Nashville, TN-based pop-rock singer-songwriter Nick Gill has signed a label deal with Newark, NJ-based Rock Ridge Music. Gill's first release for Rock Ridge will be his forthcoming album, Waves Are Only Water, which is scheduled for digital release on October 30, 2012. Says Gill about the partnership with Rock Ridge Music: "I'm so incredibly excited about signing with Rock Ridge. I'm a huge fan of the artists on the roster, and I'm so thankful that my new record is in such great hands!"

Says Rock Ridge Music CEO Tom Derr about the new signing: "Nick brings his talent and dedicated work ethic to our roster, adds another great piece to our talent pool, and helps grow our reach overall, which in turn is helpful for every artist on our roster. We're proud to have him on our team."

Waves Are Only Water is Gill's fourth release (his first three came out while he was still in high school). Produced by Ed and Scott Cash in Franklin, TN, the album features seven tracks. Barely out of his teens, the young performer, who was born in Washington, DC and grew up in Fairhope, AL, has already toured the country, been featured in many newspapers and magazines, and received radio airplay, all while juggling high school and performing/touring.

Press has been very positive and supportive of his work thus far. Where Y'at in New Orleans praised his musical promise and comparing him to a young Jack Johnson, saying, "There's great raw emotion communicated through his tracks." The Mobile, AL Register dubbed his self-titled EP "a whale of a calling card." Muzikreviews.com praised his self-titled EP's lyrical maturity and his "warm and mature beyond-its-years' vocal ability." An early review of Waves Are Only Water from Life-is-Awesome.net placed Gill's music among luminaries in the singer-songwriter field: "Tracks like 'Risky Business' offer up a slower, darker groove, picking up the melancholic thread laid before him by artists like David Gray and Jonathan Rice, further highlighting his musical growth. His vocals are deep and buttery, rich with a confidence that betrays his age and his music stylings are more focused with his natural ability further developed. There are influences from the likes of modern male singer/songwriters like Josh Rouse, Josh Kelly, Matt Nathanson and earlier John Mayer."

Gill plans to tour this fall in support of Waves Are Only Water; tour dates will be announced soon. He will be performing at the annual Hotel Carolina singer-songwriter festival being held in Isle of Palms, SC, which is taking place September 20-22, 2012, at the Windjammer.
