Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

William Nowik

Notes from the Underground

2004-03-25

No overnight sensation here - Mr. Nowik appears to have spent a lifetime seasoning himself toward artistry. In his journey, he’s traveled the world, established himself as a journalist, studied philosophy, written a novel and become something of an underground musical favorite in Southeast Asia.

“Notes…” continues down that path, capturing the wizened tones, hushed delivery, no-nonsense humanist values and eclectic musical variety that Bruce Cockburn brings to his work.

In essence, William Nowik honestly has the all the makings of a core WYCE artist - showing maturity, talent, a love for words and, bubbling just beneath the surface, a dark side.

Many of his writings are available on the website below.
