Nick Christian MacDonald


Nick Christian MacDonald is a singer songwriter from Brooklyn, NY. His 7 track release, Rain Would Gather, was recorded over the years 2019 through 2021 and released in May of last year. Inspired heavily by the short stories of Raymond Carver, the majority of the songs were written as brief scenes of a relationship, and musical companions to each other. In 2022 he is playing these often moody and evocative songs live for the first time since their inception.

John Shakespear

John Shakespear inhabits the wide confluence where story flows freely into song. On his debut solo release, Spend Your Youth, John merges his dual lives as a musician and a fiction writer into a versatile, dreamy collection of folk-tinged tunes that American Songwriter has compared to the work of Fleet Foxes and Elliott Smith. Born in Boston and slow-braised in Nashville, he now lives in Brooklyn.
