Nick Ward Short Info

Nick Ward is a Welsh singer-songwriter who takes his cue from the great British song writing traditions laid down by the likes of Ray Davies, Elvis Costello and Lennon/McCartney.
His songs are thoughtful picture-postcards of life, love and longing which veer between choppy, electric guitar-fuelled pop to stirring acoustic-backed vocal harmonies.
Nick has been signed to independent label, Audiofile Records, since 2009 & is about to release his 5th album.
Nick tours both as a solo acoustic act & with full band.
He has, since his first release – the Rag and Bone EP, received critical acclaim on BBC Radio Wales where he has recorded a number of sessions. He has also been featured in session on BBC 6Music.

Nick has secured several high-profile support slots over recent years, including: The Alarm, The Christians, Simon Townshend and Glenn Tillbrook. He performs regularly either as a solo acoustic act or with his full four piece band.
His first album, Outside Looking In was released in 2009, which struck a definite New Wave chord with a modern edge. Then with Pink Bay (2010) Nick mixed sunny ballads with intelligent pop.
His 2012 album Cadenza took a slight departure as Nick experimented with a more acoustic and stripped-down sound. 2014saw the release of : World in Reverse is a livelier, band-oriented collection of songs with a live feel.
November 2016 sees the release of his 5th album : Phonus Balonus, a collection of stripped down, acoustic songs.

“This Town is a great song by an excellent Welsh songwriter.” Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales
“One of the best Welsh singer songwriters around today.” Alan Thompson, BBC Radio Wales
