Nick Dickies


Hello, I'm Nick Dickies, a nickname because of the shirts I used to wear. Thanks for visiting my page!I've got years of experience doing music in a wide spectrum of genres and sounds: from electro, dnb and prog rock to doom metal. A lot of songs I do can be too complex and have taken too much time, so I'm doing this challenge to improve my workflow.For this February I want to write and record some cool, simple yet still catchy songs. They're gonna be speedy noisy rock songs (grunge, punk, shoegaze) that uphold the K.I.S.S. principle: Keep It Simple, Stupid. Hmmm... I think I'll name my album that, "Keep It Simple, Stupid"!

Nick Dickies: Writing, guitars, bass, vocals, drums, production. Weapon of choice: PRS SE Custom.
