Written by Nick Saxon.
All instruments performed by Nick Saxon. Recorded & Mixed at Microscopic Media by Brad Klenk. Mastered by Simon Davies at the Exchange Studios, UK. Animation by Megan Jones.
Dexterous songs and an adventurer’s spirit have led this travelling Australian singer/songwriter and multi-talented artist to crafting his voice and guitar narrative around the world. From Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands, through to South America and Canada - every international and domestic gig for his Nat Geo World Traveller show has been a gift to the songwriter. Saxon is clear about his drivers.
"There are two things I really love in life: traveling and music.” - Nick Saxon
In 2004-2006 Nick Saxon toured Europe, performing and busked his way across Spain, Greece, Germany, Prague, Bulgaria, France and the UK.
Nick writes, sings & has opened for canon stalwarts such as Midnight Oil, The Violent Femmes, Katchafire, Custom Kings and Ash Grunwald.
'Burn' is Nick Saxon’s debut single, originally recorded as a demo in Lake Macquarie, NSW.
“I took a bunch of recording gear out to my folks old boat, and laid down some demos, Burn seemed to be one that stuck out for me”.
'Burn' was recorded in Toronto, NSW in 2013. Nick and his friend Brad Klenk came up with the idea of a western style of recording, since Nick was right into his Ennio Morricone phase at the time. Nick produced the track, along with the help from Brad as Co Producer.
If you’re a fan of dirty old westerns, with true grit guitar riffs and a shattered love story, then this is for you.
Nick was the only artist chosen to have toured Australia with the Australian Surf Move Festival (ASMF), playing 30 shows to capacity crowds and is performing shows with the Banff International Film Festival around Australia.
Nick Saxon’s influences can be heard, yet he embodies that quintessential quality of sounding something like all of his influences and contemporaries, yet refreshingly, unlike any of them.
