Burnt Sugar’s Jared Michael Nickerson: “I’ve never been a two-finger bass player…Most of my musical career has been based around plucking with my thumb” – Guitar World | Start Classified

Burnt Sugar – whose full title is Burnt Sugar, The Arkestra Chamber – makes music like you’ve never heard it before. In fact, they’ve never really heard it either: this highly improvisational and eclectic group creates new pieces with each performance via a special hand sign guidance system.

The collective is led by groove guru bassist Jared Michael Nickerson, whose musical background spans funk, rock, pop and more. His upbringing in Dayton, Ohio influenced this breadth of genres and, in turn, his stylistic choices in Burnt Sugar.
