NICK HENSLEY & The Love Songs For Angry Men + Carriage House $7
Friday, January 21, 2022 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
& The Love Songs For Angry Men,
The Acoustic Solo, Duo, Trio & occasional
Full Band (with the terrible name)
From Saint Paul, Minnesota
(The Best City in the Twin Cities!)
Nick Hensley is the former lead singer and co creator of The District, a regional soul & rock act from the upper Midwest, co based out of St. Paul, MN and Chicago, IL.
Hensley created Love Songs For Angry Men shortly after The District called it quits in 2002.
Hensley’s alias, stage name and alter ego,
Love Songs For Angry Men, originated as a bad joke… similar to other shorter lived band names like Amish Puppy Mill and Billy’s Little Secret. Unfortunately, for Nick and his band members, now papproaching 20 years later…
THE NAME JUST WON’T GO AWAY!
Hensley’s 3 STUDIO ALBUMS were released
(in 2009, 2013 & 2019) to sold out crowds in Chicago, Saint Paul and MPLS.
The albums are currently available at all major retailers, live shows and everywhere on the web. All three records have received several rave reviews from different media outlets including a 4 star review from Paste Magazine and AltCountry.com and a best of 2010 local selection in the City Pages.
The new record is in the can and due to be released in Spring of 2022.
Nick Hensley has maintained a full schedule since 1999 playing more than 200 shows a year throughout the US and overseas.
He has shared the stage with several National acts including: The Why Store, Alex Ligertwood of Santana, Fastball, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, The Gear Daddies, The Samples, Low, Semisonic, Trampled By Turtles, The Wallflowers, Soul Asylum, Colin Hay
and many more.
Hensley is also a booking agent and an avid supporter of local MN music. In turn, he has created some of Minnesota’s most popular Songwriter Showcases including: MNaked and the MN Songwriter Showcase, which is held every Sunday at Plums in St. Paul and every Wed at The Aster Cafe in NE MPLS.
