With the release of his 4th full length album Black Creek (2023), Graham Nicholas has created an emotionally resonant world inhabited by troubled and love-hungry characters. Never alienated for their insecurities, his characters are instead respected by the empathetic voice of an honest songwriter.
The new album finds Nicholas honing in on his concise form of storytelling and refining his irreverent sense of humour. Coupling his John Prine & Gordon Lightfoot narrative style with a backing band that hearkens back to the likes of The Band, Nicholas’ songs have found the right balance of warmth and grit.
Listed by Now Magazine as one of their “2018 Toronto Musicians to Watch”, he has also shared the stage with the likes of Ron Hynes, Russell DeCarle, Catherine MacLellan, Old Man Luedecke, Del Barber and Daniel Romano.
