It was a pleasure having your band open for mine. Terrific job, hope to see you on down the trail. Absolute best to you!
4 stars! Nick gives us a sophisticated take on rock, while at the same time managing to leave a certain rawness still intact thereby giving the whole sound a greater depth of feeling than you generally expect from this approach . . .
Imagine if Skynyrd were starting up today — post Atlanta Rhythm Section, post Red Hot Chili Peppers. That’s the feeling I get with Nick Edelstein. Songs like “Kentucky Sun” and “Tripping” are great live, under the sun with drink in hand. “Sign From Above” is old-school pop, like Styx or Kansas.
Nick is such a fabulous entertainer. I was not only impressed with his guitar skills, but his relation with the audience. His memory of everyone’s names was truly amazing. We hope that he puts us on his calendar for next year.
Georgia-based Blues rocker, guitarist, and singer/songwriter Edelstein plays straightforward Blues-touched rock and roll. The writing is strong while his band accents the classic guitar riffs on both rockers and ballads.
Tasteful Blues Rock is on the menu from Atlantan Nick Edelstein, whose album ‘Ripple’ features him tearing through tunes both bluesy and funky; there’s a little Stevie Ray in there, some Hendrix and even a twinge of the Red Hot Chili Peppers from the rhythm section.

Nick matches immaculate phrasing and speed with soulful, tasteful melodies!
Pretty-boy presence … coy-ish appeal … a breath of fresh, understated sensuality. Nick obviously likes Rock, which adds a funky edge to his Blues expression … I got a taste of Santana and even a little Van Halen. He’s sneaky with it. Ladies, you’ll have a hard time deciding whether to bake him some cookies or mess up his hair!
