In his current ‘second act’ as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, Nick Lowe has no equal. Starting with 1995’s The Impossible Bird through to 2011’s The Old Magic, Nick has turned out a fantastic string of albums, each one devised in his West London home, and recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy. Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live shows as “elegant and nearly devastating.”
