Nick and the Sun Machine are a four piece folk/pop/rock band from St Albans, Hertfordshire. Their music is a diverse mixture of challenging and melodic, electric and acoustic, switching between blistering hard rock one minute to intricate folk balladry the next.
This unique concoction of progressive yet approachable music is brought together by the band’s powerful and distinctive four-part harmonies giving the songs a sense of unity amongst the various musical styles.
With an array of eclectic compositions at their disposal (by front man Nick Stephenson) and innovative arrangements provided by the rest of the band, Nick and the Sun Machine are gaining serious momentum and are headed in exciting new directions after a busy 12 months. They have launched an album and an acoustic EP, supported by the million selling Toploader and have performed at various UK festivals including Standon Calling, Wilkestock, Folk by the Oak and very recently the Isle of Wight Festival.
