Nels Cline has spent the last nine years playing with one of the most respected rock bands out there, but simply calling him Wilco’s guitarist wouldn’t do him justice. Cline is one of the most versatile guitarists around, flourishing in a variety of musical spaces from jazz and punk to straight up
Nels discusses his plans for the next few months, including the release of the new Nels Cline singers album, Macroscope, Wilco taking a little bit of a breather after almost three years on the road, and his plans to tour Europe with Medeski, Martin, and Wood in March in support of a live-in-the-studio album.
Let’s hope MMW+C will line up some U.S. dates. I have a hunch we may see Nels playing with the Singers and Julian Lage sometime next year, too. Keep your fingers crossed!
