Nicholas Costello is a solo artist based in Melbourne. He has been writing songs for almost 10 years. Described as having a natural flair for crafting melodies and writing lyrics, his songs display a formidable emotional and intellectual depth. An independent artist, whose songs tend to be borne out of personal experience, and are introspective in nature; but are nonetheless stylistically and sonically diverse and nuanced.
Costello is deeply influenced by the idols of his youth – REM, Mazzy Star, Nick Drake, Mark Kozelek and Jeff Buckley to name a few. But also draws on more contemporary musicians such as Phosphorescent, Beach House, Father John Misty and Hosier. All these influence culminate to produce what is a highly stylised, dreamy folk-rock atmosphere coupled with emotional intensity in his lyricism.
