The Melbourne Songwriter Returns..
Originally from Melbourne, Nick Di Gregorio moved to London in 2014 to become a full time working musician and since then has been honing his skills on the live circuit, taking his set to venues such as upstairs at Ronnie Scotts, The National Gallery and Metropolis Studios. Announcing himself in 2016 with his debut EP ‘Lover Birds’, a 6-track offering which provided a snapshot of a young, hungry musician making his way in London. Songs like ‘Lauren Brown’ and ‘Collisions in Love’ showcase his Jazz leanings and knack for writing acoustic pop gems which have drawn comparisons with John Mayer, Damien Rice and The Shins.
With his new single ‘Lesson Learnt’ he continues this his output of clever Jazz flavoured acoustic-pop and has dually dropped these playful visuals to accompany the track. The official music video tells a story of the trials and tribulations of finding modern love in the city. Wanting to break away from a performance base video Nick explains:
“The idea came out of not wanting to shoot another mimed video, I think it’s nicer when videos tell a story! I asked my actor friend Laura Hopwood (the main character) to help me flesh out the idea, I had a rough idea of the storyline and from there we got Ethan Roberts on board to film and director. I really loved collaborating with this team, all the actors did an amazing job and Ethan really brought it to life in the editing room!”
