Since the release of Pretty Violet Stain’s debut E.P. Blush in 1997, Shane Nicholson has inhabited a rare space in the music industry: songwriter, recording artist, producer/engineer, multi-instrumentalist, guitar pedal builder, whiskey-enthusiast, motorcycle-lover, and musical mentor.

Shane has received three ARIA awards – for his solo album Hell Breaks Loose in 2015 and for his hit collaborations with Kasey Chambers – Rattlin’ Bones and Wreck and Ruin. He has also won 11 CMAA Golden Guitar Awards – including 2021 APRA Song of the Year – and an APRA award. He has been nominated twice for an Americana Music Association Award.

Shane’s latest album Living in Colour, his seventh solo studio album, was released in August and has been nominated for an ARIA award and five Golden Guitar Awards.

His production credits include Alex Lloyd, Michael Waugh, Beccy Cole, Tori Forsyth & Camille Trail.

He has three cats.

“Nicholson’s is a uniquely compelling voice in Australian songwriting – it lives and breathes in the songsmith’s singular melodies, crooked humour, and short, pithy lines gently delivered.” Rolling Stone Magazine

“One of the country’s finest songwriters.” Rhythms Magazine

“I have real admiration for Shane Nicholson’s musical sensibilities.” Rodney Crowell

“Shane Nicholson doesn’t fool me with his tough guy exterior and his refusal to smile in photographs, the guy is a marshmallow, a poet, a genius.” Beccy Cole

“He paints pictures, he sets the scenes, and he takes me to special places in my imagination.” Russell Morris
