Nic Meredith
Nic Meredith & the Shed Band
Nic Meredith is a Cygnet guitarist and singer-songwriter, who is instrumental in the musical tuition of many young performers in the Cygnet area. Nic grew up around London, writing and playing since he was 17, and arriving in Tassie in the late 80's. A onetime campaigner on 3rd world, peace and environment issues, Nic's passion for a more humane world underscores much of his songwriting. His music ranges across genre from Rn'B and Reggae to Ballad and Satirical to Bluegrass and beyond; it is characterised by strong rhythm, melody and in his recorded works, sumptuous harmonies. The lyrics are personal, intelligent, emotive and honest. A dynamic and passionate performer, Nic is a must-see when he's playing live.

Nic Meredith has been playing guitar and writing songs for over twenty years, spending his teens and early twenties playing in various incarnations of bands in around London and the South of France.He moved to Tasmania, Australia in the late 1980's.
At that time, music took somewhat of a backseat, as Nic became involved in third world and environmental issues, passionately campaigning on 3rd world debt in particular and social justice generally.
When music inevitably reasserted itself in the early 90's, his passion for a more humane world underscored much of his songwriting, and is heavily reflected in his lyrics, without preaching.
Nic's music ranges across genre from Rn'B to Reggae to Ballad to Bluegrass and beyond, and is characterised by strong rhythmic foundations, melody and harmonies.The lyrics are intelligent, emotive and honest as he writes essentially from the personal to convey the universal.To date, Nic has written around 200 compositions and more are always in the works.(*Click on the links to hear tracks from this genre)
Nic listens to anything really as long as it comes from the heart.
Growing up in the sixties and seventies in England meant heavy exposure to the great bands of the times; the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who, moving on to Punk (when Nic had ripped t-shirts and dyed hair, and soaked up the atmosphere and underlying philosophy of DIY music).
Nic spent the winter months of 1994 recording his first album 'Soulbeat' in the back room of the family home at the time in Warwick St., Hobart.It was recorded on a Tascam 246 4-track and featured 11 original tracks.Nic played all instruments and programmed the drum machine, (with the exception of Michael Vuister's lead guitar on 'Miss Her').
Following moving to 'the bush' and the glorious Huon Valley, Nic began setting up his own studio.
In the course of learning the ropes of recording digitally, initially on PC with Cubase VST, Nic had a large number of original tracks kicking around on the hard drive and it was decided to put out a 'quickie' cassette with a selection of a dozen tracks, which also included kids' songs commissioned for a local production of Dr. Seuss' 'The Lorax'.
On upgrading his recording gear and increasing the size of his hard drive, Nic moved aross to Mac and Pro Tools.
His third album and first CD, 'Lost in the Rhythm' was released at the end of 2001 and has been very well received by critics (see 'Reviews') both at home and abroad.
