ABOUT NICK VULTURE

With this solo acoustic venture, Nick Vulture has moved into territory that couldn’t be any further removed from his roots in the garage punk scene of Adelaide, South Australia with his band The Molting Vultures.

This is gritty acoustic folk done raw and stripped back to its very core. It taps into the emotions of someone searching for answers and questioning everything.  The songs are deeply personal but also universal in that they reflect the general fragility of the human condition with all of its uncertainty, its cruelty and its beauty.

Taking his cues from artists such as Conor Oberst, Bob Dylan, Justin Townes Earle, John Prine and Phoebe Bridgers, Nick has been honing his skills across Australia and has played The Semaphore Music Festival (twice) in Adelaide, the Adelaide Fringe (2022) as well as the best venues in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Hobart, Perth, Sunshine Coast and Cairns.

‘With just one guitar, Australian Nick Vulture managed to release one of the most beautiful songs ever released so far’.  Roadie Music (Portugal) 31/03/2022.  https://roadie-music.com/nao-perca-complicated-single-lancado-por-nick-vulture/

'Songs of fragile beauty that hit straight at the heart.  Sadness tinged lyrics laid bare by gentle delivery and stripped back music make it impossible not to be drawn in.'  Matt Swayne (The Midnight Mares, Brillig)

'Nick Vulture’s songs are at once intimate and universal; the world they create is new but familiar and everyone is invited in.  Nick’s delivery of his own words is perfect for them and sounds very much like the truth.  This truth is confessional, reflective, introspective, loving and ultimately redemptive.  I would encourage you to experience this significant Australian song writing voice'.  Graham Brown (Graham Brown Music)

'Nick's music sends an arrow straight through my heart'. Wendy Matthews (Che Remedy)
