Canadian Singer-Songwriter Looks to Share His Words with the World
Newfoundland, Canada – April 4, 2016 – Picking up a guitar at 11-years-old after being influenced early on by the likes of Gordon Lightfoot and local heroes, Simani, Nick Strickland found himself hooked on music. As he grew, so did his tastes and he was soon taking in everything from the pop of Elton John to the blues of Stevie Ray Vaughan. While he’s made a name for himself playing in and around where he calls home, he really finds solace being behind the scenes as the master of the lyrical content and hopes to get his words in the hands, and mouths, of well-known artists.
That’s not to say Strickland is hanging up his vocal chops. Oh no, he’s still working on his own original material as well. In fact, his song “My Only Lover” is currently in the CBC Searchlight Competition. He’s also submitted to the Paramount song competition in Nashville. While he awaits the results of that, he’s spending time in the studio creating alongside his right-hand man, Junior Strickland, who provides bass guitar, drums, helps out with lyrics and is a studio engineer whiz.
Being a singer-songwriter, the latter half of that title really has to shine, and Nick feels it does for him. He says of the songwriting process, “I try to create my songs from the heart and at the same time trying to keep it commercial.” That heart is what will continue to carry him through the music realm as he creates his own, starts to license his work, or starts constructing melodies for other artists.
