KIAC & DCMF Present:
Nick Ferrio & Doug Paisley
Tues, Feb 25th
Doors open: 7:30
Nick Ferrio is a recording artist and songwriter from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. His music is deeply steeped in the traditions of country and folk, at once starkly honest and filled with tall tales. He often tours Canada and Europe with a rotating cast of sentimental ladies and gentlemen under the moniker of Nick Ferrio & His Feelings.
His first album, “Introducing Nick Ferrio & His Feelings,” was released in September 2012 to glowing reviews in the Globe & Mail, Magnet, Exclaim!, and No Depression, who said the album “captures the spirit of country music at its best.” He followed that release with a seven-inch record produced by Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo in the Spring of 2013.
Nick Ferrio continues to consistently write, record and perform throughout North America and Europe.
With the kind of understatement that’s typical of the man, Doug Paisley describes his wondrous new album Strong Feelings as “just 10 new songs. It’s a lot less simple and unadorned than other recordings I’ve made, but it’s just as earnest and straightforward as what I’ve done before.”
This is all in keeping with the Toronto songwriter’s low-key approach to his art, preferring to let his songs speak for themselves. A fact borne out by the nature of the effusive praise given to Paisley’s last effort, 2010’s Constant Companion. MOJO, who included it in their top ten albums of the year and extolled its “rare kind of purity”, declared that “an anti-star is born”. Rolling Stone called it a “nearly perfect singer-songwriter record”, while UNCUT singled it out as “sure-footed and ageless…uncluttered, sad and unerringly lovely.”
