Nigel Hall
Nigel (* 1981 in Washington DC) is a vocalist and keyboardist. He is a current member of Lettuce and also fronts his solo project, The Nigel Hall Band. He is an accomplished musician steeped in gospel music tradition, as well as classic soul, funk, hip hop and R&B. Nigel was discovered by Lettuce co-founder Ryan Zoidis around 2007, who invited him to Brooklyn to meet Eric Krasno and record with jazz band Soulive. Nigel was a fan of Soulive and this was a major moment for his young career. At that same time Nigel connected with Lettuce drummer Adam Deitch and The Roots drummer/founder Ahmir Questlove Thompson, and soon began appearing onstage with Soulive, Lettuce, and Royal Family affiliates.
 
Nigel was first nominated for a Grammy Award for his work on Ledesi's 2009 album, Turn Me Loose. In 2011, Hall moved to New Orleans to immerse himself in the Crescent City's musical heritage. It was there where Nigel was drafted by Jon Cleary for his band, and appeared on the pianist's Grammy-winning album, Go-Go Juice. Nigel toured with Robert Randolph and the Family Band, John Scofield, and briefly with Tedeschi-Trucks Band, before he was chosen as a keyboardist/vocalist for Warren Haynes Band.
 
Nigel has appeared onstage with Marcus King, Pretty Lights, Dave Matthews Band, and more. In 2012, Hall co-founded The Nth Power, a funk/soul/R&B band with former Beyonce drummer Nikki Glaspie. In 2015, Nigel departed The Nth Power and soon released Nigel Hall Band's debut, Ladies & Gentleman... A Bonnaroo 2013 performance saw Nigel share the stage with Chaka Khan, Willie Weeks, James Gadsden, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Solange, members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Anthony Hamilton, SchoolBoy Q, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Chance the Rapper, and Thundercat. As a solo artist, Nigel has been nominated for the New Orleans Offbeat awards, won New Orleans Big Easy Award, and has been a featured solo artist at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for five consecutive years. Nigel performed at New Orleans' Essence Music Festival for the first time in July 2019.
