Medium Build is sometimes the moniker used by singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Nick Carpenter, and other times, the name of his band. He often sings mid tempo ballads with personal, soul-dissecting lyrics that can be quite candid. His tone tends to gets bleak when he turns his gaze back upon himself. Introspection and melancholy seem to go hand in hand in his songs, with proportional amount of pain projecting through his voice. There is usually a steady backbeat that anchors his melodies and gives his music a sense of forward motion, but does not necessarily lighten his disposition. His arrangements are typically well thought out and they add more texture to his music.
