Nashville, co-written by Jared James Nichols, Tyler Bryant and Graham Whitford and produced by Eddie Spear. No matter how hard you try you cannot get away from what you love, even if you know it’s bad for you. Between the screaming BLUES POWER shred guitar and moaning vocal lines, ‘Hard Wired’ will completely rock you”Jared James Nichols.

Armed with one guitar – his battered-and-bruised, heavily-customized Gibson Les Paul, a.k.a. “Old Glory” – a gritty, soul-stirring voice and an unshakable spirit, Nichols has come roaring out of Waukesha, Wisconsin (the hometown, coincidentally – or perhaps not – of the actual Les Paul) to resurrect and reaffirm the power and glory of good ol’ hot-wired, high-stakes blues-drenched rock ‘n’ roll… and also whip up a few new sounds and sensations in the process.

And while he may be just in the beginning stages of his career, Nichols has already picked up plenty of rabid acolytes along the way, whether they’ve turned on and tuned in to his electrifying riff-‘n’-roll from records like his 2015 debut, "Old Glory & the Wild Revival" or the 2018 follow up "Black Magic", at one of his own incendiary solo gigs, or from catching him onstage with giants like Slash, Billy Gibbons, Zakk Wylde and the late, great Leslie West, among many others.

Nichols, was recently named a Gibson Brand Ambassador and will soon be announcing the release of his new album.
