For almost 20 years, Dayton, Ohio-based guitarist/songwriter Nick Kizirnis has explored songs and styles ranging from Americana to pop, and from rock’n’roll to surf and experimental. He has also worked with Tobin Sprout (Guided by Voices) and The Breeders.
Since releasing his 10th album, The Distance, Kizirnis has seen his music shared across U.S. and Europe, and has now begun releasing a series of singles reimagining his diverse song-writing style. Kizirnis and co-producer Patrick Himes decided to “re-imagine” “Way to Me” – a song that originally appeared on Kizirnis’ most recent album The Distance – after Kizirnis worked out solo arrangements of those lush break-up songs using loops and ambient guitars. The temptation to see what they could create with a fresh perspective was too great to resist. The outcome is fantastic as this track has become more addictive than ever!
“We ended up with a new song that still conveyed the same feelings of finding your way back to the ones you love, but with a very different vibe.”— Nick Kizirnis (on the new version of “Way to Me”)
The new “Way To Me” single is available on a limited edition 7″ lathe cut by Robyn Raymond who owns Red Spade Records in Canada (and co-founded the non-profit Women in Vinyl in the US). She is the only woman in CA cutting records! You can currently find the 7″ at Nick’s Bandcamp page linked below. If you are close to Dayton, Ohio tomorrow night you can also catch a release party for the single at the Yellow Cab Tavern. All of Nick’s live dates are below.
