Shane Nicholson + Michael Waugh


Fresh from his regular appearances on the hit ABC TV series The Recording Studio, triple ARIA award winner Shane Nicholson plays The Bridge Hotel, Castlemaine on July 27.

From his early days with Brisbane’s Pretty Violet Stain to his current status as a leading proponent of Australia’s Alternative Country / Americana scene, Shane Nicholson has become a steady and constant figure in the Australian music industry. He is highly regarded in the Alternative Country field both in Australia and the USA, and has been nominated several times at the Americana Music Awards in Nashville.

Shane has received three ARIA awards – most recently 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 CMAA 10 Golden Guitar Awards, including 2018 Male Artist of the Year, and an APRA award.

He is also in demand as a record producer with credits including Alex Lloyd, Beccy Cole, and Tori Forsyth.

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

(Hell Breaks Loose is) my current favourite album…he paints me pictures, he sets the scenes, and he takes me to special places in my imagination.” - Russell Morris

I have real admiration for Shane Nicholson's musical sensibilities. I felt honored to have a hand in the making of "One Big Mess." - 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

Shane will release the follow up to his highly acclaimed Love And Blood on Lost Highway / Universal Music Australia in early 2020.

Shane will be supported by critically acclaimed songwriter, Michael Waugh.
