About
My name is Nigel Longfellow of Heartland music and I have been writing poetry and lyrics for many years. I grew up listening to Gospel and Country music and fell in love with the American country and western genre. My writing is both unique and simple and heavily influenced by great songwriters such as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits and Shane MacGowan of the Pogues. Although my writing does feel very 'Americana/country' in style I am certain that my words and lyrics could be adapted for various musical genres and styles. Having been placed runner up (in a grand final) and semi finalist in an international songwriting competition 3 years ago with a beautiful and tender ballad entitled 'For the Last Time', I feel that I am now quite possibly writing some of the most poetic, passionate and heartfelt lyrics i have ever written
