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 sold his car and home to move and landed in London.
After playing as a touring musician for popular Australian 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 with bands such as the iconic Indie Darlings and Agnus and Julia. He has now landed in London just in time to release his debut album, Over Easy.
Over Easy is exactly that – music that induces easy, enticing listening. The album has been created with great effort and artistry. 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.
