Glad to be able to help in some small way. After all, you’ve been a very enjoyable part of the soundtrack to my life for many years now. Can’t wait for live music to resume...

Carrying off the Truffaut look well. I think you should wear a beret to cover the thinning thatch as penance for the duration of you 2021 tour. Cheers from Sheff.

Hey Nick. Could you send me the lyrics to Blood Song please. Could you start the sheet with 'To Dave' and then sign it at the bottom. A nice xmas pressie! Looking forward to hearing this when finished. Hope you're keeping well at the moment.

I love your music, I have your early CD’s 👏👏 I adore the story behind Phantastes (I need to get myself a copy too now !!) SO romantic !! I am glad to help in this small way to get you closer to finishing your project. I am sorry you’ve had to cancel your tour dates. I hope this makes up for it. Look forward to hearing you new songs 🙏🏻 Take care X

As one of my favourite artists, I will ALWAYS support Nick whenever and however I can. I've already donated for a signed CD etc but to also have Nick read the book for audio is just beyond wonderful. So excited for this album!!! X P.S. If you're tempted to donate and get yourself a copy just do it! You won't regret it. And while you're at it get hold of his back catalogue...it will sooth your soul!!!!!!! X
