Nick has been a bass player in many bands over the years from midlands rock bands to Manchester new wave band The Katchies, worked with Greek singer Vana Veroutis and former Band Of Joy members, in more recent years with the Fabulous Boogie boys on upright bass, and for the last eight years with the Sarah Warren Band.
Nick and Richie met in the late ‘80’s and started a band which over many years evolved into Hancoxx where Richie and Hannah still perform. In that time the pair also performed as a duo and are delighted to be working together again.
Having always had a passion for American Southern Rock/Country/Bluegrass and being influenced by the wealth of Nashville singer songwriters The Haunted Souls sees a move for Nick to guitar and mandolin with a leaning towards Americana folk and country, particularly on the song-writing front.
His list of influences is endless but would have to include Gene Vincent, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Steve Marriott, CSNY, Little Feat, Johnny Cash, George Jones and Steve Earle.
