Astral Harvest Music & Arts Festival

Nick Fast

I have spent my entire adolescent and adult life using my songwriting as a creative outlet. Since my teenage years in the Vancouver area to my present home in Kamloops, BC, the guitar has never been too far away. From the first time I touched one, I was creating my own music with it. It didn't take long to realize that writing songs and performing them was the artistic release that was needed to get through the day. Over time the songs have become more refined and soulful, while using fairly simple yet sometimes cryptic lyrics to convey the message. To me it's more about the feeling behind a song than the actual words within it. I believe good music can be felt in the soul and that is what I try to convey in my songs.
