I love to frame things and I’m crazy about cropping. Here are some of my recently harvested crops.

 


The concept for The Stars video was something Nick talked about doing for long time and came to be after he found some vintage puppets while on holiday in Rye, UK. The Stars was the third single from Woodland Echoes and released as a limited edition clear vinyl 10" for Record Store Day 2018. #nickheyward #woodlandechoes #thestars #handpuppet #handpuppets #vintagepuppet #tampa #officialvideo #wholesome #wholesomeness #puppetry #puppets ...

On A Sunday. From #TimsTwitterListeningParty earlier this year: "Please excuse the name drop here, but Paul McCartney told me he really liked this song and the guitar on it. “Was that you?” I said yes and that moment I could have died and gone to heaven" And: “‘I love the brass on this song. Always have done. It takes me back to Air Studios Sunday morning recording sessions. Geoff parking his old Mercedes actually on the corner in Oxford Circus. There were lots of things you could do on a Sunday in 1983 and one of them was parking anywhere. And it was empty and peaceful. You could hear birdsong in Oxford Street on a Sunday.” #timstwitterlisteningparty #nickheyward #northofamiracle #onasunday #sunday #sundayvibes ...

Who? The second lyric video from Woodland Echoes we uploaded to YouTube today. I wrote the lyrics when I didn't know the answer to the question and the music when I did - it all happened through a process of doing and becoming. Ask and you shall receive... maybe not right away and sometimes it takes years. My fiancée and I used to live in a little cottage in the country near a pub called The Crooked Billet. Every Friday and Saturday night during the summer we’d hear gypsy jazz drifting over the fields. This is tipping my hat to that sound. I worked on it with my old friend and jazz fanatic, Phil Taylor, and he really pushed me as a musician and helped produce some of the best work on Woodland Echoes. I love his BVs here. We would usually spend most of the day with tea and cakes and talking about anything but music before we start work. This is how I create. Most of the recording time is setting up the atmosphere for the gushing to happen. #NickHeyward #WoodlandEchoes #NaturePop #LyricVideo #Who ...

Today's Woodland Echoes' 3rd anniversary and to celebrate we've re-opened the webshop at NickHeyward.com and uploaded two new lyric videos to YouTube. Here's a snippet of the first - Beautiful Morning. For me, this song is the gentle unfolding of the day and waking up in nature. #NickHeyward #WoodlandEchoes #NaturePop #LyricVideo #BeautifulMorning ...

Made it over the driveway. Negotiated the sprinkler system and fought off a wren, a lizard and a strimmer to get here. This is Elysian, also known as The Ten Wild Flowers. I’m going to stay here tonight. Anyway, thought I’d share this with you as I guess most of you enjoy observing adventure, I know I do 🐜💨 ...

Mow your shed light. Tag a bunch of opening obstacles. Tape what happens. A rumble of earthiness. Years of being involved. Yes is a good idea. No is a big difference. Togetherness. Olaf Himalayas and the morning marinade. Tides of open hearted people. Power update. Atoned tree for you and me. Oily leaves and the fragrant caribou. Making up a new river of circumstances beyond our control. Whatever the pump said was right. A bright and happy feeling beneath the ridiculous size of your hope. In other words, three cushions on a chair in the lounge 🪑 ...
