Shane Nicholson

Fri 8 Apr

The uniquely compelling Shane Nicholson shares his new album, Living in Colour.

Since the release of Pretty Violet Stain’s debut E.P. Blush in 1997, Shane Nicholson has inhabited a rare space in the music industry: songwriter, recording artist, producer/engineer, multi-instrumentalist, guitar pedal builder, whiskey-enthusiast, motorcycle-lover, and musical mentor.

Now he showcases songs from his new album Living In Colour. This new album shows Shane Nicholson in different hues: trusting and cynical, father and friend, sometimes buoyant and in love, beginning to have faith in the world, other times struggling to make sense of the same world that can rip your heart right out.

Nicholson has received three ARIA awards, 11 CMAA Golden Guitar Awards, 2021 APRA Song of the Year for ‘The High Price of Surviving’ – and 2 APRA awards. He has been nominated twice for an Americana Music Association Award.
