Nick Nash is another promising indie/alternative/ambient music artist I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with his amazing latest full-length album; Fortress of Gold, which was released in 2019. I have always been a big-time metalhead. However, it never stopped me from enjoying different styles of music such as classical, pop (from time to time), jazz, instrumental, indie, alternative, acoustic and ambient music. For over the last ten years I started to listen to easy-going and atmospheric music more and more. It helps me to relax by switching off the real world for some time, forgetting about my daily routine. When I first listened to Nick Nash, his music immediately reminded me of some artists that I admire and listen to on my daily playlists such as Bon Iver, Jeremy Messersmith, and Iron & Wine.
Nick Nash has a slightly different approach to music than all these artists I have mentioned above. He is much more traditional and country-oriented with a delicious filter of his spirit. The general vibe is always positive and inspiring, which also reminded me of Tori Amos. Compositions are mostly easy-going, focusing more on the general vibe. I totally loved Nick Nash’s music, enjoyed listening to his album a few times on repeat today. All of these songs can easily become a movie soundtrack, especially for American movies. This surely is a very successful piece of work. Nick Nash is showing great potential with his mellow voice, irresistible atmosphere and magical energy in his every song. Simply beautiful.
