Chameleon, Nick Lovell, so effortlessly makes the transition from soft folk to hard rock in the same song that you have to rub your eyes to make sure that you’re witnessing the same person performing! His rousing performance of ‘Proud Mary’ showcases his effortless transition between acoustic, folk-blues storyteller and rock band frontman.

This video of The Rolling Stones’ ‘Honky Tonk Women’ gives a flavour of Nick Lovell’s sound, both as a solo singer and with the addition of an accompanying four-piece band.

The musical ensemble adds a bigger sound which will create a party atmosphere. His band offers such uptempo numbers as ‘Uptown Funk’, ‘Walking on Sunshine’ and ‘Footloose’.

As a solo artist, however, Nick Lovell sings a more mellow combination of ballads and rock songs which evoke a chilled vibe. His acoustic song list includes ‘Lean on Me’ by Bill Withers, ‘I Won’t Back Down’ by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and ‘I Heard it Through the Grapevine’ by Marvin Gaye.

The folk-blues rock of ‘Give Me One Reason’ by Tracy Chapman is an eminently fitting choice for Nick Lovell’s sound as he seamlessly manages to combine a hard rock sound with a soft folk sound in the same song. Nick tells a story when he sings lyrics that grabs you from the moment he opens his mouth and compels you to listen intently all the way through to the end.

Nick Lovell has a passion for performing classic rock songs, whether at a fast pace with his band or in a more reflective, thoughtful version. He offers ‘Honky Tonk Women’ as an acoustic version or as a dance party number.
