Our very own Christmas song coming soon...
We’re working on a brand new song for Christmas called A Million Lights (You know when it’s Christmastime). It features the Sing-along-a-Nick trio plus our drummer Bradley. It’s taking shape really nicely and we hope to record it in the studio in a few weeks’ time. Hopefully we’ll have it ready to release for this coming festive season. More news soon!
The Christmas Satsumas Song in aid of Macmillan is here!
At last we have completed and released the long-awaited Christmas Charity Video.
The Christmas Satsuma Song Official Video in aid of Macmillan now shows on the Singalonganick channel on YouTube and we’re asking everyone to share it and make a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support to help them with their tireless efforts in supporting those with cancer and their families. Please donate if you can at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/singalonganick.
The Satsuma Song was first written for the Sing-along-a-Nick Christmas gig last year, originally called Trauma (but we thought that was probably overdoing it!). It went down so well we decided to record it in the studio with the full band and make a video. So we invited many of our staunch Sing-along-a-Nick fans to join us for the filming, suitably dressed in Christmas attire, even though it was February. We had a right giggle.
Then, of course, lockdown happened and everything ground to a halt. The recording wasn’t finished and neither was the film footage.
Then Nick decided to film himself playing all the roles in the song’s story during lockdown, recording a simple piano and vocal audio track to back it. That’s when the Lockdown version was released!
Fortunately, of course, much of that Lockdown Video footage came in very handy to edit into the Official Version you see above.
As we came closer to completing this masterpiece, we chose Macmillan as the charity to benefit from it. It’s a charity many of us will know and many (sadly) will have experienced as they carry out their fantastic, challenging work, often by unpaid volunteers. They deserve every penny we can raise – and more.
So we have many people to thank. Spencer Brooks of Spencer Brooks Music for the studio recording and production, Bradley Lucas of I Want To Shoot You for the filming of the festive customers (many takes!), the band and, where the real skill came in, editing all the footage into the work of art you now see.
And many thanks too, of course, to the support we get from our locals here at The Flowing Spring, their enthusiasm and generosity.
And thank you too for showing an interest in Sing-along-a-Nick and hopefully donating to Macmillan.
Christmas Satsuma Song – The Lockdown Video
Before the lockdown came into force we were happily working on two Christmas singles with videos. Then all the recording, creative video work and production came to a sudden halt. So, with social distancing in force, Nick set about recording and producing his one-man video of the Christmas Satsuma Song. It’s now on YouTube and facebook. Take a look on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VM5PMl4NATo Please like it, share it and subscribe to our new SingalongaNick channel.
Nick’s self-assembly piano – ready for touring!
Not wishing to lug an iron framed upright piano to gigs, nor use an electronic keyboard sitting on a stand like an ironing board, Nick has built a flat pack upright piano. It takes just five minutes to assemble! Take a look at his video on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDo2-VanC00
