Gibby Nik may very well be the quintessential west coast roots rock hero. His signature down-home style is honest, vulnerable, elegantly crafted, and served over a lush bed of deep grooves.
Born and raised in the picturesque coastal town of Campbell River, British Columbia, Nik’s music is heavily inspired by the ocean. At the age of twenty, he picked up a guitar and never looked back. Influenced by the likes of John Mayer, Amos Lee, and Jack Johnson, his easygoing vibes are recognizable, but distinctly original, too.
“I write songs from the heart in hopes of reaching common ground with good people,” says Nik. “I want to make people dance. I want to make people question their ways.
His debut EP, ‘ Dog Daze,’ showcases Nik as an old soul: wise and gentle. He can get in your face as well, however, creating a superb dichotomy of emotion throughout his tunes. “I’ m proud of what music has done for me and I’ m proud to be an artist in today’ s world,” Nik says.
