"Your CD is FAB-U-LOUS...and i do NOT use the f word lightly...I looove 'come find me sleeping' and 'most of all'" - Jacques "thehaitianfirefly" Fleury - thehaitianfirefly


"Blues to the bone...The album showcases to superb effect Fickel's slide and electric guitar playing, acoustic finger-picking, and soft heartfelt vocals..."I Know the Saints," "Come Find Me Sleeping," and "Can't Live No Place" take the listener somewhere else, maybe to a land alive with swamps and creatures and spirits yet unmet...It's difficult to avoid a personal connection to his music..."
- Somerville (Mass.) Times

"He blows my socks off. Imagine Piedmont blues filtered through the eyes and ears of a thoroughly modern songwriter. That's what this guy brings to the table. And what a picker! - Kit Malone, Fractured Folk Showcase

Bio

Jason Fickel was born in Kansas and raised in western Colorado. Bitten by the blues as a teenager, he headed South to Mississippi where he apprenticed with bluesmen James “Son” Thomas and Othar Turner, learning blues guitar and the blues trade from the masters. During his time in Mississippi, Jason also shared the stage (or juke joint floor) with R.L. Burnside, Roosevelt “Booba” Barnes, and John Hammond. Next Fickel headed north, first to Rhode Island, where he played coffeehouses and biker bars (opening for Son Seals and Ronnie Earl), and then on to Chicago, where he honed his songwriting. Now based in Indiana, Jason continues to perform and record. His new album, “Dust Up Baby,” features members of his band: Tim Remmy on guitar, Russell Upsomegrub on bass, and Kyle Hopkins on drums. Joining them on vocals is the fabulous Ginger Curry.
