FOR iMMEDiATE RELEASE:
SEPTEMBER 29, 2018 - You voted, the polls have closed and the winner of the 89th ROCKWIRED ARTIST OF THE MONTH title is LORD NELSON and guitarist SEB-L on the strength of their new LP BACK ON THE ROAD. he influence of STUCK MOJO over rap and metal can't be denied but they've been unjustly eclipsed by that FRED DURST and that whole LIMP BIZKIT thing that came to define that cruddy late-nineties to early-2000s rock landscape. The goal of combining rap and hip hop with the more visceral sensibility of hard rock and metal has always been an honorable one and STUCK MOJO deserved a fucking Congressional Medal. In recent years, ROCKWIRED has become acquainted with STUCK MOJO's original front man BONZ and his electrifying, self-titled post-MOJO band. We also became familiar with some of the friction between him and his former band and the shake up that led to his departure. Now, I have become familiar with the fellow who stepped into the STUCK MOJO juggernaut after BONZ left the fold. LORD NELSON is a different kind of energy - imposing, yet more mellifluous than the erratic live wire approach I've come to expect from BONZ. It was LORD NELSON's rhymes and presence that helped guide STUCK MOJO through their albums SOUTHERN BORN KILLERS (2007) and THE GREAT REVIVAL (2008). Following his departure from the band, NELSON took a four year absence before returning to music making with the solo album FIGHT - MY STRUGGLE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL with a little help from the french rock band LIES. Now, LORD NELSON has stepped into the ring again with the release of his self-released concept album BACK ON THE ROAD, sharing billing with SEB L - his collaborator and guitarist from the band LIES.
ROCKWIRED.COM will be launching its latest ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign on October 1, 2018. The nominees will be announced then.
