Nick Huggins is a Melbourne musician and producer who loves to mess around with sounds, analogue or digital, accidental or intentional. He particularly enjoys writing to the moving image.
His credits include the Australian Music Prize nominated debut by Kid Sam, and much of the roster of Melbourne’s most exciting indie label, Two Bright Lakes. He was described by Mess and Noise’s Darren Levin as ‘one of the best pop arrangers working in Australia today.’
In November 2012 Nick Huggins was invited to perform the soundtrack live with a full band as part of Melbourne Music Weeks screening of I AM ELEVEN. A sold out audience in Melbourne’s state of the art ACMI cinema were treated to this very special screening and musical experience. One of the children from the film, Jamira now 14, performed as a guest vocalist on the closing credits song to rapturous applause.
