Heartbreaking songs for midnight whiskey drinkers.
In the corner of a small sea side café sits singer songwriter Nick Williams. Having worked with Mark Wallis, the producer of the Smiths, U2 and Travis on his demo material and performed with The Magic Numbers and folk hero Willy Mason, 2010 has been an exciting year.
With the release of his self produced E.P. Cold Part of Town (May 2010), Williams has painted a picture of confetti filled weddings, late night bars, empty streets, of loss and hope. With a distinct voice, often likened to Anthony and the Johnsons, a male Joni Mitchell or tom waits without the 40 a day habit. Williams is tender yet powerful, bruised yet honest. If you like your songwriters with poetic lyrics and crushing melodies, then this is one to watch.
"His voice is unusually high and versatile...contrary to his very flamboyant stage persona he is unafraid to lay himself bare when performing his songs...His lyrics are personal and original"
Daisy Behagg, Live music scene
"Songs dripping with emotion weave elaborate stories of the human condition"
"Broadly speaking Nick's music has an ambient feel to it, which is appropriate considering his nostalgic lyrics. His style is heavily supported by his talented piano playing."
