Nick Barker "Exoskeleton" Album Launch @ Shotkickers
To mark the release of his 10th album, “Exoskeleton’’, Nick Barker and his band will play one show at Melbourne’s Shotkickers. Drawing on his 30 year solo career, this will be one not to miss for rusted-on Barker fans or, for that matter, any music fan. With special guests, Sean McMahon and the Owls. ONE SHOW ONLY!
Nick Barker is one of Australia’s most-loved artists and one of our finest songwriters, having written songs with Paul Kelly, Jimmy Barnes, Mick Thomas, Tim Rogers and Felicity Urquhart.
Exoskeleton – which comes 35 years after Barker’s first single with the Reptiles – is his first solo album in 14 years, following two albums with The Heartache State. It’s a collection of songs about people who have hard outer layers but are soft inside, love and loss, death and family, and scars that never heal.
Yep, you need a tough shell to survive in this business. But not only has Nick Barker survived, he’s delivered one of the finest albums of his career.
