For decades Rob Nicklas has played with many duos, trios and bands. He has performed across the UK and overseas. He has played in folk groups, been the caller in a ceilidh band, lead singer in a five piece rock band and been a guitar player in a nationally renowned tribute band. Now he is concentrating on a solo career singing his own well crafted, melodic tunes with poignant lyrics and recording an album with a Grammy award-winning producer.
The world would be awful if we spent our time laughing or crying constantly. Is that why we find it difficult to show raw emotion when our lives are in turmoil? There is fear of losing control and that overwhelming bully – what other people think. Perhaps we evolved to not break down to survive? Perhaps we cannot find the words? Whatever the reasons most find it easier to display emotion to a stranger than to a friend. With loss we find a safe place internally or externally and bottle it up or cry alone. We temper joy, why? Who doesn’t feel better after a good cry? The songs Rob Nicklas writes are full of emotion, his lyrics convey the thoughts many find it hard to express. Rob admits he finds it almost impossible to talk about his emotions. “Writing songs about how I feel is therapy, there are mind places that are hard to visit both happy and joyful that find release in music and lyrics.” A Rob Nicklas gig is great fun, sprinkled with poignant lyrics. He is a superb entertainer with beautiful songs. Laugh or cry, he is always enjoyable, you will probably do both.
