“This... is the starting point for a new musical endeavour, and Iʼm beyond excited for the journey to come.”- Nick Earle
“I have seen Nick perform Live to promote his new CD Breaking New Ground. from the moment he started on stage I was entranced for the entire show. What incredible talent, I was lucky to witness. I was in awe witnessing the perfection and accuracy of his guitar playing especially the lead runs of the blues and rock. Incredible. My compliments also to all 3 musicians the talents of the Bass guitar player and drummer were not overlooked by me nor my friends. Well done Nick Earl.”
