Nick Peay is a Louisville, KY based singer/songwriter, with over 15 years of songwriting experience. Over the years, he has been honing his craft of songwriting through practice, schooling and constantly striving for improvement. Peay decided that his new material would sound the best without heavy production. Instead, he focused on the idea that great songs were great even with one instrument and vocals. On this EP, Peay focused his energy on lyrics, melody and the song itself.
Peay released two EP’s in August of 2011, Life & Love & Us and Love: A Ukulele Tribute To The Beatles, both of which stayed in moderate rotation on Louisville’s WFPK, one of the top AAA stations in the country. He released two original Christmas songs in November of 2011. Peay splits his musical time between his solo project, his rock band OK Zombie and other side projects as he experiments with different genres.
Peay says,“I try to write songs that will make people think. All of my new material deals with current social issues that people need to be thinking about, from the overuse of social media, to surviving in the down economy, to the continuing war in the Middle East. I mean, who’s writing protest music anymore? I hope I can help people begin to think about, and maybe do something about, some of these issues.”
