Nico Wayne Toussaint is a unique french blues artist. He is one of the rare artists to have created, starting from Chicago blues, a completely personal vocal and performance style. His current musical universe goes way beyond his earlier influences.
Nico was born on august 1973 in Toulon, France and started playing harmonica since the age of 18. He ran into the blues when he was 15, through Muddy Waters’record “Hard again” featuring James Cotton on harp. Since then, the wildness high energy of James Cotton’s playing have always been his musical credo.
With his explosive concerts and through his sheer talent he's managed to build a solid reputation in France and around the world (he tours regularly all over USA and Canada). His on stage charisma is exceptional. Here's his new album «Southern Wind Blowin’», a personal creation largely inspired by the music of America's deep south and peppered with african, lousianan, and jazzy spices.
