For Nick Shortt (Guitar,Vocals) song writing became a passion around the same time he picked up a guitar.
Moving from house to house, composing songs, Shortt has created honest and meaningful lyrics, leaving the listener to interpret his music, in their own personal way.
Having gotten a taste for the music scene, after playing several solo shows, Shortt decided it was time to expand his sound. Excellerater has cemented its lineup with the addition of Shawn Crozier (Bass, Backing Vocals), and Kyle Lawton (Drums, Backing Vocals).
This power trio hailing from Collingwood is continuing to gain momentum, playing local shows around Ontario. Playing notable venues such as, Horseshoe Tavern (Toronto), Jozo's (Blue Mountain), The Dard (Wasaga Beach) as well as major Ontario festivals like SummerAid (Wasaga Beach), KOI Fest (Kitchener), Otherfolk (Owen Sound), Barrie New Music Fest, Georgian Triangle Music Fest (Wasaga Beach).
In their short career, Excellerater has shared the stage with recording artists Ill Scarlett, USS, The Flatliners, and the Ascot Royals.
