While Nicky William appreciates and is inspired by older americana and folk artists, he is drawn to the itchy and edgy outsiders, which leads to his music often being a reflection of both worlds. Influenced by artists such as Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith and Nick Cave, Nicky William released his debut album 2017, the melancholic alternative-folk record "Set your loved ones free, we have you surrounded".
Nicky's vision and ambition is to find new ways to make music and realize song ideas that do not feel obvious or simple. On his new EPs "I Want to Feel it All" and "I Wanna be Bad", he has taken out the turns and to some extent gone beyond the melancholy alternative-folk sphere for an experimental, ambitious sound and a complex songwriting that takes greater risks than before.
