Nick Chandler talks new band and new material

Nick Chandler and Delivered were an official IBMA showcase artist and exhibitor this year, and he has been busy breaking in a new band to learn the material, and planning for a recording project in the near future. Nick, from Asheville, NC and a regular at IBMA, talks at length about how he finds and works a new song until it is right for him and the band.

Nick says it is all about the ride of the song to differentiate it from others on a release, or in a set.

Nick is also busy with a Toys for Tots benefit in October at the Feed & Seed in Fletcher, North Carolina. He said he kind of grew up in a poor family and remembers what it’s like, so he’s happy to donate his time so some kids can get some toys on Christmas morning.
