Nick Duer is a lover of music as the expression of life. The good, the bad, the painful, and beautiful thing that is life. Love, heartache, success, and failure all have a place in his life and lyrics. Raised in a family that loved music he found himself with no natural talent. Then he became acquainted with the English language, and the words became as important as the music. For a time he forgot his love of both, and let things like money, career, women, drugs interfere with his first love. The love of music, and the love of capturing the beauty, both joyful, and painful of life in words. Now it is his sole reason for continuing to wake up each morning to a world he questions, and sometimes despises.
