*Set times: Nick Howard opens the show at 9pm, followed by Preston Gunderson.
Nick Howard could never be accused of sitting still, in the last three years alone the British singer-songwriter has played 500 shows across Europe and the US, enjoyed his first iTunes number 1, packed in several headlining tours and even managed to learn German in two months and win the hugely popular TV show The Voice of Germany. Nick released his eagerly awaited fourth album ‘Living In Stereo’ in 2014 and is currently in the studio working on his fifth album, due for release in the Fall of 2016.
‘Living In Stereo’ included his hit single 'Untouchable' (co-written and produced with Grammy nominated writer/producer Toby Gad) which was released in Europe in 2014 and was supported by fantastic radio play & several notable TV appearances including a performance in front of 1 million people at the Brandenburg Gate on New Year's Eve.
Nick’s musical journey began in New York, where he had moved as a 22 year old to pursue his music career. He spent several years working various 9-5 jobs (secretly booking gigs and writing songs whilst pretending to work) in addition to working as a waiter and bartender at night (where he claims he was the worst bartender in the city) to support his dream. He would write, record and perform whenever and wherever possible (he jokes that his first show was at such an obscure venue that even the Google van couldn't find it) and by having his music used over 40 times in TV shows such as Pretty Little Liars, The Hills, Jersey Shore, Switched at Birth, Army Wives, LA Ink and 90210, Nick was able to support himself as an independent artist.
After touring with bands such as Lifehouse & Boyce Avenue in Europe and supporting the likes of Train, Eric Hutchinson and Gavin DeGraw in the US, Nick managed to build a loyal fan base in both continents and auditioned for The Voice of Germany as a way to introduce his music to a bigger audience, choosing Germany because his fans there were the first to embrace and support his music. Nick learned to speak German just two months before the first show.
Nick has spent the majority of the last few years on the road in the US and Europe promoting 'Living in Stereo', playing over 600 shows to over 100,000 fans all over the world. For the last few months of 2014 Nick supported Eric Hutchinson and Tristan Prettyman on their 31 city US tour. Due to an overwhelming response from new fans, Nick set out on his own 11 city headlining tour during which some shows sold out in just a few days. In the Summer of 2015 Nick played 30 shows across the US with Australian artist Lenka before headlining another European tour of his own in late 2015.
With a new album coming in the Fall of 2016, Nick will hit the road in the US and Europe on a 60 date tour which includes 22 dates opening for Boyce Avenue in the US.
Make sure to catch Nick at a show while you can, he doesn’t sit still for long.
