Description

Lapointe, Nick : Gardens in the Fall on CD

Every spare minute he had, Nick would spend playing his guitar. Backs of receipts, napkins, and paper plates quickly became the next song lyric notepad. I spotted him in his own little world under a shady tree one day in rural Iowa, and I came close enough to listen but far enough to remain unseen. He played some oldies - Beatles, Clapton, and Hendrix. Then he played some songs that I could tell were his current inspirations - Dave Matthews, Third Day, and U2. Then he played a few that I couldn't put a finger on - the groove was familiar but the lyrics were fresh. I later found out those songs were Nick's originals. At one of Nick's shows on 'The Loop' (St. Louis) this year, I overheard a listener say to his date 'That guy sounds like a young Dylan.' Whatever the comparison may be, Nick has taken threads of some great classic sounds - American Roots, classic gospel, and rock - and woven a fabric all his own. Nick is a man on Mission. He sees the possibility, the dream, the vision of how music can truly change the world. He wants to share a message of redemption and truth through the universal language of music. His lyrics are poetic, even romantic - and carry a tone of revolution and vision. His song topics are vast - from the jealous Lover God, to an apocalyptic scene in Vegas, to a lonely military wife's prayers. My personal favorites are 'Back to Right' - a humble love song - and 'Your Hero' - just plain straight ahead acoustic rock. Please take a listen. You'll be intrigued. You'll be challenged. You'll tap your toe and break a smile at how he 'got there' in a song.
