Shane Nicholson - Secondhand Man

Shane Nicholson - Secondhand Man
A little distance can be a good thing for any songwriter, physically or emotionally. But Shane Nicholson found some distance and it has been good for him. You can hear that in Hell Breaks Loose, the sixth solo album from the singer-songwriter, songs written over several years and during a period of personal change.

Hell Breaks Loose is Nicholson’s first recording of original material since the breakdown of his marriage to Kasey Chambers, with whom he recorded two ARIA Award-winning alt-country duet albums, Rattlin’ Bones (2008) and Wreck & Ruin (2012).

Several songs address his new circumstances directly, including the ballad Single Fathers and the honesty of Secondhand Man. Others range across the decline of a once-great city (Irons and Chains, about Detroit), living with depression (Weight of the World), to learning to choose which battles are worth the fight (Bury My Guns).

Nicholson has established himself as one of the country’s most in-demand record producers.
Since his career began he has explored everything from folk to country, bluegrass and rock, picking up 8 Golden Guitars, 2 APRA awards and 2 ARIA Awards along the way.

About this track...

“Secondhand Man” is the first single from Hell Breaks Loose and is just the first sublime taste of what’s to come. The track signifies starting over for Nicholson and is riddled with the sheer honesty that Nicholson is known for.
