Nick Gill is a pop rock singer/songwriter from Fairhope, Alabama. In September of 2008 he released his second album Through the Straight and Narrow. In the following months Nick Gill received airplay on local radio stations and was featured on local news shows and in newspapers and magazines. His online presence soared as his single “Dawn” rose to the top of the charts on websites like Ourstage.com and Songvault.com. He also was forwarded multiple times on the worlds leading independent A&R company, TAXI.
In February 2009, Nick embarked on a 50 show tour across the East Coast. He began honing his performance skills at night and coming home at three in the morning only to be at school by eight. As months rolled by, Nick began to see CD sales rise even more and began selling t-shirts, coffee mugs and bumper stickers.
After an insightful and inspiring tour, Nick teamed up with John Hamilton (drummer for Mobile, Alabama band “Peek”) to record several revised versions of songs off of his 2006 debut album Cause it’s True Love. Some of these songs where later released on the bonus track edition of his EP. The revised version of “Crazy English Teacher” was released as a single in September 2009.
When production on the “Cause it’s True Love remake concluded, it was time for Nick to begin work on his EP. In August 2009, Nick Gill began recording his 3rd self-titled album. The five track EP was recorded at Fudge Recording Studio in New Orleans, Louisiana. Nick recorded the album with producers, Jack Miele (The Molly Ringwalds) and Jacques Delatour. The album carries emotion far beyond his years. In “How it Feels (to lose a friend)”, Nick tells what it’s like to lose a friend to suicide. “Breaking the Heart in” delves into the lack of understanding he has for love. In “That Life”, he explains how he will not conform into society’s flaws. The EP is the 3rd album he has released during high school years and is a turning point in his career.
Nick released his fourth album, Waves are Only Water in May 2012. The album was produced by Ed and Scott Cash in Franklin, TN, and is available on iTunes.
