Based in Warwick, NY, Wickham Falls is an alternative rock band composed of four passionate, young musicians. Singer/guitarist Brooke Nilson founded this band along with bassist Conor Larsen while they were still in high school. It wasn’t until after graduating and heading off to college when they teamed up with old friends Lilly Nicholson (drums) and Luke Nicholson (guitar) to form Wickham Falls. With influences such as The Strokes, Pixies, Badflower, and Peach Pit, you’ll hear calm and unique vocals, a strong backbeat and rhythm section, and killer guitar hooks that are bound to get stuck in the head of any listener.
The band quickly gained momentum after graduating high school. As regular performers at the Orange County Fair Speedway, they were offered multiple opening spots for well-known artists such as Manchester Orchestra, Lovelytheband, AJR, Everclear, Hoobastank, Wheatus, Living Colour, and Cheap Trick. As of August 2021, Wickham Falls finished recording a self-titled album, which is now released on all streaming platforms, with producer/engineer Paul Antonell (Shawn Mendes, Natalie Merchant, Jade Bird, Living Colour) and producer/engineer Shubham Mondal (Post Malone, Tom Morello, Clairo, Norah Jones, Jack DeJohnette).
