I’m a full time professional singer/songwriter and acoustic guitarist. I was born raised in London, now living near Southampton on the south coast of the UK. I have been likened to Matchbox 20, John Martyn, Sting and Elvis Costello.
I perform as an original singer songwriter as well as a performer and compere in the Is This Thing On Show.

“Kicking in with a slick and smooth guitar intro immediately offering a Del Amitri-esque sound, the recording itself is beautifully crisp and shiny, and with the addition of some subtle keys in the background, the atmosphere is magically set.” – See more at: http://blackjaz.co.uk/reviews#sthash.GMoDGyx8.dpuf

“The shadow of Glen Tilbrook in post Squeeze mode hangs occasionally around the periphery and the more introspective moments remind me of Colin Vearncome...”
I strive to create songs with emotion and honesty and that tell stories from my life, from other people’s lives and some other stuff that I just make up!
I perform up to 2 x 45 minute sets of my own original songs and longer if required. I like to create an intimate and friendly atmosphere at my gigs, engaging with the audience and giving them the opportunity to engage with me. We have fun!
I have a healthy mailing list and produce an almost weekly newsletter that reaches close to 200 people who are interested in what I do.
“There is something wonderfully refreshing and direct about the songwriting and delivery of Nick Tann. I’m reviewing “Bought Online”, but could easily be reviewing the physical copy of the same album, “Bought At A Gig”. By and large this album is Nick Tann, his twelve string and a great selection of songs. At times it’s edgy stuff, bordering on raw, but, to use that most twee of phrases, it’s all real. This is an album that is honest about what it conveys and in many ways that is particularly true of the instrumental sections of the album, where the guitar really does get to lead” Fatea Magazine
I like to create an atmosphere at my gigs. I love a sense of drama as well as a sense of humour
I am a great fan of Twitter and have over 3000 followers including Stephen Fry!
“Nick Tann, not only understands the power of a well-crafted tune, he also has the ability to make this basic concept a reality” Dave Franklin – GreenMan Publications
