Nick Brigden, a 19 year old from the Outaouais region has just released his first CD "Elgin at Elizabeth". The CD writing process started in 1999 when Nick wrote 'Girlfriends' with his collaborator Simon Honeyman at the age of 14 just days after Nick had departed his former band Celtic. "[Simon and I] have been cranking out the songs ever since," Nick adds.
"we actually finished recording this past Christmas but we were looking for some representation to help put the album out there." Nick landed a promotional deal with indie record label Mic Records which after a couple months fell through and nothing every got released. "It was kind of sad, but these sort of things to happen and I didn't let it get to me, I was going to release the CD with or without any help." And that's exactly what he did, "Elgin at Elizabeth" is being released independently through Nick's website (http://nick.cjb.cc)

"Elgin at Elizabeth" features 9 tracks including the single "Down The Line" which is currently being played on Canadian college radio. The CD is an emotional journey filled with ups (songs like Elgin at Elizabeth) and downs (like "Perfect Nightmare") and even includes those catchy 'screw you' type of songs (Song For Yesterday) that are popular today. Elgin at Elizabeth greatly captures any emotion anyone has gone through.
A real indie masterpiece. - Aylmer Bulletin

Bio

Growing up in a very musical family, Nick Brigden was always interested in music. Learning how to play instruments, training his voice by attending vocal lessons and joining the local choir were just a few of the after school activities Nick participated in.
In high school, he found the performer in him by taking drama classes. He performed in major theatre productions including "The Sound of Music". "I would wait in anticipation for my scene to come up because I was so excited to be on the stage and entertain the sold out audiences we usually had."
During a conversation with Nick's cousin Simon Honeyman, Simon played an instrumental song on the guitar. Nick pulled out a piece of poetry he had written a few years before and soon the two were recording the song.
Years and many songs later 21 year old Nick has released his debut LP "Elgin at Elizabeth" on EAE Records. The album has already recieved great reviews.
"[It's like] an emotional journey filled with ups and downs [...] it greatly captures any emotion anyone has gone through." - The Bulletin.
"Full of energy and life, for an emo driven record" - Outaouais Express.
His singles "Down The Line" and "Perfect Nightmare" and the newly recorded "My Regret" are now being played on Canadian and American college radio.
