about

Nick is a prolific songwriter. Songs can come out of nowhere. In a dream, guitar in hand, or a bar napkin. His debut EP "Endlessly Awaiting the Ethereal" is some of the results. Full of energy & attitude. Melodic tunes with a big sound. In this noisy world attempting to cut through the noise is no small task. He learned a lot from that experience. It was by design to make the next record bigger and better! Stronger songs with more powerful meanings. There really is no other alternative.

His creative abilities always carry him forward. For all the guitars and sonic landscapes at his core he considers himself a minstrel. Writing songs that are potent & powerful. It's music meant to inspire, give hope, & take on the world. Like a shot of adrenaline! He's a bit of a restless spirit. It comes down to what moves you & melody. It's as simple as that in end. From the big city of Chicago out into the Middle of Nowhere. Finishing a record with an ambitious nature in humble surroundings was intense and exactly what was needed. It exceeded every expectation. The Existing oNE is on its way!

Track Name: It's All Here
It’s All Here

You can’t die ‘till truly living
As you’re holding on you still have air to breathe
Her smile is so alive it is electric
There’s a path I’m on and I don’t know where I should be
Never take a chance if you don’t feel it
I’m falling down and I needed you to stay
If I know that you don’t want to hear it
Then I’ll have to say to you go away

We don’t have to wait
‘Cos it’s all here
It’s all here today
We don’t have to wait (yeah)
‘Cos it’s all here
It’s all here today

You’re calling out to reach the heavens
As you’re fading out the breath is what you see
Her love is burning bright she has ascended
There’s a line I crossed now I’m stuck inside a dream
Never take a chance if you don’t feel it
I’m falling down and I needed you to stay
If I know that you don’t want to hear it
Then I’ll have to say to you go away

We don’t have to wait
‘Cos it’s all here
It’s all here today
We don’t have to wait (yeah)
‘Cos it’s all here
It’s all here today

We don’t have to wait
‘Cos it’s all here
It’s all here today
We don’t have to wait (yeah)
‘Cos it’s all here
It’s all here today

Track Name: Conversation
Conversation

I don’t know if she goes on, lives her life alone, follows anyone
If you feel, feel it’s wrong, you must let them know, you can take control
When it ends you’ll see what you have done…
Get rid of distractions, you just want a reaction
You don’t make any sense, you just want an argument

Feel it in your soul, don’t let anybody tell you no
Feel it in your soul, don’t let anybody tell you no

I don’t know if she has gone, or lives her life at home, follows the sun
If you see, see it wrong, you must let them know, you can’t let it go
When it ends, you’ll see what you did right…
Get rid of obsessions, you just want an attraction
You don’t make any sense, you just want an argument

Feel it in your soul, don’t let anybody tell you no
Feel it in your soul, don’t let anybody tell you no

Get rid of deception, a chemical reaction
You don’t make any sense, you just want an argument

Feel it in your soul, don’t let anybody tell you no
Feel it in your soul, don’t let anybody tell you no...

Track Name: The Gun Went Off
The Gun Went Off

Hesitation…I can’t recommend you to my friends
Separation…I won’t clip your wings to behold them
You leave your heart to fate
In your mind I won’t betray
With every whisper
I’ll count the days till we meet again
I’ll turn away from the fall
When there’s nothing left to save
Look inside the hollowed hall
Where the sound has been breaking

Inside your eyes I have to know
Beneath the shade you let it go
You know the show it must go on
Too late to run the gun went off

Penetration…the hole within your soul is aching
Levitation…you’re floating on a cloud that’s fading
I’m on your side we have the time
Don’t let it all crash down
As you watch your wishes crumble
I’ll find a light way out
I’ll stay away from it all
When there’s nothing left but hate
Take my hand in love
Or will fall apart again

Inside your eyes I have to know
Beneath the shade you let it go
You know the show it must go on
Too late to run the gun went off

Track Name: I'm Not Sure What I'm Here For
I’m Not Sure What I’m Here For

You’ve been sent here, bring your love
Tell me what we’re waiting for
Stop wasting all these days
Into shadow, goes a pawn
That’s been holding on too long
To what they say…

I’m not sure what I’m here for
I get a little bit closer everyday
When you’ve been gone, for way too long
Lean on my shoulder, I’ll keep you safe

Holy Ghost, Divine Dove
Shining light from above
To guide us through the flames
With one heart, you can touch
All the victims of the blood
That we shed…

I’m not sure what I’m here for
I get a little bit closer everyday
When you’ve been gone, for way too long
Lean on my shoulder, I’ll keep you safe

I’m not sure what I’m here for
I get a little bit closer everyday
When you’ve been gone, for way too long
Lean on my shoulder, I’ll keep you safe

Track Name: Sad With Laughter
Sad With Laughter

We sit and we talk waiting by the water
And it feels brand new
It takes us long to walk
We don’t have the alter that they will
Memories are lost
Reminding me that I don’t remember you
And I’ll pay the cost of surrender if I do
Take it all for granted
You might find yourself
Stranded along a road
You don’t know where to

I need something real
She will not reveal
Lower your shield
You’ve got to
Oh…You’ve got to feel

I see it all the time you talk the way you want to
Sad with laughter he knows you cry
Something has gone with you
I hear the angels gathering everyone
Wants to break through
The fantasy has ended
Then suddenly it happens
Before you go the magic has you

I need something real
She will not reveal
Lower your shield
You’ve got to
Oh…You’ve got to feel

In the midst of the night
Out of time there’s a better way home
The afterlife holds your sight
Sad inside & you’re all alone
When you’ve got it all
All…

I need something real
She will not reveal
Lower your shield
You’ve got to
Oh…You’ve got to feel

You look so beautiful
In the light of morning
Springtime yawning
You feel like you’re a ghost
Of the person you used to know
You better stay awake
You don’t want to be all alone
I can’t believe a word you’re saying
‘Cos you left me out
Ya you left me out
In the cold…
