Nick Drummond has been a performing songwriter for over 10 years, selling out multi-night runs at historic venues such as Seattle's Triple Door and Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley with his legendary Pacific Northwest band The Senate (hailed by A Prairie Home Companion’s Garrison Keillor for their “Brilliant Dionysian music.”) Drummond is also known for his work with his former band Impossible Bird, and Seattle Weekly has praised his songwriting as “An absolutely stellar combination of upbeat alt-folk that’s mesmerizing and radiates talent.”
His most recent album "Follow the Rivulets" released in April 2016 has been widely praised by critics and music fans alike, with Notes on Liner Notes labeling it as "one of the top albums of 2016." Featuring a hand-picked lineup of some of Seattle's finest musicians, "Rivulets" pulses with an infections groove while Nick's careful and often subtle lyricism dances gracefully on top. This is the type of music that keeps a listener coming back for more.
NICK DRUMMOND BAND was formed originally to perform the music of "Follow the Rivulets" but very quickly grew into something much bigger than any of the members initially envisioned. The band has been touring the west coast since the release of "Rivulets", gaining a loyal and growing following where ever they play. The shows are fun and upbeat affairs, featuring some of the best musicians the Seattle scene has to offer. Whether solo or with a full band, Nick's shows are not to be missed.
Nick's music has been featured in: The Bluegrass Situation, Songwriting Magazine, Americana UK, and American Songwriter.
