“Vern's songs greatly impress me with their hooks and skilful arrangements. Regardless of the style he works in, he retains a strong sense of melody and harmony. His playing and singing are always impeccable, tasteful and perfectly suited to the song.”
Vern Nicholson is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and purveyor of folk 'n' roll: spirit-filled sad songs made better. Drawing on his classic-rock DNA, pop instincts and folk sensibility, he crafts soulful and melodic music, creating a vibe that's gutsy, warm and inviting. His 12-song solo debut, Linden Tree near the Water, was released in November 2017 on Grinning Zone Records (GZ-101).
