Nick Stephenson is a professional Singer/Songwriter, Promoter and Recording Artist based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. He is formerly a member of Ground Dust/Legion of Filth, a musical collective that made big waves on the local scene before disintegrating in 2010, leaving Nick to concentrate on his solo activities. His debut album Dream Logic followed on from a number of low-key E.P releases and solo appearances around the country.
Nick's music is a unique blend of strong English folk influences fused with a modern, experimental pop/rock sensibility - passionate and unashamedly romantic, but at the same time hard hitting and dynamic.
The styles on his debut range from intimate acoustic performances to full band arrangements, showcasing the rawness of Nick's solo style and the many musical routes his writing explores (Electronica, Folk, Jazz, Blues etc.) Nick's powerful and distinctive vocal delivery takes its cue from the likes of David Bowie, Richard Thompson and perhaps a touch of Scott Walker.
Besides promoting his own music, Nick runs a successful open mic night in St Albans, Hertfordshire Mid-Week Music at The Boot in St Albans (every Wednesday from 8.30pm)
Having played at various festivals in the UK in the last 7 years including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and most recently The Isle of Wight Festival, Nick has been touring full time as a solo artist since 2010. He formed Nick and the Sun Machine in April 2012. The band recorded a single with Tony Newman (Iron Maiden/Voodoo Six) at Air Studios in Hampstead, London.
Nick and the Sun Machine are also part of the 'Folkstock Arts Foundation' which, in 2013, resulted in some successful festival appearances at 'Folkstock', 'Standon Calling' and 'Wilkestock'.
Nick and the band have also launched their 'taster' E.P for the forthcoming album 'Wide Lying Smiles' which took place at Empire Records, St Albans in August 2013.
In January 2014 Nick released his 'online only' solo E.P Giants Causeway, available to download from Band Camp
On the 8th of March 2014 Nick launched his second full length album and the first by his band Nick and the Sun Machine, Wide Lying Smiles at the Alban Arena whist supporting Toploader.
