Nick Tann & Band
Nick Tann is best recognised in the guise of solo, acoustic guitar slinging, jazz tinged, folk-pop performer. And it is that more familiar sound which forms the basis of the new look and sound of Nick Tann and his new band. The “new” Nick Tann is a triptych of Nick Tann on guitars and vocals, Bastien Terraz on double bass and Guy Siviour on drums/percussion.
At the heart of the sound is the familiar balladry, emotionally driven personal narratives and rich vocal tones from solo days but now there is some wonderful musical augmentation. A chilled yet structurally robust British folk take on Americana heartland traditions and whilst the familiar building blocks of Jazz, blues and country all play their part it is a wholly new sonic architecture that is the end result.
Once a familiar sight at the festival, Nick is returning to the Ventnor Fringe after a 2 year break and is promising a new approach as well as free cake!
Favoured by BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson “He’s just so good!” as well as BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley it’s looking like Nick’s decision to make music his full time occupation is turning out to be a good one!
