About Nomads of the Nook
In a strange coincidence, three disciples of the Temple of Funk, born under respective bad signs, landed in the lazy-ass town of Englewood. As fellow reggae-ninjas, they felt they had to carry on the tradition of Irie schnitt in this sub-tropical tourist trap. Thus, Nomads of the Nook were born.
To categorize the Nomads is nearly impossible as they try to incorporate all of the styles that influence them. Originally, it was relatively simple-funky reggae all the way. But as time passed, a wider spectrum of musical interests came along with each individual member of the band. Heavy rock kept the music intense, progressive worked the brains, and the almighty jam is the portal into the minds of the musicians. With an established sound, the Nomads can now crank out songs daily if necessary.
The inspiration truly comes out of this beach town of Englewood. Animals, streets, and recreational activities inspire new tunes. Every sound that comes out of the band’s instruments is intended to reflect what the song is about. Each member lives in a different part of the town - making them Englewood familiars. Zac has the white-trash, deserted part of North Englewood, Tyler has the wealthy beach community of Cape Haze, and Brett has the signature East-side suburbs. The town manages to remain dig-able by the Nomads.
Nomads refers to the band's traveling musical interests. As nomads, they will always be moving. Nook refers to the town of Englewood. Not a city that gets the attention of the traveling folk, but accepted to the citizens as a functioning social establishment. The Nomads hope to bring life to Englewood in the form of pride in the area we live in.
