Guess who is reading the weather this week on Nightvale Radio?
I’ll be playing with my full band, and if all goes well with this show I might have some good news about releasing my record. Please do make it down and say hi!
Is also looks like I’ll be filling in for one of Red Kite’s guitarists for their Reading show on April 26th. Pretty excited about blasting out some of those hooks.
In other news, I’ll be guest appearing at the Oliver Wilde concert at the Lexington on April 3rd. Singing my guest verse and playing guitar on Perret’s Brook. In case I haven’t harped on about it before, Oliver’s new record is sooooo good.
See you somewhere soon! x - Nicholas
I’ve gone and posted new track Here I Land in celebration of hitting 100,000 SoundCloud followers. I’ve been sitting on this song for ages and it’s one of my favourite songs on the new record, I hope you like it too.
Thanks everyone who came down to see us at The Underbelly last week. We had a blast. I developed these photos in a tub of neapolitan ice-cream. All taken by Mr Jim Stevenson.
We’re slaying the Rattlesnake in Islington next, on May 30th, see y’all there?

Nicholas Stevenson’s biography claims that he was “found as a child wandering a North American wood on all fours.” While we doubt this, there is a dreamlike quality to Stevenson’s lo-fi folk jams that makes you half believe that it could be true. His quieter songs have an ethereal tenderness that recalls the likes of Elliott Smith, while his louder moments bring to mind Weezer’s scuzzy geek rock.
We love how Nicholas leaves comments for other SoundClouders, not to mention his beautiful artwork – which he creates himself! Way to go, Nicholas.

About time I think for a little peek of my record! Volcanos courtesy of yours truly.
I’ll be playing this and some other badass little numbers at The Underbelly in Hoxton tomorrow night (April 25th) at 7:45pm.
If you want to listen to Ariel while prancing around town, you can download it on Bandcamp.
See you soon friends, - Nicholas
Oliver Wilde wrote this super little song and got my friend Eddie Halliday and I to sing a verse on it. Have a looksy, and listen to his other songs, I can’t stop listening to ‘Twin’.
I have a couple of shows coming up soon! Starting with a show at Surya in London on Friday the 1st, event page is here. I’m playing this one solo and trying out some new stuff. Also playing are Wayter, featuring my pal Eddie Halliday. They are awesome, go see.
Next on Sunday the 3rd of June, is a show at How The Light Gets In Festival. If you fancy trekking on down to Hay on Wye it should be a blast. There are lots of talks and intelligent events too in true Hay on Wye fashion… I’ll be playing with my friend Benet of Deep Elem fame, who recorded my Aeroplane Darling EP.
See you somewhere soon, much love - Nicholas
Hilldrop Records have put out another awesome compilation record, full of mostly lesser known English lo-fi and folk stuff. This one features Dry The River, Eddie Halliday, Ursine Vulpine, my partner in sounds Oliver Wilde, the well kept secret genius Little Sea Monsters, and a ton more great stuff. Oh and the last track is by yours truly, you can listen to ‘Night Swimming’ in my soundcloud player to the left…
