Hi, my name is Nick Cope and I write and perform songs for families. I have a massive hardcore fan base from all over the world aged 0 – 8 and much, much older!
I perform all over the county at theatres and art and literary festivals and I have had a sell out run at the 2016 Edinburgh fringe.
I will be out and about in 2017 promoting my new album “A round of applause for the dinosaurs” So if you have any family themed events or festivals please get in touch.
Please have a look at www.nickcope.co.uk to see some videos and to hear some songs.
Here is the song ‘the baby’s done a poo’…
I hope to hear from you soon,
Very best wishes,
“Funny, profound, educational, our children have talked about everything from gravity to grieving thanks to Nick Cope’s songs. Our family’s favourite singer /songwriter”

“A round of applause for the dinosaurs” is Nick Cope’s 5th collection of original songs for families and children. Former Candyskins front man Nick has been writing and performing his family songs for over 8 years and has built up an army of devoted fans from all over the world. This new collection of 11 songs features many local friends and musicians notably Andy Bell from Ride/Oasis on guitar .The songs focus on a variety of subjects but looking after our planet and each other is at the core of many of them. There are heart-warming stories of lonely wolf children and amazing tales of Aliens and Dinosaurs and not forgetting Joe and his Mum who really can’t decide on the best way to spend the day!! After a sell-out run at this year’s Edinburgh fringe it has been a busy old year!!
“The Nick Cope show” a 25 minute visual spectacular hosted by a cartoon Nick Cope!! Featuring songs from his new CD and a few classics of old. There are amazing dancing Lizards, Pirates, Ukulele playing Dinosaurs and Baby poo! all animated by Nick and his son Burt. Nick and Burt’s videos have had thousands and thousands of YouTube hits and this new collection is the best yet!!! This first volume is sure to catch on and be as popular as Nick’s CD’s and promises to be the first of many. Only available on DVD and iTunes.”
