You may have read some of the fantastic MB20 articles Nick Rainmaker’s written over the past several months here on Matchbox Twenty Plus. I’m a big fan especially of his crackin’ album reviews, and judging by the popularity of the articles on the site, i’m not alone in that. But what you might not know is that when Nick’s not writing articles, he’s a keen and very talented song writer and musician.

Nick was kind enough to send me some of his music, which i’m sure he won’t mind me sharing with you, i’m no musician, but these tracks sound like the beginning of a songwriters journey to some amazing places.

All you need to know, is that if Nick had a Wikipedia page, under Personal Life if would say, he splits his time between songwriting and 1996.
