Nick Saxton is an English Singer/Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has gained recognition for his brand of euphoric heartland rock, poetic lyrics and his passionate and commanding live performances.
Born in North-West London, Nick began playing piano and writing music at a young age. Early musical influences include Bob Marley and memorable summers listening to Van Morrison on trips to the coast.
With the money from a weekend job, Nick bought his first guitar and began to get involved in local blues and folk nights. Exposure to roots music, along with brief stints in several bands focused Nick's writing style.
At the centre of my songwriting there's always a blues connection; fear, empathy, desire and hope.
The Way Home needs to be snapped up by a teen drama like Skins, be the soundtrack to a winning goal at a footy match, or simply be the next number one in the charts.
