About

Nick Ailes

Folk singer/songwriter/a dim light in dark places, but it's a light nonetheless

Nick Ailes is a Folk Singer with deep roots that spread from the prairies of the Midwest, to the mountains of California. He plays a blend of Folk/Americana. Nick writes songs about his life experience, and places/events that lend themselves to great stories.

Nick wrote, recorded, and produced his first solo album  "Hearts & Wire" In 2018. A work dedicated to the memory of his father. He's now released three singles, and the full 10 song LP was released June 2019.

The album is laced with beautiful vocal harmonies, haunting pedal steel solos, and songs that sound as though they could easily be from an older time, or this one.
