Long Story Short EP
Nicholas James Thomasma
Vocally driven acoustic folk, accompanied by violin and cello.
Long Story Short is an intimate portrait of lost love and rejection, the inevitable acceptance of that, and the eventual redemption of finding true love. It's only 5 songs and just over 20 minutes, but it's a long story. The album was recorded by Justin VanHaven and the arrangements are as sparse as possible. The songs are either piano or acoustic guitar with some violin by Clouds and cello by Russell Gorton. It took nearly 2 years to make this album. Why? Well, it's a long story.
"Singer-songwriter Nicholas James Thomasma is a Grand Rapids native and a Michigander to the core. He even has the Great Lakes tattooed on his arm and professes real love for the region in earthy, country-imbued songs drenched in honesty and authenticity. Thomasma also happens to be a supremely talented singer. . ." - John Sinkevics, The Grand Rapids Press
