Event description

Description


Shane has become a steady and constant figure in the Australian music industry, currently
celebrating 20 years as a recording artist. From his early days with Brisbane’s Pretty Violet Stain,
through his first solo albums It’s A Movie, Faith & Science and Familiar Ghosts, his hugely
successful collaborations with then-wife Kasey Chambers Rattlin’ Bones and Wreck and Ruin,
to his more recent works Bad Machines, live album Pitch Roll & Yaw, and his latest offering,
ARIA and Golden Guitar-winning Hell Breaks Loose.
Shane is widely regarded as a major player in the Alternative Country field, not only in his native
Australia where he is the current CMAA Alternative Album of the Year recipient, but also in the
USA, having been nominated multiple times at the Americana Music Awards in Nashville.
Now also working as an in-demand producer for other recording artists and as talent scout for
Lost Highway Australia, Shane continues to proudly nurture the Australian country/roots/folk
scene.
HELL BREAKS LOOSE - REVIEWS:
Nicholson's is a uniquely compelling voice in Australian songwriting – it lives and breathes in the
songsmith's singular melodies, crooked humour, and short, pithy lines gently delivered. Hell Breaks
Loose is a candid, immersive portrait of the artist.

Gorgeous, life-affirming…his best collection yet...one of the country’s finest songwriters.
Rhythms Magazine
I have real admiration for Shane Nicholson's musical sensibilities; I felt honored to have a hand in
the making of (the track) "One Big Mess."
Rodney Crowell
Shane Nicholson doesn't fool me with his tough guy exterior and his refusal to smile in photographs, the guy is a marshmallow, a poet, a genius. This album is a game changer, his best yet, it'll get into bits of you that you didn't know you had. Also, this album makes me weep. Bastard.
Beccy Cole
My current favourite album…he paints me pictures, he sets the scenes, and he takes me to special places in my imagination.”
Russell Morris
It makes for a sharp, precise record in both music and message that stands alongside his best work.
