Australian recording artist and producer Peter Nic has been playing in bands, ensembles from an early age and furthering his music education through The Elder Conservatorium of Music in South Australia. He had begun to develop more of a voice for the guitar through his studies and during 2012 was selected as a Scholarship Finalist for the James Morrison Generations in Jazz Scholarship held in Mount Gambier, a National event with guest artists from around the globe including Gordon Goodwin and his Big Phat Band. In his final year at the conservatorium he was awarded Top Jazz Guitar Undergraduate and was once again a finalist for the James Morrison Scholarship. Artists such as John Mayer, Jamie Cullum, Derek Trucks, J Dilla, Musiq Soulchild and Robert Glasper had become a steady companion over the years influencing the sounds of his albums 'Here We Be' and 'Chances Are', released in 2014 and 2016. Upon the release of his third studio album 'Alonely', Nic has transformed his sound and approach to recording in a fresh new way. A little less of an 'exercising' guitar based album, lyrical content and production has taken the lead on this one. Only a couple of years ago his debut album 'Here We Be' was released and since then the growing has begun. An unexpected blend between popular music, rock and jazz chordal harmony, his influences ranging from modern to vintage have created an in-between genre that has been finding it's way for a few years now. "There's something about being alone that affects your thoughts, emotions and life choices. Imagine that you've decided to take on a life of artistic creativity which by the way, has no guaranteed income or reliability and you're constantly falling into a lull because every door you knock on has nobody home so you essentially don't know where to go."
