One of the best shows I've ever seen in St. John's...the room was electric the whole night!”

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 Earle.”
