Born on October 20th, I guess that makes me a Libra-Scorpio cusp, huh? Don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but at least I'm alive and well. Well, I've got the blues. And with the help of a few of my good friends, I was able to get some of it on tape. A lot of it is slow burning electric blues but I threw in a couple acoustic pieces in there as well. Hope you enjoy, thanks for listening - Benjamin
"...intense yet tasteful playing, heartfelt singing with attractive vibrato and warm vocal tone, and a directness to the songs." - Bruce Iglauer (Alligator Records)
Nick Trill & The Thrill Seekers: nicktrill.com
Nick Trill has been playing blues professionally since 1977. Born in England, Nick moved to the New York City area when he was three. As a teenager he listened to bands like Canned Heat and Paul Butterfield. He started jamming with his B. B. King loving guitar playing friends just after high school. Nick couldn’t play guitar but he could sing; which is just as well as this way he got to pick the song and lead the band. In 1978 he started his own band: The Crawling Kingsnake Blues Band.
They played locally for several years and in NYC at Folk City ( Bob Dylan’s first NYC gig). After a couple of years Nick moved to NYC and changed the name of the band to Teenage Beat, after the Little Walter song. They played regularly at the legendary Dan Lynch Blues club in the early 1980’s along many luminaries such as Steve Guyger, Bill Dicey, Robert Ross and the Holmes Brothers to name a few. They also had some great players sit in with the band like Hubert Sumlin and James Cotton.
Nick moved to South Florida in 1995 and started a new band called The Thrillseekers and played many gigs all throughout Florida. Since moving to the Phila area in 2014 Nick and The Thrillseekers have become regulars on the local Blues scene. Nick just released his fourth CD "The Devil Ain't Lazy" which was recorded at Drowning Fish Studio in Philadelphia.
