"Rising Duo Nigel and Evan Release Their Debut Single"

If there is one thing that the rising duo Nigel and Evan are good at, it is making an explosive debut single that is bound to attract young music fans from all over the world. The two music artists introduced their debut single In My Head just recently, and it is now available on different streaming platforms such as YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music, among others. With fun, excitement, and positivity as the main themes of their song, it is apparent that they intend to bring joy and adventure to music fans in and outside of their home city, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The duo is made up of Nigel Seibert playing the drums and Evan Pietrzak as the lead singer. Despite their distinct and unique differences from each other, they both agree on their electric pop sound, adding a futuristic touch to their music. The duo's creative nature and innate gifts drive them to pursue uncommon projects, including the recent music video that they produced. Their happy pop anthems are designed to lift the spirits of their listeners, stir their passion, and motivate them to live life to the fullest. While their music videos may feature dark themes that look ironic alongside their upbeat music, they both like breaking boundaries and introducing something new to music fans.

Through their music, Nigel and Evan mainly want to reach out to the younger generation of this time, most especially during this season of world crisis. They hope to be a positive influence on their fans and for their songs to help them make sense of things happening around them. Understanding that songs have such a powerful effect on people, they want to use it to make a difference in the community and the world in general. Their music is also intended to liberate young listeners from their personal fears in life, to move them to jump up and scream at the top of their lungs in celebration of their unique self, life, and everything they are grateful for.

"Our music deals with various topics that can relate to today's young people, such as relationships, personal struggles, and feeling trapped because of the current global pandemic or struggling to figure out who they are. We believe this music really speaks to the younger generation because we are the younger generation," explains the duo.

Nigel and Evan were inspired to develop their brand because of their desire to add some flavor to the already colorful music genres available today. They want to introduce a new way of creating music, new sounds, new rhythms, new songwriting approaches that they hope will get them recognized as serious music artists. While they do understand that the journey to stardom will be an uphill climb, the two are ready to meet the challenges head-on by remaining true to their brand, their musical style, and respect for one another's dreams and aspirations.

Looking ahead, Nigel and Evan envision themselves transforming from a small-time local band from Pennsylvania to pop icons in the near future. They also want their music to make it to the Grammy Awards, the Billboard charts, and American Music Awards, to name a few. Determined to be a phenomenal success in the music industry, the duo is putting in all the work needed to produce more songs that will impact their fans.

"Evan Pietrzak Calls the Tune in the Music Industry"

There are different platforms in this generation, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, wherein people can share their passion projects in just a few clicks. However, despite the advantages of these platforms, the overwhelming presence of information makes it difficult for artists to break into their niche. Evan Pietrzak is one of the young artists who dared to take the music industry head-on and use these platforms to his advantage.

As the lead singer and muse of the band “Nigel and Evan,” Eva Pietrzak optimizes all his innate musical prowess combined with experience to create music that will represent him as an artist. Since August 19, 2000, this young boy from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, was one of the rising talents. At the age of 4, Evan started performing in pageants at his Catholic school, St. Ursula Catholic School, situated in Allison Park, Pennsylvania. His enthusiasm for music grew stronger day by day and was harnessed throughout highschool, wherein he performed in various school and regional productions. Evan took part in Pittsburgh CLO Academy of Musical Theatre’s productions of “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” “In The Heights,” and “Smile.”

Despite all these theatrical backgrounds, he felt like he is meant to create bigger things. “I just want to use my voice and use it to show who I am without any limits unlike what the theatre community does, wanting more but up to a certain limit, that’s just not me,” said Evan. He did try to push through theatre arts; he even attended Point Park University for musical theatre. However, he decided to put all his efforts into creating music full time and left the university after a year.

One fateful day led him to meet Nigel Seibert, a young music producer, who became the other piece of the band they formed. The duo’s collaborative efforts and hours of practice were put into work as they reach for the common dream— express and be heard through music. A product of their hard work is four big hits, “In My Head,” “Fire,” “Back Again,” and “Karen,” which are available on Spotify. These songs express different thoughts and feelings but share a common musical theme, an upbeat futuristic electronic pop sound with a hint of the 90s.

Nigel & Evan is one of the upcoming local pop duos that shows great promise. By continuously putting together their musical skills, surely there will be new releases that will be hits shortly after. The passion and perseverance Evan put into their music transcends to the listeners as they convey the feelings behind every note and lyric. Unlike other factory manufactured songs, each of their songs contains metaphorical comparisons from real-life events, making it more relatable.

Evan Pietrzak aims to use his voice to amplify the voices of his generation. Besides, the music he creates is tailored to exude positivity, leading to a world overflowing with love and happiness. The future of this young artist is as bright as his songs.

"Top 25 Rising Musicians of 2021"

Nobody expected the cacophony of events that shook the world in 2020. However, the world adapted and moved on, and the music went on. Despite not having concerts or any form of shared musical experience, musicians had to find a way to gain attention organically. It was hard but not impossible as many turned their attention to social media, live streams, and challenges while others just let the music do the talking.

In the last year, many of us spent more time alone than we ever have. Music became the go-to company, and many new artists were discovered. These artists are some of the most impressive artists, and we have compiled 25 rising musicians in 2021 that are worth keeping tabs on in no particular order.

Evan Pietrzak has taken the next step for his career by performing for Super Bowl LV with 2Hot Radio. Singing his smash hit “Back Again” by his band Nigel & Evan, the young singer dominated the music scene in Tampa, Florida this past weekend by being the most standout performer by being the first and only pop singer at the entire event.

Pietrzak stated that “It was a great opportunity to share my music with a whole group of people who have the same dreams as I do. It was an honor to be invited to perform, and it was an experience I will never forget.”

Being humble and grateful for every opportunity he gets, Pietrzak is destined to become the next big pop star.

"Nigel & Evan Biography"

Nigel & Evan is an American Pop Duo group originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The duo includes Nigel Seibert on drums and Evan Pietrzak as the lead singer. Nigel & Evan write their music with only one thing in mind and that is just to have fun. Whether you’re a hardcore party animal or just like to get in your feels, Nigel & Evan have a song for you!

Have you always been interested in music? What is your story and how did you start making music?
I have always been interested in music. I was first introduced into the music scene when I was in my catholic school in Allison Park, Pennsylvania when I started doing pageants and school shows. Being up on stage singing solos in front of the audience at such a young age was such a fun experience for me and I loved hearing everyone clapping for me that I just remember thinking: “I wanna do that again” and from that point forward I started to hustle and perform and sing whenever I got the chance to. I began taking voice lessons at the age of 6 and started performing in musicals at the age of 7, starting at the local community theatre and joined the school choirs and participated in all the talent shows and started taking voice lessons and dance lessons at the Pittsburgh CLO Academy of Musical Theatre and did summer theatre camps at Wexford Acting Studio. After I graduated high school I went on to pursue musical theatre at Point Park University. After completing one year I withdrew from the university because I thought, “I just wanna be in the business and work. I want to be my own artist, not some factory-made entertainer”. I then began flying back and forth to L.A. and New York City trying to cut my teeth on any available gig. I also began writing songs of my own and recorded demos on my phone and then met up with Nigel Seibert, my producer/drummer in “Nigel & Evan” and began making them real songs to release and perform, henceforth “Nigel & Evan” was born.

What are you working on now? Any future releases we can look forward to?
“Nigel & Evan”‘s new single “Where You Goin'” will be releasing next Friday, February 19th on all music platforms.
What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry? Right now, my main focus is to become a signed artist and become a household name in the music industry. I’m not expecting to reach superstardom overnight, that would just be silly, but that would be nice to accomplish one day.

What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?
Same as everyone else: COVID-19 and the pandemic. Since this pandemic has shut down all live show venues and theaters, it’s been challenging to get in front of audiences to shower them with our lyrics and fun personalities. But we make it work by doing our own livestream concerts every weekend because as they say in show business, “the show must go on”, and that’s what we are trying to prove in these livestream concerts.

How do you go about writing a song? Do you have a melody in your head and then write the other music for it or what’s Your typical songwriting process?
Typically I will be going through something in my personal life or experience something either exciting or tragic and I will want to express my feelings for it in the best way possible so I express my feelings through music. I usually start with lyrics just do I can get my thoughts and words written down and just let them out my system and then I will sit at my piano and start coming up with a catchy melody to go along with what I have written.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business? It’s a blessing and a curse. It is a great way to get a diverse audience of people to hear your work but then it can be an open door to copyright issues with people stealing your ideas or your work and it can cause lots of drama in the music scene.

What Did You Do Before You Started Making Music?
I was performing in musicals and doing acting.

Would you have any advice for young people wanting to follow in your footsteps?
Work hard and believe in yourself and don’t be ashamed of being different. That’s what makes you great and if you have a dream you go out there and you fight for it no matter what anyone else says. The people who try to hold you back and tear you down are just jealous of you and wish they had the balls to do what you’re doing.

If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?
I would change the competitiveness. We all love music, we all love what we do so why make it a competition? If you love what you do and you are confident in yourself then why should it be a competition?

How do you feel about originality?
Originality is important. It’s what makes you powerful and helps one to stand out.

Is there anything else we should know about you? or Something that you would like to add?
