Nick Ferretti

Bio

I was born in the sunny seaside town of Nelson, New Zealand. The home or Pics peanut butter, Tui balm and me! I grew up immersed in music thanks to my rock and roll Mum and Dad. From the womb I was rocking out, thanks to them, to the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Mink Deville, John Hiatt and The Stones. My Dad bought me my first guitar, a half sized classical nylon string when I was 10 years old. I held it up, stared cross eyed at the fret board and said 'what the hell am I going to do with this?!!!' I started busking in the streets when I was 12, after a few lessons but mainly self taught and from there on I knew that there was nothing else I wanted to do with my life, but music.

Since then I have grown up playing the streets, travelling a little, playing gigs, weddings, functions. I was at University in Christchurch later on and formed a band called 'The Weight' named after the great song by The Band. With Danny Sugar on the bass and Dave Jiminez on the drums. We gigged for a while and recorded a few tracks and to this day they are still family to me and our musical chemistry is undeniable. I also met my future wife, Tanya aka to American Indian folk as (Padfoot)

I traveled onto Melbourne for a few years after the Christchurch earthquake and it was there that I really started to take my songwriting to a new level. I was busking the nights and sleeping the days, in a bit of a haze but during this time met some inspiring characters and escaped from a few tricky situations! I also spent some time in Tonga for some Island inspiration for an album I was writing at the time. Since then I have returned all limbs intact, reunited with the love of my life and we have a beautiful little 11 month old boy, Solomon. Who already can do a decent drum roll and attack a few killer chords! We traveled New Zealand with my music, busking, gigs and a radio show in 'Bang Bang' our washed out lime green '58 Bedford house bus and landed in Auckland where I recorded my latest album 'Back to the Dust' at Roundhead Studio's. I had the privilege of working with Danny Sugar and Dave Jiminez again. I will be touring Europe in a month's time and look forward to the path ahead.
