Nick Annis finds the spoken word, either plain or set to music and accompanied by instruments, more alive than anything written. His way with words touches heart and conscience while addressing issues of fairness and everyday life. He is admired by folk fans for the storytelling talent that makes his performances so memorable in the style of brilliant songwriter/storytellers like Gamble Rogers, John McCutcheon, and Dave Carter. Drawing on his diverse background and Greek roots, Nick crafts “true” stories and timeless accounts of humanity.,
An award-winning songwriter, Nick was honored to have his spoken word piece, "In the Beginning," recorded by Chuck Brodsky on his CD "Tulips for Lunch". Nick's song "By My Silence", co-written with Ellen Bukstel, has been covered by Sonia (Splash), Sam Weiser (Sam I Am) and is being sung now by church choirs in six states.
