Shane Nicholson

Since making his debut with Brisbane band Pretty Violet Stain in 2000, Shane Nicholson’s career has gone from strength to strength, with numerous ARIAs and Golden Guitars collected along the way for albums such as Familiar Ghosts (2008), Bad Machines (2011) and Hell Breaks Loose, as well as for Rattlin’ Bones (2008) and Wreck & Ruin (2012) the two much-lauded collaborations with Kasey Chambers.

Shane’s new album Love and Blood is released through Lost Highway/Universal Music Australia on July 28.

“One of the country’s finest songwriters” Rhythms Magazine

“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.”
