He anticipates a remarkable experience as he plays at the precise solstice moment, 9:50 PM, where music and nature’s artistry will beautifully blend, connecting everyone to the world around us. He eagerly looks forward to it.

His introspective lyrics accompany the focal point of his music. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of his solo debut album ‘First Mind,’ which received a Mercury Prize nomination, Nick will perform on stage at 9.50pm during the pinnacle moment of the Solstice. Through his music, he aims to connect concertgoers with the natural world and the passage of time. Popular singles from the album include ‘Fever To The Form’ and ‘Cucurucu’.
