Biography

Nick Fry’s debut full-length release, “Paint Me Away”, is a culmination of life experiences, which reach into the heart of the listener and demand for change. With true and meaningful lyrics and a knack for writing strong melodies, this CD is sure to keep your attention. From a cry of desperation in “Over and Over” to praise and love in “Arise”, pain that’s also full of hope in “Scars” or a prayer to lose yourself and let God have His way in the title track, Nick Fry’s “Paint Me Away” is sure to touch the essence of who you are and your life experiences. His music video, “Paint Me Away”, a declaration to lose ourselves in the grand scheme of things, is in rotation on JCTV (TBN Network) and is going for adds on other music television networks.

Nick has had the ability to enjoy success as an indie artist without the support of any label. In April 2008, fans votes from around the world garnered Nick the Famecast Fenom win with “Over and Over”. He was also included in Billboard Magazine that same month. He’s also played the famous Stubb’s in Austin, TX, The Paramount in Ashland, KY and has been included in newspapers, music compliation CD’s, magazine articles, as well as press in the UK and radio play and interviews as far away as The Netherlands. Other accomplishments include wins for songwriting throughout various contests and battle of the bands, West Virginia NewSong Finalist and being nominated six times for Independent awards.

In October 2008, Nick won Famecast for a second time and played to support the troops at Houston Freedom Fest. During the Summer of 2008, Nick and his band led worship for more than 5,000 students for Fuge Camps. This also sparked the Scars Movement, a movement to reach out to teenagers and adults who deal with depression and cutting.

In January 2009, Nick Fry landed a spot in SPIN Magazine; a place most indie artist rarely find themselves, especially Christian artists and in September, he sang “Scars” live on the Daystar Television Network.

Nick has had the opportunity to open for such artist as Nevertheless, Our Heart’s Hero, Geoff Moore, John Reuben and Dove Award Winner Nate Sallie of NewSong.

Even with any so-called success, Nick Fry has remained a down to earth guy with a heart to reach others through music. Whether it’s leading worship, a full blown concert or an intimate acoustic venue or coffeehouse, God is the sole purpose and reason behind Nick Fry and his music.

Lyrics

Over and Over

Written By: Nick Fry

Do you hear me when I’m pleading,
To escape this bleeding,
Do you care that I’m falling apart?

Do you hear me when I’m crying,
In the darkest hour trying,
To make the connection from my heart?

Am I lonely and forgotten,
Or just dot on,
This massive universe right now?

Do my problems really matter,
Am I broke down and shattered,
Are you going to save me some how?

I keep reaching to you,
Over and over, over and over.
I keep trying to move,
Over and over, over and over again.

I am speaking, are you listening
Is my lingo a sure thing
To get my prayers much closer to you?

Is it said right do I look fine
Will you save me at the right time
And take me closer to the truth?

I’m not trying to digress, but you know I’m in a mess.
You're what I'm trying to find.
Sometimes I feel my words just fall, on deaf ears or not at all.
You're what I'm trying to find, There's nowhere to hide, I've got nothing to hide.
