Up the Hill (2017)

Focussing his music in theatre, where as an actor-musician he has written and recorded largely for children's shows and projects such as his musical play, James Prosper Goody: Visions of an Old Campaigner, Up the Hill is Nick's first album recorded, as it were, just as himself. It has a largely fun tone as well as something of a whimsical slant. It ranges from folk-style songs, through light swing numbers with echoes of the 1920s-30s to gentle satire and music hall. It includes two songs inspired by figures from Greek mythology, one being Charon and the other, lending the title of the album, Sisyphus.

All songs written and performed by Nick Murray Brown.

Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Accordion, Mouth organ, Drums, Percussion & Synth.

Total run time: 74 mins.
