Offshore Projects is the first time Nicholls has felt comfortable putting his heart and soul into music completely. After taking a break to travel in 2018, he returned to Sydney and recorded 5 songs to tape with Simon Berkelman at Golden Retriever Studios, Marrickville. This is the Offshore Projects debut self-titled EP out Aug 23, 2019 through Viscera Arts.
That sense of grounded intimacy really shines through not just in the lyrics, but the style of guitar-work and in the general vibe of the songs too. The stories speak to life’s small wins and brushing off the anxieties that plague us daily.
“These are the first songs I wrote after moving out of my parents’ home. That’s when the tone of my song writing changed dramatically, everything sounded fun and breezy again. A feeling that I hadn't captured or felt since writing songs as a kid.” – Jonas Nicholls
