A songwriter from central/upstate New York who sings with a fragile honesty that says 'I can make every one of you tough guys cry'. Using electric and acoustic guitars with an adeptness rare in the genre...he creates songs that speak of love and longing, loss and melancholy...an American music of the heart and soul of experience. His songs are special, peculiar and glorious in their simplicity. The latest reviews for the record 'May': 'There are good, solid folk footings. There's a bit of bluegrass feel, too. There are even some jazzy lines. However, Nicholson's voice, guitar and words end up being the stars, no matter the mood. Put on 'May' when you are in the mood to take your heart on a waltz.' 'Scurries from jazz to classical to new age to pop and back again. Eclectic and intriguing, a good listen' 'As a soloist, Nicholson impresses with his ability to deliver so much with just two hands and one guitar'
