Graham Nash has seen rock history unfold at some of its seminal moments– from the launch of the British Invasion to the birth of the Laurel Canyon movement a year later. An extraordinary Grammy Award winning renaissance artist – and self-described “simple man”– Nash was inducted twice into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, for his work with CSN and his work as a solo artist.

Nash’s remarkable body of work began with his contributions to the Hollies opus from 1964 to ’68, including Stop Stop Stop, and On A Carousel, among others.

The classic union of Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) yielded songs that are lightning rods embedded in our DNA, starting with Nash’s Marrakesh Express, Pre-Road Downs and Lady of the Island, from the first Crosby, Stills & Nash LP, and his iconic Teach Your Children and Our House from CSNY’s Déjà Vu.

Nash’s career as a solo artist took flight in 1971, with the release of his solo debut Songs For Beginners which included Chicago/We Can Change the World and Military Madness, the album’s two chronicles of society’s frayed edges in the Vietnam-era and three compositions that reflect back on the storied breakup of Nash and Joni Mitchell, Better Days, I Used To Be A King (which recalibrates the Hollies’ King Midas In Reverse), and Simple Man. Wild Tales followed in 1974 (with Prison Song, Oh! Camil, and You’ll Never Be the Same).

The most resilient, long-lived and productive partnership to emerge from the CSNY camp was launched (before Nash’s Wild Tales) with the eponymously titled Graham Nash/David Crosby (1972), bookended by Nash’s Southbound Train as the opening track and Immigration Man as the closer. Nash also contributed the hits Just A Song Before I Go to CSN (1977) and Wasted on the Way, to Daylight Again (1982).

Nash’s recent touring includes 2023 sold out tours in the US and the UK. Tickets from September 14 via davidrovwilliams.com.
