Bio

Offshore Projects is the musical project for Jonas Nicholls, the former singer & songwriter for much-loved Sydney band from Sures. Nicholls sings tales of moving out of home at the tender age of "way too old". It’s an anthology of his everyday failures and anxieties coated in a tongue-in-cheek charm. Lead single ‘Sham’ chronicles a delayed coming-of-age while navigating through a modern a world of half-truths.

After taking a break to travel in 2018, he returned to Sydney and recorded 5 songs to tape with Simon Berkelman at Golden Retriever Studios, Marrickville. This is the Offshore Projects debut self-titled EP out Aug 23, 2019 through Viscera Arts.

That sense of grounded intimacy really shines through not just in the lyrics, but the style of guitar-work and in the general vibe of the songs too. The stories speak to life’s small wins and brushing off the anxieties that plague us daily.

“These are the first songs I wrote after moving out of my parents’ home. That’s when the tone of my song writing changed dramatically, everything sounded fun and breezy again. A feeling that I hadn't captured or felt since writing songs as a kid.” – Jonas Nicholls

I LOVE this song. I love the warmth and the genuine affection in it and the lyrics connected with me straight away. Tell the ones you love you love 'em.
