SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Acoustic musician Nick Motil will perform at Java House, 211 1/2 Washington St., at 10 p.m. today.

After more than 100,000 miles of touring, Motil is an experienced performer and storyteller. One of his favorite aspects of his career is being able to express himself through his lyrics. He likes to spread the message of love and life to as many people he can through his travels to campuses across the country.

Another of his favorite aspects is performing at venues he has never been to before and experiencing new people who support to his music. Motil is one of the most requested and booked singer/songwriters in the college market.

His biggest influences to his music are Paul Simon and David Gray. He works to create an original sound using alternate tunings and unusual fingerings for his folk rock and indie music; he tries to not sound like the acoustic sound that everyone has heard over and over again. Motil composes most of his songs by guitar.
