Going country with Keith and Jo…

Earlier this year Nick caught up with his old friend Jo Lopez at the O2 arena in London. Nick had been invited as a personal guest of Grammy award winner Keith Urban, to attend his sell-out graffiti U tour, combined with the C2C festival.

Jo Lopez was guitar tech for the big Countryman himself, which was a great opportunity for these two close friends to get together stage side before the gig. The boys soaked up the pre-gig atmosphere, whilst listening to the opening acts of Brett Eldridge and Chase Rice, who warmed the crowd up nicely. Jo has previously guitar teched for other heavyweights in the music industry including Bruce ‘the boss’ Springsteen and his E Street band.

Also present at the concert was Nick’s friend and agent Lee Williams, taking the opportunity to pick up an interview with Keith and Nick before the show.

Keith Urban rocked to the arena in his usual style he had the 21,000 strong crowd up on their feet to heel to toeing and dreaming of a road trip on Route 66.

The little pocket guard drew in the crowd and sang to everyone as if it was for their ears only. A fantastic boot tapping, Stetson wearing night.

Urbans presents on stage was mesmerising and well overdue after his 12 year absence from UK soil.

“It was a great opportunity to see these two very special guys, they are an important part of my life, and the gig was absolutely kicking. Keith Urban is a great showman”

Irish eyes are smiling

Pete Kennedy, Nick and Lee Williams

It was a sharp, cold day in London this week when Nick went on location to shoot an album cover for the enormously talented, Irish, singer songwriter, Pete Kennedy.

Pete has recently completed his latest recording in Nashville, USA, where his agent Lee Williams, arranged for him to work with some of the biggest names in country music.

Nick devised the concept for the shoot before being joined by Lee, who is also Nick’s agent in the USA, for a packed photographic session on the streets of the East End.
