Well, Devon! It’s a bloody long way from Norfolk…
After receiving a call a few weeks earlier from my American agent, Lee Williams, about a new project with a dear colleague of his and mine. Alan West is a guy that I first met in Nashville in 2010. And he was putting together this new show that will be touring from the spring next year here in the UK.
I was asked to shoot some promo shots for the show on the day they were filming and promo VT that will accompany the promo shots leading up to the tour and beyond. It turns out that a theatre had been hired in a sleepy place in Devon called Honiton.
It turns out that it was a 9 am call time so I decided to leave Norfolk around about 12.30pm the day before after a 7 1/2 hour trip. I managed to find myself in Devon that evening.
Arriving at theatre around 8 am the next day, I found myself in the midst of what turned out to be a really exciting and enjoyable day. The show is titled ‘A Country Music Songbook’ and will be showcasing some of Alan‘s favourite and traditional Country songs representing the years that he has had in the business.
The show will be releasing dates in the spring of 2024. So make sure you keep tuning in to find out whereabouts they’re going to be and when you can see them.
A total of nearly 800 miles from Norfolk to Devon in just under 24 hours.
Ah well! It’s Rock n’ Roll!!

Finally after nearly a 3 year break, due to the on going pandemic issues with the dreaded Covid, the last time I was in at Siren, I was making the 55th Sound and Nick’s Vision Radio Show. This last week I was invited back to the SirenFM Studios as a guest to talk about the forthcoming premiere of the documentary “Nick Elliott The Story So Far.’’
The launch of the film, with a very special VIP premiere is to be held at The Forum, Norwich on Saturday May 20th with Alex Lewzcuk being on that very exclusive guest list. He decided that we needed to have a chat live on air on his Mid Week Drive Show hosted by Alex each Wednesday Evening on the station.
We were joined by a a few special guests while tasting some hand made environmentally friendly chocolate, along with interviews and chats with a few of the regulars from around the globe.
It was great to get back into a proper studio again after such a long time. I do think that Zoom has it’s place when doing interviews over a long distance or internationally. But you just can’t beat live radio.

Nick’s new book “From nothing to Kings Lynn in 30 days“ is hot off the press from elliottstudios publishing.
This 100 page commissioned book, depicts a pictorial journey of a young man’s struggle to get his race car to the start line for his very first race meet, held at the Trackstar Raceway in Kings Lynn West Norfolk. The project took just two months for Nick to complete and the result is another fine art publication triumph.
“ It was a total pleasure doing a one off project like this, it took me right back to my days of motorsport and reminded me very much of my own racing days.”

Aturn films, owned by Andy Turner approached Nick some time ago with a proposal that was just too good to pass up. Filming has now commenced on a no holds barred documentary about Nick‘s life, his grass root beginnings and his rise to renowned rock art photographer, taking his place amongst some of the most revered photographers the world has to offer.
“I met Nick some 10 years ago through printed media, we have stayed in touch on and off since then.”
Andy Turner (Aturn Films)
The candid documentary delves within the layers of Nick’s personality and allows viewers a sincere insight into what makes this artistic,tick both behind and in front of the lens.
“Knowing how passionate Nick was about his work I knew I needed to document his life to where he is now, warts and all, and show people how life within the art world is full of peaks and troughs”
Andy Turner (Aturn Films)
Nick talks openly about his career as a newspaper photographer, his first studio, how he took the advertising industry by storm, working within the rock art industry, his totally unique and captivating images depicting his beloved Norfolk and his slow descent into a hideously despondent private world, following several personal tragedies that have shaped his future art for good.
“ Nick made me aware of some new exciting projects he was working on that was somewhat different compare to his usual fine art rock photography“
Andy Turner (Aturn Films)
Nick chats transparently to Aturn Films and discusses life events that have brought him here today, events which have impacted on his perception of art, and his relentless passion to make a difference within the creative industry. He discusses his family, his colourful childhood tinted by his Eastend roots, his emotional frustrations within a failed marriage, and his desire to be secluded from the idiosyncrasies of modern day society.
“Nick is one of the coolest and nicest people I know, and following his story over the coming months will bring a rare insight into the mind of a creative at their best”
Andy Turner (Aturn Films)
Filming takes place over the next few months on locations throughout the UK. Once completed, audiences will be able to immerse themselves in this enthralling documentary via Netflix, Amazon prime, and terrestrial TV.
“I feel so pleased and excited about this Aturn film documentary. It’s straight out of the desk and totally unedited. I would very much like to thank Andy for the opportunity to tell my story and look forward to creating something fantastic during our joint collaboration as it progresses”
It’s Rock n’ Roll!
