From slick hot-rod Rockabilly to crooning honky-tonk, Nicholas Campbell is the real deal. Growing up in Peterborough Ontario, Nicholas was surrounded by sounds of the past from Faron Young to Brian Setzer, picking up a guitar at 10 years old and gigging at 11 Nicholas has made his mark in southern Ontario's music scene. He released his debut album "Livin' and Other Western Ideas" in February 2021 backed by his band The Two Meter Cheaters. "Livin' and Other Western Ideas" is just the right amount of Rockabilly, Western Swing and classic Honky Tonk music for one record to have, with the debut single "Coming Home To You" having the most recognition, "Livin and Other Western Ideas" has had radio play from Kamloops B.C Canada to Spain and Italy. Since the release of his first album, Nicholas has been on tour all over Ontario and Quebec headlining as well as playing guitar for other acts on stages such as The Horseshoe Tavern, Red Hot & Blue Rockabilly Weekend and Kingsville Folk Festival among others.
