Nigel is a singer/songwriter of eclectic, upfront quirky songs, covering life's true stories, imaginings and observations - with humorous self-awareness added for good measure.

“It’s always been there, an enigma, visceral, magical, inside and outside at the same time. It scared me, so I hid it from people for a long time. However there came a point when I needed to be honest – I was a singer-songwriter!” reveals Nigel, of the lead up to his debut album.

So 2021 arrives with the album ‘Hello Mystery’, the creation of which has been made possible through the help of a number of collaborators, not the least of whom is producer and musician Chris Pepper – who has played, engineered and produced acclaimed music with, amongst others, Chris Difford and Boo Hewerdine.

Nigel’s songs are an eclectic mix, with a respectful nod to classic songcraft, whilst incorporating his own brand of quirks. “I like to give my take on life’s significant experiences and other peoples stories. Though I’m not always the best at emotions, I can write a tune and I like to use a bit of humour too.” explains Nigel.

Born in the North West of England, now based in Bristol, Nigel draws from many musical influences including Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Squeeze, Elvis Costello, Blondie and classic British Rock and Pop.

After spending the majority of 2020 creating his album, Nigel has reflected “I’ve got to a strange place, but what an adventure, what’s next? ‘Hello Mystery’”.

If you’re passionate about music, you can feel it when someone else is on your wavelength and shares that same passion. Nigel is a prime example of this. His vocal tone isn’t perfect, but his absolute gusto shines through his latest album “Hello Mystery” and replaces the elements that a traditional listener may not enjoy with a real visceral energy that for me, is just as good as a perfect vocal.

His songwriting ability is refined and very well suited to his style of broad-ranged, full band country bangers. I’m in love with the harmonies and the way they complement Nigels very natural tone and adds to his signature comforting sound.

Nigels music is like a big warm hug that radiates passion in a way that I can’t help but adore, I look forward to listening again in the future!
