To call Nick Harper a superlative singer/songwriter could put his highly lauded guitar talent in the shade, and to call him a guitarist’s guitarist might slight his distinctive, soulful voice and passionate songs. Segueing from his own compositions to well-loved covers he makes his own – Nick often takes on Presley, Zappa, Jeff Buckley, Led Zeppelin, Monty Python and Public Enemy (yes, on an acoustic guitar).
“Harper has so much musicianship in him that it just leaks out all over the place.” The Times
