You should come to our show this Saturday because…
We’re playing with Mr. Jenkins.
Nick is one of the best drummers in Charleston, nay, SC. I met him when he was playing with Run Dan Run. I soon found out that he is quite the talented individual. Artist, multi-instrumentalist… the guy does it all. (You’ll see some of his drawings later this year in a collaborative project.)
His music is heavy on lo-fi sounds. I’ve always liked his ear for beauty. It’s like the samples he uses redeem the sounds themselves. His melodies are catchy, his voice soothing, his instrumentation creative. And when Dan contacted me about joining Hearts and Plugs a little over a year ago, one of the most exciting parts of the deal was being able to be professionally associated with Mr. Jenkins.
Nick has spent time in New York for the last few years, but has returned to SC. He is incredibly prolific, so when you visit his bandcamp, you may be overwhelmed I encourage you to wade through the songs. Find some that you love. The music is affordable, or free in some cases, so download away.
Not only is Nick opening the show, he’ll also be joining The Lovely Few with keys and drums during our set. It will make for a very special performance. You won’t want to miss it.
See you Saturday!
