'Blurry Lines' digital download & Album News 2020
Hey everyone, you can download my single 'Blurry Lines' as a digital download only, from all the usual online stores. There's the full band version and a piano/vocal only version. The Nick Gladdish band will return, hopefully later in the year, summertime maybe, when all this Corona Virus pandemic has calmed down. Who knows? In the meantime, the band and I have been working new material (remotely) for what will become 'Last One Get the Lights' L.P. I have also been collaborating with my good friend Lee Brown on a sideline E.P. Most of that material has been written, just waiting to record again. Anyway, i'll be uploading new videos/pics to this site soon. Cheers everyone, Nick x ...
Who is Nick Gladdish?
Anyone who’s even vaguely familiar with the grassroots buskers/gigging scene of Newcastle will be familiar with the mellow, bluesy tones of singer/songwriter, Nick Gladdish.
A regular of Bar Loco, Colonel Porters, The Old George and anywhere else providing a microphone (and a decent pint), Nick can be found most nights soulfully serenading the regulars of such establishments, as well as offering friendly support (and quick-witted banter) to the many musicians, poets, jammers and drinkers who also form the fabric of the North East’s music scene.
Not that one would need any further convincing of Nick’s dedication and passion for original music after witnessing a late night rendition of one of his many compositions, but he also boasts over a decade of contributions to the audible arts which would no doubt serve as a source of pride to any songwriter.
The Nick Gladdish Band is nothing short of a Northern super group to serve as his backing band.
Vocal harmonies are generously provided by Yuma’s own Shannon Pearl Powel.
Guitarist, composer, music therapist, erstwhile hen-keeper and bibliophile, Tim Higgins takes the charge of lead guitarist (unfortunately charged with driving offences on route to the Edinburgh date of the tour).
Bassist and Sunderland’s purveyor of lo-fi grooves, Adam Cornell holds down the bass guitar.
The legend and all round musical swiss army knife that is John Timney provides all things percussive.
