Zach Nichols


I picked up the guitar at age ten, inspired by my dad's love of music. Throughout my high school years in Kansas I studied with Kevin May of Roomful of Blues. Like many aspiring teenage guitarists I grew as a player in high school jazz bands, state bands, and bands of my own.

I continued my studies in Jazz Guitar at Wichita State University, a program well-known for the work of Jerry Hahn. From there, I studied Commercial Music at South Plains College in Levelland, TX, of which alumni include Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, Leann Womack, Ron Block of Allison Krauss & Union Station, Matt Jenkins, Jerrod Nieman, and Jed Hughes, a guitarist for Keith Urban.

While attending SPC, I taught for David Brandon, a well-known classical guitarist who co-published reputable materials with Christopher Parkening.

While still a student, I was asked to come on staff to teach private guitar and lead Rock and R&B Ensembles at the college. I stayed on staff at South Plains College from 2000 to 2005 before moving to Los Angeles, and eventually Nashville.

I have played as lead guitarist for hit songwriters such as BlissBliss, The Henningsens and many independent artists both in the studio and live. I am currently a session player for Diffrent Wirld Productions, and I also perform originals as a duo with my wife, singer-songwriter, Joni Nichols.

We live in Middle Tennessee with our 3 young children and hope to have more.

Though blues is my love, I enjoy playing and teaching all styles.

From Our Website

It's always a good time playing with my good friend Jason Minton and the rest of the band. Jason is a very gifted singer and songwriter. We had a lot of fun playing some cover tunes and some of his originals. It was a cool little joint out in Chapel Hill called Knight's Pizza. Here's the only pics that I got with my phone: The first one is my view of Jason during the show. Here's some pics from a recent show that my wife and I played at Sodium in Franklin. It was a benefit for Graceworks Ministries.
