Biography

Blending moods of alt country and melodic folk with the darker undertones of indie rock, it is a diverse pallet which Nieko draws from. Inspired by artists such as Bon Iver, Fink and City and Colour, It is the song and where it takes the listener that Nieko is most interested in and not so much the style. It is a smouldering dark acoustica that trembles with emotion.

Having toured both nationally and internationally with his band Costa Rae, Nieko has played premier venues and festivals such as Peats Ridge and Open Arms and supported the likes of the Beautiful Girls, Blue King Brown, Ash Grunwald and Jeff Lang. As singer songwriter with Costa Rae, Nieko’s songs have been played on JJJ, FBI, Rage and Max, as well as featuring on several surf films.

Nieko now turns his attention to his Solo work, with the pending release of his new single ‘Changeling’ produced by Ian Pritchett (Beautiful Girls & Angus and Julia Stone). Nieko will look to build on the momentum created by Costa Rae’s previous release “Shot from the moon” and further develop his diverse songwriting skills.

Lyrics

Question Society

Written By: Nick Downey

I've got a question for society, why do we keep on buying things
That we don't really need, because we're greedy greedy
and i need to feed my ego, everywhere that i go wonder why
i feel like getting high, not all but most the time, cause i can run but i can't hide........
