"Nick Arkin"

"Breathy and personal, Nick melds a mix of vocalizations, blending a pleasing, discordant and heartfelt passion into his work. A hint of subdued Bowie-esque with a tinge of Tom Waits, Arkin inspires a thoughtful, simmering mood, his melancholia made for mourning, nursing a breakup and a tall whisky, neat. " - Birmingham Free Press Music

"Review of "Finding Beauty in Sadness""

It has been said that artists create best when they are at their lowest. Whether it is a blank canvas or empty notebook, heartbreak and tragedy and prove to be an inspirational muse of sorts. The aptly titled Finding Beauty in Sadness is a soul bearing journey from independent folk artist Nick Arkin.
Nick has this really warm baritone voice that you typically don’t hear in a lot of today’s music. Pair that with that gorgeous sound of stripped down acoustics, and you have something truly exceptional.
While I thoroughly enjoyed this five song EP, my choice for standout tracks, are “Not My Life”, “Real Me”, and the closing instrumental, “Schonen Klang.”
Kudos to Mr. Arkin for releasing Finding Beauty in Sadness and sharing this dark, yet very honest piece of his life with the musical world. My hope is that anyone who picks this up and gives it chance will find their own version of beauty, as I have. 7/10 Stars. - I'm Music Magazine


Silence Broken Ep
Finding Beauty in Silence



A musician who is a little bit from everywhere, but whom has slowly drifted to find his home in the deep south.  Nick generally plays solo and records his music with a "bare bones" approach.
