Catch Release Records signs Nick Van Breda.

Catch Release Records is delighted to announce the signing of Sydney indie-folk artist Nick Van Breda for the release of his new single ‘The World And The Everyday’. The upcoming AA side release will be available in both digital and 7-inch vinyl form, accompanied by 2012’s critically acclaimed single ‘Think About’.

“Love a good story teller and this man is it and what a multi instrumentalist – watch this space.”

“There’s a fantastic energy and urgency to this song. If you like Jonathan Boulet’s ecstatic moments then you’ll like this one (Think About).”

“Nick’s journey has been one I’ve followed with great interest for a long while. ‘Think About’ was one of my favourite songs of 2012 and when the opportunity came up to work with Nick on this upcoming release, the decision was a no brainer.”  – David Noordhoff, Catch Release Records.

Nick Van Breda has been a mainstay on the Australian music scene for the last decade both as a drummer and frontman for bands such as Staying At Home, Animal Shapes and Lights Out. Over the past two years Nick has been releasing music as a solo artist working alongside upcoming Sydney producer Dylan Adams (Sticky Fingers, Sailmaker, Lo!). “The World And The Everyday” and “Think About” are the first taste of Nick’s forthcoming debut album due late 2013.  National tour dates in support of this release will be announced shortly.

In the lead up to this release Nick is hitting road with Sydney artist Zzzounds in support of the 7-inch split release the two artist came together on in late 2012 – and to showcase the ridiculous banjo duo the split spawned, Pinch Hitter.

As a teen Nick Van Breda taught a ten year old Dave Drayton (Zzzounds) to play sax at the local Primary School and since then, their musical paths have continued to cross. Finally after years of plugging away on separate endeavors, the two have teamed up for a split release on 7-inch vinyl via Tenzenman Records.

Each contributing one track, both inspired by Dave Drayton’s (Zzzounds) move into the basement of Nick’s house, and recorded by Nick over a weekend in a beach house on the New South Wales south coast, this split shows two unique approaches to the solo songwriter mode with a guitar, a voice, and little more.

Be sure to catch Nick on the road with Zzzounds and Pinch Hitter through March / April.
