Nick La Riviere is a talented singer and songwriter from Victoria, B.C. Nick La Riviere is known for being a trombonist, band leader, bassist, and also a conch shell player. Nick is one busy artist, playing shows, in the studio and is now about to release his second album ‘Another Time Around.

The album consists of eight full length tracks, all displaying how talented Nick La Riviere is when it comes to different musical instruments. I have taken some time to listen to Another Time Around and it was very enjoyable. the two tracks that caught my attention immediately were ‘Woohoo’ (track one) and ‘One Minute’ (track seven). Both of these songs are filled with steady rhythms and sound amazing with the added instruments such as a trombone mixed with guitar. Fun fact, ‘Woohoo’ was written on Nick’s ferry ride from Newcastle to Amsterdam on his latest tour.

Rating: 3/5

My names Lizzie also known as LizzieFizzie. I’m 23 years of age, residing in Ontario and about to start my second year in childhood education. When I’m not drowning in assignments or deadlines I love going to concerts or small intimate shows. My pass time is usually spent listening to music, with friends or my furbabies. I love pop/rock music but slowly getting into the country scene. Some of my favorite canadian artist consist of Hedley, Marianas Trench, and Halfway To Hollywood. I could honestly list then all but it’d be a long list.
