Singer, songwriter and guitarist Ben Nichols is the front man for the Memphis-based alt-country band Lucero.

Aside from being an incomparable singer and songwriter with compelling depth and soul and cutting some tremendously engaging cd’s, she has shared the stage with some of the best acts in the country. Among them: Los Lobos, John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams, Marty Stuart.
