311’s Nick Hexum Jams Away on an Rdio Playlist

Nick Hexum

311 lead singer and guitarist Nick Hexum listens to a wide world of music for both inspiration and practice. On Nick Hexum’s Jammy Playlist, he shares his current favorite songs for jamming to on his guitar to celebrate his side project, The Nick Hexum Quintet’s new album, My Shadow Pages.

The mix is both a surprising and an enlightening list of tunes that are far from obvious to choose, including fast-paced moments of funk from James Brown and Maceo Parker, jazz from contemporary legend Pat Metheny, and electronic soul from British producer Quantic. Now go and enjoy this set, which was made exclusively for you with love from Mr. Hexum.
