Ken Nicol is a gui­tarist, singer, song­writer and pro­ducer from Pre­ston, in Eng­land. His music cov­ers the spec­trum from blues to rock, and effort­lessly takes in folk, jazz, rag­time, bal­lads and more along the way.

LISTEN TO KEN

Ken was a mem­ber of the leg­endary Albion Band from 1997 until Sep­tem­ber 2001 when he left in order to spend more time on other projects. In Decem­ber 2002, he suc­cess­fully joined forces withSteel­eye Span, work­ing with the band for eight years, most recently on their 2009 40th Anniver­sary Tour, vis­it­ing the USA and Aus­tralia. Dur­ing his time with Steel­eye he recorded four albums with the band: ‘They Called Her Baby­lon’, ‘Win­ter’, ‘Bloody Men’ and ‘Cogs, Wheels and Lovers’. Ken left the band in 2010.

As well as mak­ing and pro­duc­ing music, Ken has also worked with gui­tar mak­ers Fylde gui­tars to develop the Ken Nicol Sig­na­ture gui­tar. Beau­ti­fully con­structed from cedar and rose­wood, its incred­i­ble sound led to Acoustic Mag­a­zine giv­ing this gui­tar an unprece­dented 99% rating.
