MUSIC+ART THAT IS INSPIRING ME AT THE MOMENT.
Nick Jaina has painted faces at Mardi Gras in New Orleans, hung posters in Greenwich Village, toured all of Canada, has been rescued on a farm outside Indianapolis, has been stuck in the El Paso Greyhound station, propositioned while hitch hiking the hill country of Texas, and has been broke in San Francisco. He has written many songs and plays them on the piano, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, accordion, organ or what-have-you. He has played drums with the Be Good Tanyas, synthesizers in the Menomena side project Lackthereof, produced the Kitchen Syncopators, played lead guitar in Myshkin's Ruby Warblers, played in an experimental electronic band at the opening of a Dollar Tree, played trumpet with the Maybe Happening, held the hand of the devil and shot God out of the sky. His songs are rich with faith and despair.
