Nico G – Facing The Hills

‘’In 2020, two years after the release of my second solo EP, it was time to think about what to do next. Another EP? A live recording? Or a new full length album, featuring a mix of old and new compositions? After playing some songs more than a hundred times a year they had changed, especially those from ‘Acoustic Guitar’ my first EP recorded in 2016. So I decided to take my favourite songs from the first two EPs and record new versions of them. The other half of the album is composed of brand new songs. My way to work has changed a bit as I’m not on the road anymore. Since settling in Scotland and finding my base, I’ve had more time to explore and just the one beautiful landscape to inspire me. And so Facing The Hills was born. The album’s title track came to me during those months of 2020 where we all had to rethink our lives, finding new ways to overcome challenges because when you’re stuck, or you think you are, the only way to keep going is to face it and get over it. In other words, Facing The Hills.’’
