Bio

Recently, Nick Harrison returned home from a three-month tour of the Southwest United States. Though he left Connecticut with his girlfriend/manager, he returned home alone. The tour was in promotion of his self-titled album; he performed forty dates in nine cities, all the while writing and enjoying the road. During their travels Harrison and co. stayed with close friends, camped in National Parks, and got inspired by the desert silence. But it was the end of his relationship with his longtime girlfriend that served as catalyst to the majority of Nick's inspiration. Songs like "Say it twice," which embodies the feel of a desert highway, is about the difference between loneliness and solitude and how the desert affects the latter. "This Fire..." another one of Nick's desert songs, was written in Vegas and clearly illustrates Nick's stance on Sin City.

When Nick returned to the East Coast he was wrecked, road weary and exhausted. But he kept pushing on gigging locally and using the recent break-up as song fodder and motivation to stay busy. He's since written over 20 new songs, and would consider these creations to be his best work to date. He actively performs old and new material wherever he can, working as hard as he needs to to satisfy any audience. "Playing to fresh ears ever night was bad for my ego, but good for my craft." (Nick on the success of his SW tour.)

Nick's first album (s/t) is the compilation of two projects. The first was Harrison's Demo, which includes collaborations with Liberty DeVitto (long-time drummer for Billy Joel) and many others making three strong tracks of lyrical and groove oriented music. The second project was in the Studio with Producer Michael Mugrage. The Nick and Michael spent countless hours on a seven-track album that highlights Harrison's songwriter, voice, and guitar playing. The result is the ten-track album available at many online music sellers. It includes songs like: "Brooklyn Blues," a rock-a-billy blues with a dirty guitar complimenting perfectly wraspy vocals, "Made of Gold," A Dylanesque song about the statue that adorns the SW corner of Central Park in New York City. Other songs on the album include: "'Round Again," "Lonely Mountain," and "It's not me, it's you" Nick's reversal of the classic break-up line.

Nick Harrison is currently performing at many clubs in the NE and is working hard on his next album, which will likely be completed this coming summer and released in fall of 2009.
