Hillside Summer Festival 2018
July 13 - 15
Far from your average folk singer and guitarist, Toronto born, Guelph residing Nick Zubeck incorporates post-jazz pop sounds and elements of art rock into his eclectic style of songwriting. Heavy on beautiful arrangements, instrumental passages, and thoughtful lyrics, his music is at once genre-defying and familiar. Stepping out from his busy role as a sideman with varied groups like Sun Kil Moon, Great Lake Swimmers, Polmo Polpo, Barzin, Royal Wood and Roxanne Potvin, Nick will perform with a trio comprised of Guelph heavyweights Thomas Hammerton and AJ Johnson. Nick has performed all over the world, and has shared the stage with Will Oldham, Sonic Youth and other musical heroes. Nick works out of his Guelph studio, Arthur North, and has recorded and released five full length albums under his own name. He is currently working on the next one with friend and producer Sandro Perri.
