Nick Eng: Pure pop confection from Reno

Nick Eng | Kellie Sasso

Dubbed the Paul McCartney of Reno, Nick Eng is a singer-songwriter whose work is the epitome of jangling, shimmery pop confection. His musical heart is stitched on his sleeve for better or for worse lyrically teetering between emotionally earnest to the cynical, biting expressions of a young man wounded by the world.

As a performer, he’s delivered his witty, nose-to-the-grindstone attitude from summer festivalsand historic theaters to rowdy hipster bars and smoke-filled cabarets up the West Coast. Eng performs on June 7 and 8 at 8:30 p.m. at Bar of America in Truckee. | nickengmusic.com
