About Wickham Falls

     A long, long time ago in the year of 2016, three high school students decided to form a band. This band was known as JaCoB the Band. They started off with cover songs, but ended up writing their own originals. Soon enough, they were performing as often as they could at the Orange County Fair Speedway. All of a sudden, each of them graduated high school and went off to college. This led to the band having to disband and find new members, bringing us to the birth of Wickham Falls and all of it’s current members, including OG JaCoB the Band members Brooke and Conor. The two of them found a drummer, Lilly, because she was in a cover band with Brooke in high school. Soon, they all decided they needed another guitar player in order to get a fuller sound, so they asked Lilly’s brother, Luke. The four of them together have been working hard to create the unique sound that is Wickham Falls.

Wickham Falls is an indie/alternative rock band from New York. The members include Brooke Nilson, Conor Larsen, Lilly Nicholson, and Luke Nicholson. The name of the band doesn’t really have a meaning, and they cannot seem to come up with anything better.

Lilly

Lilly Nicholson is the band’s drummer. She holds everyone together. That’s what drummers do. Lilly plays a big role in collaborating with the band to create just the right form of a song. She knows just when to put in a fill. Outside of the band, she is currently working towards a bachelor’s degree in Geology at Stony Brook University. She also likes to spend time baking and with her dog.

Luke

Luke Nicholson is the newest member of the band and he plays guitar. He and Brooke switch back and forth for the leads on different songs. Adding him to the band really gave them more of a full sound, and he really knows how to go crazy with his effects board. Outside of the band, Luke studies at SUNY Empire. He also likes to watch movies and hang out with his dog.
