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.
“I know now that you have to try everything. I’ve sat in parks, shared songs, sat in the Swiss Alps and played to a bunch of cows on the side of hill. A guy walked past and laughed. I said ‘Well you’ve got to find your audience somewhere right’?” It’s this quiet confidence and laid back demeanor that allow Nick to captivate his audience, bringing soul to any empty room.
