From riding the waves off the island where he grew up south of Melbourne, to riding the tour circuit as a guitarist for multiple Australian musicians, Nick Kingswell has landed in London after selling his car and home to do so.
After playing as a touring musician for some of Australia’s established artists for 9 years, Nick decided it was high time to give himself an honest go. Following a breakup, a month of gigging and multiple 2 am red-wine-inspired writing sessions; Nick had over 40 songs, the bones for an album, and plans for an Australian tour. Fast-forward to 2014 and Nick has toured down under extensively and landed in London just in time to release his debut album, Over Easy.
Over Easy is exactly that – music that induces easy, enticing listening. Mixing magical high tones with gentle singing guitar riffs, Nick produces beautiful melodic songs. His lyrics, evidently birthed from the heart, when coupled with a calm restraint, result in a contrastingly peaceful & intense listen. It’s this quiet confidence and laid back demeanor that allow Nick to captivate his audience, bringing soul to any empty room.
