During the last two years Nick has been honing down his culinary expertise and has had a chance during lockdown to become quite a connoisseur of his favourite dishes.

“I make a mean rock ‘n’ roll chilli. It has several secret ingredients, one of which is a bottle of JB! Let’s face it any chilli is fucking Rock n’ Roll after a bottle of JB!”

Pandemic on the Dancefloor…

The COVID-19 Pandemic has derailed the music business causing destructive soundwaves Ripling out and destroying years of music workers livelihoods.

Nick has voiced his concern on the ensuing Pandemic and the long-standing effects it will have on the live music business and his friends within it. “ the Pandemic has ground the U.K.’s multi million pound music business to a halt, causing catastrophic knock on affect to everyone associated within the industry. Not only affecting artists but record labels, independent recording companies, freelancers, venues, festivals and agents. This year could change the face of the music industry for ever”

Thousands of festivals and tours have been cancelled or postponed leaving creatives and their fans feeling uncertainty for the future. The music and entertainment industry relies on their heavily freelance creative workforce. The loss of their income, usually for completed work only, may force many creatives out of the industry forever. Many talented people could find themselves redeployed into vocations that do not represent their talents, which will be a total loss for the UK’s music industry.

“ I’m particularly worried about the new aspiring musical acts who rely on live music festivals and tours to showcase their talents and get a footing on the music ladder many talented artists may go undiscovered“

The rise of music streaming, virtual live shows, podcasts and FB streaming is encouraging and many have found innovative ways to keep the music live and to keep fans listening.

“ I think that once we come out of the other side of this, the music industry will experience a boom. If artists and their associated workers can survive this brief period of hardship there is a potential for the music industry to begin to thrive again as fans flock back to the music scene.

Life without music is like a life without love“

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”
