Pilot Is A Happy Man Now He's Flying Solo

Who: Nick Everitt, Liesl Karlsson
Where: QWB - Queens Wharf Brewery
When: Thursday March 9, 2006

NEW talent will be in the spotlight at The Brewery tomorrow night when emerging Central Coast- based singer-songwriters Nick Everitt and Liesl Karlsson perform.

Everitt, who counts Cat Stevens, James Taylor and The Platters among his influences, first played classical guitar at age six.

He joined covers band Catch's Pilot in 2001 and while it was an ideal way to experience the joy of performing live, it failed to fulfil his desire to create music.

``It was but it wasn't satisfying me the way I knew music should,'' Everitt said.

``Playing with the band gave me enough confidence to step up by myself and try something new.'' So Everitt decided a solo career was more his style and began penning his own material.

His roots style has drawn comparison to Ben Harper, Jack Johnson and Xavier Rudd and he has released an EP titled Silent Ships. Everitt will be joined at The Brewery by Karlsson, who has released one EP and has been likened to Jewel, Tori Amos and PJ Harvey
