Franz Nicolay artist photo

Franz Nicolay was a member of Brooklyn rockers The Hold Steady until his departure at the end of 2009, and punk orchestra World/Inferno Friendship Society. In 2009, he released his solo debut Major General. He recorded Luck & Courage in Brooklyn over two weeks during spring 2010, with producer Jim Keller (Willie Nelson, Franz Ferdinand) and spent the past summer as a touring member of agit-punk band Against Me! Nicolay has been hailed as a charismatic "born performer", "a storyteller and entertainer in the cabaret and vaudevillian tradition". From the stoic pathos of ‘This Is Not A Pipe’ and the small-town grotesque of ‘My Criminal Uncle’ to the ferocious noir of ‘Have Mercy’ and the tender marriage ballad ‘The Last Words of Gene Autry’, Luck & Courage marks his arrival as an aphoristic and heart-wrenching songwriter to be reckoned with.
