Love Songs for Angry Men

by Nick Hensley

"Hensley's first solo effort, Love Songs For Angry Men, is destined to be an indie classic. The lyrically driven, Americana album is similiar to the works of Ryan Adams with a shot of Celtic pain poured in the mix." Gray Laurent - Paste Online Magazine

Album Notes
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 2002. Hensley’s alias, stage name and alter ego, Love Songs For Angry Men, was born to get people curious, talking and through the doors. Now, eight years later, it’s is the title of his first solo effort and also 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 in his hometown of Saint Paul, MN. The majority of the songs on the new album had been played at shows for years and recorded live, but only acoustic (more than 30,000 of those live, acoustic, discs are currently circulating throughout the Midwest). However, the new full band, studio album has released through major distribution and is available at all major retailers and ITunes.

Nick Hensley’s Love Songs For Angry Men has maintained a full schedule since 2002, averaging more than 200 shows a year. He has shared the stage with several National acts including: The Why Store, Alex Ligertwood of Santana, Fastball, 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 Minnesota’s most popular Songwriter Showcases including MNaked and the
MN Songwriter Showcase which is held every Sunday in St. Paul.
