Nick Wilkinson and the Featured Players began as a joke. A serious joke, but they never planned to be a permanent band. In 2011, songwriter, Nick Wilkinson, was looking to play a Battle of the Bands with a full group for the first time in 4 years. Joined by bassist, Devin T. Simmons and drummer, Jeffrey Matheny, the group took Nick’s acoustic folk, 90′s flared songs, and turned them into so much more.
Now, Nick Wilkinson and the Featured Players, consists of Nick Wilkinson, Jeffrey Matheny, and Kevin McManus and has released their first 3-song EP entitled “Nothing For Now”. Their plan is to play shows rigorously and tour in 2013. A full length album is also in the works.
Nick Wilkinson and the Featured Players has supported bands such as Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown, The Missing, Burning Down Broadway, Tess Wiley and more bands to numerous to list.
