about

Killer melodies meet knockout vocals on Nick Batterham’s debut album, Second Lovers.

Singer-songwriter Nick Batterham has produced an exquisite album of acoustic folk sounds, mingling at times with power driven rock. With its lush production many moments immerse you in a blissful soundscape while never losing sight of its emotional heart.

Batterham’s recording process is an extension of a live performance, his songs remain true to the emotions behind the lyrics, often recording the day a song is written so his playing is not over-rehearsed. For Nick it is about compulsion not calculation. The results are truly captivating. Second Lovers was recorded at Batterham’s home studio.

Each song is a moment captured. Some tracks are darkly crafted with whiskey-soaked instrumentation. Dragonfly remains untouched - just the live recording. With serendipitous timing, at the end of Dragonfly, a plane flew over the house just as he sings, “I’d fly away”. A moment of divine imperfection forever embedded in the song. You can also find beautifully crafted video clips for Dragonfly and From Now On up on YouTube.

Nick Batterham is no newcomer to the music scene, he has found his musical way via integral groups and projects, such as singer-songwriter in Blindside (single of the week in UK Spin Magazine) supporting acts like Smashing Pumpkins . Toured the USA and UK in ’94 with The Earthmen playing a bunch of supports (INXS, Buffalo Tom, Lemonheads, Teenage Fanclub), their debut album received 5-star reviews and an ARIA nomination for Best Debut Album in ‘97. As well as writing, performing and producing his own music Nick also plays guitar in Cordrazine, producing their latest album, amongst others and works in film sound design (2009 AFI Award nominee).
