Nick Wildgoose

 

Nick Wildgoose is a South Western Victoria based Australian blues musician. He is a multi-instrumentalist specialising in guitars, keyboards and vocals. Nick has been performing in bands and as a solo artist for nearly 30 years. After ten years of band work Nick worked as a solo performer in the pub/club scene playing acoustic guitar and singing covers and the odd original.  Nick wound up with several residencies in bars and clubs and performed at over 380 weddings over the following 18 years.

Family life and growing work commitments led to a spell from performing in the early to mid- 2000’s.   ’’In 2005 I was offered a place in a well known local cover band playing lead guitar/ keyboards and doing the odd lead vocal. I spent five years in that band and really enjoyed it, it was a bit of a renaissance for me and a segue to recording and performing my own material, which had always been of a blues and R&B flavoured style. ’

Nick released his first album, “Dilettante Bluesman” in July 2015. It contains 11 songs, 6 of which are original. The 5 songs I have covered on the album are mostly so unlike the originals I could have changed the lyrics and called them my own!  Nick plays all instruments on the album with the exception of some drum parts and a blues harp solo by the talented Fast Eddy Boyle. Most of the album was recorded in Nicks home studio.

Nick Wildgoose is a South Western Victoria based blues musician and songwriter. He is a multi-instrumentalist specialising in guitars, keyboards and vocals.
" The style is best described as easy listening blues with lots of acoustic guitar, Weissenborn slide guitar, funky blues Rhodes electric piano and raw vocals with rootsy style percussion. The mix is very warm and vintage sounding. Give it a spin and enjoy!"
