“Emily” by Nick Urb

Singer-songwriter, Nick Urb, released Until the End of Days via Independent Ear Records on February 26, 2016. For this batch of songs, Urb tinkered with odd tuning while exploring both the happiness and hardships of his young adult life. He recorded Until the End of Days in Hamilton, Ontario at Catherine North Studios.

Urb was born and raised just outside Detroit in Clawson, Michigan. He occupied his time playing in bands around Michigan for over 8 years, finally going solo and finding his way up the East Coast and as far South as Austin, Texas. He played churches, house shows and small theaters throughout his early twenties, an experience he refers to as ā€œreflective and therapeutic.ā€

Released in 2012, his first album, We Are Able, received over 7 Million streams on Spotify and earned him a session on Daytrotter. It was a watershed moment for the songwriter and fit well with the timely emergence of mellow folk pop troubadoursā€™ such as City and Colour, Noah Gundersen and Ed Sheeren.
