"Echos of the blues like Freddie King, Buddy Guy ..Nick Schnebelen's world-class guitar playing leads the way." JS, Seatle PI Nick Schnebelen has quickly built a reputation as killer lead guitar player and impassioned vocalist. As founding member of the award winning popular family band Trampled Under Foot ( TUF), Nick has traveled the world playing festivals such as Notodden, Montreal, and as fan favorites on the annual Legendary Blues Cruise. Today Nick performs with his own band, as does his sister Daniele, and brother Chris. The siblings still perform a few re-union shows as Trampled Under Foot.

Music Industry agrees: In 2008 Trampled Under Foot (TUF) won the International Blues Competition and Nick won The Albert King Award for "Best Guitarist". Shortly thereafter Nick and his family band TUF recorded two great blues releases with Tony Braunagel producing ( Taj Mahal, Robert Cray): "Wrong side of Blues" and "Badlands" and the latter debuted #1 on Billboard and won "Best Contemporary Blues Album at the Blues Music Awards in 2014.

It's going to be a blast recording in LA". Nick Schnebelen has blues in his blood. Nick and siblings grew up with their parents who played music full time in the Kansas City blues scene. Their house often became a jam space for their parents Lisa Swedlund and Robert Schnebelen's popular blues band, Little Eva & The Works. Today Nick continues that tradition with the blues as he travels world-wide with his own band. Look for even greater success for Nick in the coming months.
