Originally from Truro, N.S. and now based in Halifax, Scott Nicks has been steadily building his name in the east coast music scene.
Nicks released his a five-song demo recording in late-2006 and followed it up with the full-length, A Song for Tuesday Blues, in 2008. For that recording, Keith Doiron (bass) and Jordan Murphy (drums) were added to The Scott Nicks Band. Brad Lahead of Long, Long, Long also performed on the record.
In December, the band released a new record, Slowly, and recently added guitarist Justin McGrath to the group while Billy Habib Taylor (Tupperware Remix Party) fills in on bass while Doiron is in school.
