#TOTD of March 4th: Long Way Home by Nick Santino & The Northern Wind
For fans of: Ben Howard, John Mayer, The Maine
Most people know of Nick Santino through is earlier project A Rocket to the Moon but as of last year, Nick as been playing music under a new name: Nick Santino & The Northern Wind.
Though the title is fairly new, the musician released 2 EPs last year – one in July and the other in October. Both releases are more alternative rock and country influenced than any of Nick’s earlier work and while normally I don’t like country, Nick’s approach is something a little different. His voice has a bit more kick to it than it did in the past, and it’s far from the cliche twangy country voices plaguing the radio today.
Most recently, Nick has opened up for The Maine on their acoustic tour titled ‘An Evening with The Maine.’ “Long Way Home” is a song that the he has performed for audiences on the tour, which you can see below:
