Sofar Winchester godHe’s just so good! Tom Robinson said BBC6 Music

 “…a voice that manages to combine power with control, soaring when required but with an inbuilt soulfulness as its default setting Green Man Music

“Nick takes a well-trodden genre but rips it apart and rearranges its innards to create something altogether different. It’s unpredictable, edgy, raw…” Melitta Dennett BBC

An enthusiastic advocate of social media, especially Twitter & Periscope (over 6000 followers) He boasts a mailing list close to 500 and counting, Youtube Channel, Soundcloud and a lively Facebook page (over a 1000 likes)

“Nick writes quality songs and performs them with that strong and characterful voice, the jazz and bluesy touches in the sound only give emphasis to that.” Fatea Magazine

Woking mic

“Nick Tann performs the tender ballads of a tormented yet optimistic heart. He goes beyond the classic stripped down simplicity of an acoustic album, lifting his songs with charming instrumentations. 3AM is an album with well structured, folk like ballads, clever harmonies and lyrics that shine. Without a doubt Nick Tann is one to look out for.” Wayout Music


“Talented new singer, Nick Tann certainly delivers with a Counting Crows influenced yet original style. He mixes acoustic jazz, a little R&B groove, big, open acoustic guitar chords and harmonica together with soulful and powerful singing makes him one that stands out from the crowd.” Rock n Reel Magazine. read less
