Acoustic Pop in the West Midlands

Most musicians tend to find the peak of their fame during their lifetime, but that was not so for Nick Drake. It is only now, almost forty years after he died, that he’s achieved the fame he deserved. So was he too far ahead of his time?

Although Nick Drake was born in Burma, owing to his father’s work, the family returned to Warwickshire when he was two years old. His mother’s love and talent for music led to Nick learning to play piano and guitar, developing the acoustic style which was to become his signature sound.

Drake’s music is often seen as being very subdued and dark, and these feelings were reflections of his personality, often being described as someone antisocial and distant. It is believed that he suffered from major depression, and Drake died at the age of 26 in 1974 from an overdose of the anti-depressant drug amitriptyline.

Although Nick Drake’s story is not a happy one, it is symbolic of the huge talent in the acoustic pop scene in the West Midlands. Today, there are a number of incredibly talented musicians available to hire through DG Music for your party or event, playing a wide variety of different musical styles to suit your particular tastes. Call us today on 01572 756386 and we’ll be more than happy to help.
