Nick Kelly: The GESTATION Project – Whelan’s Upstairs, Dublin

9 gigs, 9 months, one precious new arrival…
January is the month for cutting back after all the festive excess and singer-songwriter Nick Kelly is no exception. After 4 months of indulging us with his genius collaborators including ex-Beautiful South Briana Corrigan, Anne Scott, Joe Chester, as part of his Gestation Project which takes place the last Wednesday of every month in Whelans, Nick Kelly is now set to strip all his songs back for a very special acoustic solo show. And its not just the music that will be cut back- tickets for the January Gestation show will be a slashed to a mere €5.

Four years after the release of his Choice Prize-nominated Running Dog, Nick Kelly has embarked on a novel approach to creating the follow-up. September 2009 Nick began the first of 9 monthly gigs in which he showcases, roadtests and experiments with a whole set of new songs in the intimate setting of Upstairs@Whelans on the last Wednesday of every month.

The last show in the GESTATION project – scheduled for May 26th, 2010 – will see the launch of a brand new Nick Kelly solo album, featuring songs written and honed over the previous 9 months, and recorded with the benefit of a unique level of participation from Nick’s own fanbase.
