The first official announcement regarding Nick’s solo project, The Nick Hexum Quintet, was made today on! In addition to Nick, the Quintet will also feature Zack Hexum and three other (not yet known at this time) musicians. My Shadow Pages is slated for an October 1 release, but “Blame The Sky” is available to listen to online now!

In the article posted on Yahoo!, Nick said, “I wrote this song with my brother, Zack. We were initially throwing out lines to inspire each other with no particular theme in mind. As we went on, a thread came together. It’s about seizing the day. Follow your dreams and believe in yourself. And if you need a reason why — blame the sky!”

I can’t wait to hear the full album…congratulations, Nick!
