Artist Bio (Long)
Nick Gonnering, is a blues-inspired, soul-infused, folk singer-songwriter. His fusion of funk and jazz chordings compliments his inspiring, reflective lyrics and soulful melodies. While he is a solo artist, his stylings add rhythmic and percussive elements that can sound like a full band, and he often accompanies himself with a looper.
His newest album "Wandering" is an ambient acoustic parabola. Exploring a sonic realm inspired by an Alaskan Sunset over a beautiful shoreline and a hike along a Misty River. This textural instrumental album has undertones of John Butler's “Ocean, and instrumental Zeppelin work (Think "White Summer-Black Mountain Side" and "Bron-y-Aur Stomp"). All while painting a beautiful sonic picture that is at once transformative and peaceful.
His never-ending exploration of the musical world is always feeding his creative side and inspiring new sounds and techniques that most recently have been rooted in Flamenco and Fingerstyle guitar playing.
To add to his diverse musical palette, Nick’s yogic journey over the past 12 years has led him into the realm of sound healing and has allowed his writing to work into the vibrations of the human body. During live yoga classes, he uses a custom electronic instrument board to create healing sound-scapes for yoga practitioners to more deeply tune into their practice, while providing sympathetic tuning for the natural vibrations of a healthy body.
