Nigel Parry

Bio

Nigel Parry – Singer / songwriter, acoustic folk - Soulful Folkiwi Music

“...a whole spectrum of emotion with Nigel particularly excelling in his ability to present each song as a story, his mellow vocal tone ideal..,” Bright Young Folk.

“A prominent singer / guitarist with a big strong rousing voice that lends itself equally well to heartache ballads, rock & roll and sea shanties,” said Mainly Acoustic.

Nigel’s music connects intimately with the ‘folk’;? people, their lives and struggles, their causes and stories, ties with the land, links with the past and hopes for the future. Nigel believes that music can support a greater cause and serve a worthy purpose, as well as being “the most fun you can have with your clothes on.”

Described by a radio presenter as;? 'one of the finest traditional folk artists in NZ', Nigel Parry's unique mix of contemporary, traditional and early music relies heavily on his vocal arrangements. Hailing from the UK, he was originally a rock singer and turned to folk music through friends, historical events and real ale. Nigel also plays ‘alternative percussion’ in several line ups.

Nigel now lives near Wellington and in the last 5 years has performed solo, in duos and bands, at events and music venues around New Zealand, festivals and live on radio, and in the UK, France and Canada. The biggest recent performance was in front of 10,000 at the People's Climate March, from the steps of Parliament, invited to present new song When The Rain Comes.

In 2014 Nigel was voted People's Choice for the Wellington Folk Festival, performing on the main stage. The year before, he released a new studio album;? Row Out to your ship of dreams.
