Melbourne singer-songwriter Nick Stratford is set to launch his new album ‘Yeah Nah’ live with full band on Sunday 5 November at Toff In Town from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.
‘Yeah Nah’ contains nine fine original rock/alt/indie songs penned by Nick Stratford, along with two more co-writes from him with Graham Gillmore and Tom Rouch. It was also produced by Rouch, a noted film and television composer and acclaimed session guitarist (film scores include The Reckoning, The Will To Fly, and Furious 7). These songs touch on the big themes in life, along with the occasional political/social comment and display flashes of sharp wit, healthy cynicism and good humour throughout.
Nick says, “I’ve been kicking some of these songs around for years and after some rewrites and reworking I think it’s finally time to share them with the world.”.
“I’m quite happy with this album, my second, and I love working with Tom – we really mesh musically and we always have a laugh. It’s been a fun project for me.”
Nick recorded his first full length album ‘Astroboy’ in 2011. At times deeply personal and poignant (the title track is about his now 14-year-old quadriplegic son, Oli), his songs embrace styles from rock to alternative to indie and surf, with a deeply Australian style ala Sunnyboys and Hoodoo Gurus.
To support the release of the single and album, Nick will play live shows featuring a full band with Nick on vocals and bass and acclaimed session guitarist and producer Tom Rouch on lead guitar.
