Nick Gonnering


After touring the country in 2016 for the centennial anniversary of the National parks, Nick Gonnering completed and recorded his first solo album “Finding My Niche” an edgy acoustic journal of his travels and reflections from the road. After the project was completed, he continued his travels along the East coast in search of a place where him and his wife could lay some roots.Shortly there after they stumbled upon the Asheville, NC area.

Over the last few years Nick has toured regionally and has been working on a new range of songs concerned with giving back to the amazing community he has found here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. His work focuses on his yogic journey, finding peace in troubling times and being truly and authentically you.

Drawing from such influences as The John Butler Trio, Trevor Hall, Michael Hedges and songwriters such as James Taylor, George Harrison and Bill withers, Nicks fuses a unique mix of 12 string acoustic folk with blues, rock and soul influences to back his powerful vocals and insightful lyrics.

“I want to share this inspiration i’ve found, I hope it helps” Nick Writes in his new song “Hope, it helps”
