Cornish singer-songwriter Nick Mears is back today with a brand new single to bring a little sunshine into the grey Autumn and Winter months. Southern Skies is his first new material since the release of his debut album Life’s Golden Era, and is available on all streaming platforms now.
A mix of laid-back, Laurel Canyon acoustic guitars and upbeat poppy vocals, Southern Skies in on soundcloud below.
“Southern Skies was inspired from a road trip around New Zealand,” explains the young singer-songwriter. “Me and my girlfriend were sat outside our camper van near the surf town of Raglan on a beautiful evening, under a starry sky, getting excited about the adventure ahead to ‘Milford Sound’ – the so called 8th wonder of the world. It was here that I wrote the chords and penned the first words to the new song.”
Originally training as an artist, Mears soon found another calling and dramatically changed his life to become a working musician. Gigging around Cornwall and the area’s vibrant surf scene, he soon amassed a collection of songs that he eventually took around the world. Travelling and playing shows became his passion, and with more new material on the horizon he’s set to find more new fans and experiences on the road ahead.
