Focussing his music in theatre, where as an actor-musician he has written and recorded songs for shows, Up the Hill is Nick’s first album recorded, as it were, just as himself. It has a largely fun tone as well as something of a whimsical slant. It ranges from folk-style songs, through light swing numbers with echoes of the 1920s-30s to gentle satire and music hall. It includes two songs inspired by figures from Greek mythology, one being Charon and the other, lending the title of the album, Sisyphus.
