Dust Up Baby

Jason Fickel

"The arrangements leave a lot of space, even with a trombone and harmonica in the band, giving the album a fresh, open sound.” --Blues Revue, Sept/Oct 2010 // ‘Get Your Car Off My Lawn.’ appears on NPR's Car Talk

“Fickel puts a fresh spin on traditional motifs building a breakup song on the request to ‘Get Your Car Off My Lawn.’…The arrangements leave a lot of space, even with a trombone and harmonica in the band, giving the album a fresh, open sound.” --Blues Revue, Sept/Oct 2010

A horn section and a killer backing band propels "Dust Up Baby" and lifts Fickel's work to a whole new level! Trombonist Jonathan Elmer (PMJQ) steps out on the jazz ballad "One Thousand and One," and a blues-pop groove propels the hip "My Girlfriend is Gonna Sing (A Couple Songs Tonight)."

Kerosene Cologne

Jason Fickel

Jason Fickel's third disk crackles with wry vocals, bottleneck guitars, and heartbreaking songs--a backseat Buick mix of Delta Blues and Urban Folk.

Singer-songwriter-guitarist Jason Fickel was born in Kansas and raised in western Colorado. Bitten by the blues, he headed south to Mississippi where he learned blues guitar and the blues trade from some masters--bluesmen James "Son" Thomas and Othar Turner. Next Fickel headed north, first to Rhode Island, where he played in coffeehouses and biker bars, and then on to Chicago, where he honed his songwriting craft. Now a resident of Indiana - America's Crossroads - Fickel continues to tour, write, and record original music.

Kerosene Cologne showcases Jason's slide and electric guitar playing, anchored by his acoustic finger-picking and soulful vocals. Soaring background vocals and clever percussion by producer Lauren Robert, horns by Jonathan Elmer, and keyboard contributions by Slats Klug and Dan Lodge-Rigal all magnify and amplify the emotional resonance of Fickel's songs.
