Franz Nicolay is a musician, and writer.
Brooklyn band The Hold Steady recorded their eighth album Open Door Policy in upstate New York in 2019. Rolling Stone calls it “yet more proof that Craig Finn is one of the most vivid songwriters in rock.” Band members Craig Finn and Franz Nicolay join for a Listening Party on the album’s release day.
In this episode, Kevin sits down with Franz Nicolay, revered multi-instrumentalist / composer / performer who you might know from bands like the World/Inferno Friendship Society, The Hold Steady, Guignol, Anti Social Music and much, much more. Hard at work on his next solo record Nicolay talks a little about the past, a little about life as a solo artist, and even a little about singing like Meatloaf. Tune in to this one kids, because when you’re talking Franz Nicolay, well that’s about as good as it gets! Support this show See for privacy and opt-out information.
