About Nick Hensley Presents: Love Songs For Angry Men
Nick Hensley is the former lead singer and co writer of The District, a regional act from the upper Midwest, based out of St. Paul, MN.
He created Love Songs For Angry Men shortly after The District called it quits in 2003. Hensley’s alias, stage name and alter ego,
Love Songs For Angry Men, was simply born to get people curious, talking and through the doors. Now, seven years later,
it’s is the title of his first solo effort and still used as a general band name.
The full band, studio album was released on Valentine's Day, Saturday, February 14th 2009 to a sold out crowd at the Tiffany Lounge in Saint Paul, MN.
Most of the songs on the new album had been played at shows for years and recorded live, but only as an acoustic duo (more than 25,000 live, acoustic,
double discs are circulating throughout the Midwest). However, the new full band studio album has been released through major distribution and will be
backed by several short Midwest tours in 2010.
Nick Hensley’s Love Songs For Angry Men has maintained a full schedule since 2003, averaging more than 200 shows a year. He has shared the stage with several National acts including: The Why Store, Wishbone Ash, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, The Gear Daddies, The Samples, and countless others.
Hensley, who is also a booking agent, is an avid supporter of local, original MN music. In turn, he has created some of the most popular Songwriter Showcases including the MNaked Showcase and the MN Songwriter Showcase which is held every Sunday in St. Paul.
