The things I’m about to write, the thoughts I’m about to share, about the voice you’re about to hear are not usually out in the open.
Nick Slater speaks to young men about young men things and they’re usually behind locker room doors or in the back booth of the takeaway. You see, young men have a code and it’s better to deliver your message cautiously, slowly because you don’t want to give too much away to the wrong crowd. If things go pear shaped you need to know where the door is to get out and get on your way quickly.
Nick’s toxic charm mix is a vocal concoction of disarming your mother in law sweetness, bad boy street cred that could sell a show and shine car expo to a v8 veteran and slow cooked suggestions to a new girlfriend that she may regret the morning after.
Hand Nick a newly released drink. Ask him to talk straight with an awkward teenager.
Tell him he has a few minutes whispering money saving hints to the loved up couple in the coffee shop. He’s one of that crowd or the one who speaks to it.
