Destination Blues Listening Room with Nick Andrew Staver

Live Music

May 29, 2019

The Exchange


“It’s a heavy heavy world and it’s coming down on you.” Musically speaking. Nick Andrew Staver is trenching new roads to be paved with his sound, ripping out the traditional Blues seams and restitching them with his story.

Behind the steam of his 2017 independent release YOPE, lovingly titled after a childhood nickname, Nick Andrew Staver is and has been touring the country to help fill in the gaps for those in need of a Blues fix. And some of his own at the same time. YOPE unveils the story of a working-class musician and proficient songwriter who is able to disrupt the mainstream cliches and predictability found in today’s music. A member of only one band for nearly a decade before embarking solo, it’s quality over quantity that has lead Nick Andrew Staver to be the artist he is now. Using the road and stage as the teacher, Nick sketched the blueprint for his musical abilities and followed his gut feeling to the letter. Although there is a roof and four walls to call home in south central Pennsylvania, it’s the lined asphalt that Nick has become familiar with most since 2012. Performing all over the US and concentrating on the East Coast, Nick’s music has spread out to audiences of all colors of the collar.

As part of its mission to bring the arts to all communities throughout our region, The Exchange hosts the Destination Blues Listening Room in its storefront art gallery at 24 East Main Street in Bloomsburg on the last Wednesday of every month, from 7 to 9 p.m., as regional Blues and Americana musicians perform in our intimate space, up close and personal. We feature a range of acts – solo artists and small bands, acoustic and electric – in an atmosphere conducive to enjoying and experiencing the music: just a few dozen concertgoers, the musician(s), and the music. $5 donation at the door, BYOB permitted. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., music runs from 7:00 until 9:00.
