‘Lesson Learnt’ is acoustic pop at it’s best. Nick Di Gregorio’s voice has an unique way of drawing the listener in and starts the toe tapping. The music video complements the song and captures the viewer’s interest. I should mention that the meaning of the song is what it says. A ‘Lesson Learnt’!
Singer/songwriter Nick Di Gregorio continues his output of clever Jazz flavoured acoustic-pop and returns with these playful visuals to accompany his latest single ‘Lesson Learnt’. The official music video tells a story of the trials and tribulations of finding modern love in the city. Wanting to break away from a performance base video Nick explains:
“The idea came out of not wanting to shoot another mimed video, I think it’s nicer when videos tell a story! I asked my actor friend Laura Hopwood (the main character) to help me flesh out the idea, I had a rough idea of the storyline and from there we got Ethan Roberts on board to film and director. I really loved collaborating with this team, all the actors did an amazing job and Ethan really brought it to life in the editing room!”
Originally from Melbourne, Nick Di Gregorio announced himself in 2016 with the release of his debut EP ‘Lover Birds’. The 6-track offering provided a snapshot of life and love for a musician making his way in London. Songs like ‘Lauren Brown’ and ‘Collisions in Love’ showcase his Jazz leanings and knack for writing acoustic pop gems which have drawn comparisons with John Mayer, Damien Rice and The Shins. Tracks from the EP went on to garner support from online platforms such as Sir Chillicious, Fame Mag, UMA Music, Indiemono, Music-News and much more.
Since moving to London in 2014 Nick has been honing his skills on the live circuit, taking his set to venues such as upstairs at Ronnie Scotts, The National Gallery and an in-house showcase at Metropolis Studios. After studying Jazz Performance at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, the burgeoning guitarist cut his teeth as a performer on cruise ships which proved to be an invaluable training ground, particularly for his vocal and performance chops. Although it wasn’t long before he literally jumped ship to become a full time working musician in London.
