Nick has over 9,500 fans on his MySpace page. Nick’s European Management Agency, Point2Point Management is currently negotiating a Major Label deal in Europe.
Nick has been writing, performing, doing session work and producing for many years. His musical journey began in Huntington, West Virginia where he played his first shows at the age of 12. After attending college at West Virginia University, Nick moved to Chicago where he attended the Chicago Conservatory of Music where he studied guitar and keyboards. His next stop was Nashville where he wrote, recorded and performed for several years. Eventually Nick began to feel musically confined with the “Nashville” sound and was compelled to create his own new sound. He decided to move New York City where he could blend his country roots with R&B, blues and rock.
Nick met Tomas Doncker at a show in New Year City and they soon began to write together. Nick found his sound. Tomas is a guitar guru and has been a major player in New York since the 1980’s. Tomas’ background in the blues, funk and R&B introduced new and unexpected rhythms and together with Nick they wrote songs with a fresh yet familiar sound. Nick and Tomas co-produced Nick’s new “Lonesome Time” EP.
Nick has worked with many renowned musicians including Nashville super studio stars: Bruce Watkins, Hoot Hester, John Willis, Mike Severs, Sonny Garrish, Hal Rugg, Ronnie Hughes, Rodger Morris, Jerry Kroon, Dennis Wilson, Susan Jacks and Eddie Burton. Nick’s “Lonesome Time” EP was recorded with Tomas Doncker, Booker King and RJ Rabin.
Nick’s “Lonesome Time” is receiving airplay on both FM radio and internet radio. His live shows attract a large and loyal following in many New York City venues and he his planning his first tour.
