In this episode of Knives & Wildrice we are brought into the most personal & powerful episode of the series – we hear about the struggle of making everything work as an independent musician and the pressures therein. Nick gives us details about the indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that is set to launch soon and he gives us a brand new song – Time & Tears.
In this episode we get a sneak peek at a new song Nick is working on based on an experience he had while on the road travelling home. Nick tells a pretty awesome story about a dream he had and how powerful it was to be on the land during the dream. A killer story AND a new song – this is a good episode of Knives & Wildrice!
In this episode of Knives & Wildrice we hear about Nick’s Ontario tour and listeners get a taste of the gruelling schedule and commitment it takes to play shows, tour and try to “make it” in the independent Canadian music scene. We hear tales of trailer troubles, sleeping on floors, empty gas tanks and late nights with great people. This episode of the podcast might change some minds as to whether you’re cut out for the road or not.
In this episode Nick takes us on the road with him as he journey’s out on a 10 day tour. He receives a bit of good news from a friend that might want to help him out with the production of the new album and the ball starts rolling towards the creation of Knives & Wildrice. Many questions still remain – funding the project, who’ll work on it, who’ll produce it and will Nick record the album with a duct tape guitar strap?
In this episode of Knives & Wildrice we hear Nick’s perspective on starting over and we hear about some of the fears and concerns he has around being in this spot. Nick talks about the frustration, slight embarrassment & the struggle of having the rug pulled out from under him in terms of not getting the funding for his next project.
In this first episode of Knives & Wildrice we catch Nick on the day he receives the news that he has not landed his grants that were to pay for his next music project. Not landing funding for an Artist can be devestating news, especially for an Artist with a family to take care of – but – this is where Knives & Wildrice begins.
