Nick Drake

'i saw it written, and i saw it say.'

It has been said time and time again that people never harness true recognition until they meet their deaths. That somehow bereavement serves to immortalize them as legend. Born from unlikely beginnings in Rangoon, Burma (well unless you consider the full impact of the British Empire on the modern world) British Folk musician Nick Drake seems to exemplify that truth behind posthumous fame. Perhaps it was the pace at which his career unfolded, producing three magnificent heart-wrenching albums of somber/ambient genius over the course of only three years. Regardless he’s now thankfully being seen for his contribution to not only the genre of Brit Folk, but for his all-embracing aesthetic gift to music.
