As soon as I heard Nick Gill’s new album Waves Are Only Water, I knew he would be a great fit for Before The Concert. When I found out he was going to be in New York City for a show at Rockwood Music Hall, I got in touch with Nick to meet up for a quick session.
Nick Gill is a singer/songwriter from Alabama (who lives in Nashville) and has a unique voice. A day doesn’t go by where I don’t listen to at least one song from him. After meeting up on Allen St. near Rockwood Music Hall, I thought it would be cool just to film in the bike path/walking area on Allen St. I scouted out that section on Google Maps and it proved to be a nice spot where cars go by and gave a nice New York City feel to it.
I filmed Nick performing “By The Way,” which is also my favorite from him. It was cold outside so we only filmed one song. I’m just happy it wasn’t as cold as it was the next day, then I don’t know what we would have done if we couldn’t film outside. I would have liked to have filmed more songs but perhaps another time when it’s warmer outside.
At one point, Nick was trying to perform the song and couldn’t hold in the laughter when a bike rider shouted out to him. So look out for a quick outtake clip coming soon.
Thanks to Nick Gill for being a sport and performing in the cold! See some photos from Nick’s set at Rockwood Music Hall below or all of them at SkaPunkPhotos.com.
