For his recent release "Wool," Oregon songwriter and producer Nick Jaina wrote songs using a piano once owned by Elliott Smith and an old relic he found while touring in Finland last year. Perhaps those elements played part in the inspiration for the darkly nuanced Americana folk-pop he created. His melodic songwriting is bolstered with playful string and wind instrumentation courtesy of his Portland friends, a handful of whom join him on tour.
