About this event

Nick Shoulders

Here to put the "Try" in Country

Wielding an ethereal croon and masterful whistle crafted from a lifetime chasing lizards through the Ozark hills, Nick Shoulders is a living link to roots of country music with a penchant for the absurd. Combining his family's deep ties to regional traditional singing with his years of playing to crowded street corners, Nick has sought to forge a hybridized form of raucously clever country music; born of forgotten rocky hollers and bred to confront the tensions of the 21st century South. As evidenced by his surreal album art and anachronistic songwriting, Nick’s creative output is steeped in the complicated history of his beloved home of rural Arkansas, but crafted as a conscious rebuke of country music’s blind allegiance to historical seats of power and repression. With a kind word and a mean yodel, Nick hopes to put the ‘Try’ in country.

Riley Downing

“...like Johnny Cash with a hangover… His brain is abuzz with sounds and ideas, which makes his solo debut a thrill.” - Uncut Magazine

"No matter how well Start It Over fits into the current realities of the world — and it does — Downing’s voice and lyrics will continue speaking for generations to come, and in one way or another, will keep conjuring memories of bygone eras." - No Depression

"...an ode to staying hopeful and appreciating life's happy moments, no matter how small they might be. Alongside the whiskey-soothed lyrical storytelling, there’s a warm, subtle grit to the instrumentation that you can’t help but be allured by. It evokes that same kind of cathartic release as cracking open a beer at the end of a long day – it’s easy, carefree and served with a laidback philosophy of trusting that everything’s gonna be just fine." - Holler

”Riley Downing’s Start It Over harnesses the beauty and power of music.” - The Boot

"Once you're on board with Downing's elusive, often entrancing vibe, you'll wonder why it took a pandemic for him to hit center stage." 8 out of 10 Stars - Holler

"...the music has that magical dusky glow, as if the recording sessions were being illuminated by candles and Christmas tree lights and fueled by rye whiskey and weed." - Paste Magazine

"Undoubtedly, you’ll be lured in by this project that will have you wondering how it could feel so comforting and familiar on one level and completely refreshing on another." - Glide Magazine

"Start It Over is a remarkably satisfying record that gets better every time you go back to it." - Americana Highways
