Nelson's writing emphasizes a grounded creative philosophical mind combined with a peaceful laissez-faire spirit. He will make you think. Growing up as a competitive hockey player in Canada, Nelson's focus on music was limited to the School choir and musicals. After College, he moved to San Jose California and began seriously working on his voice and writing ability while performing with cover bands and original music ventures in the local area. In 1998, with the financial help of working nine years in the mortgage business, Nelson wrote and recorded his first self-titled album. While being an experimental and incredibly valuable learning experience, the songs are not without melodies and words that will stay in your mind, only to surface, as a good hook will, when you least expect it. "The Sailor", Nelson's second effort, focused on building a collection of songs that together tell a story about how a fated couples desire for career and love become permanently intertwined, forcing them apart and together while they search for their individuality and deal with their undeniable love for one another. Visit or go to Itunes, Zune, Rhapsody, to hear the music.



The key to Nelson's success in singing is his ability to sooth the audience with his voice. Although adaptable to be trained to hit the correct notes, the voice cannot be taught to naturally sooth. Always with an air of Sinatra-like confidence in any song he sings, Nelson has a knack for keeping your eyes and ears peeled to the stage. Nelson's story is philosophically simple yet undeniably destined to fate. He gets thrust back into music every time his grounded responsible nature decides to take a break from it. His life has a way in those times of reminding him that his talent cannot be suppressed and wasted, but must be utilized no matter how, when, where or why, no matter which inner fear attempts to disqualify his talent. This is no joke, but a sincere reality for him. Many bands and performers shine as a sum of their parts, but only show a glint of promise. Others will break through the industry with no less heart than the talent that does not, it is just something about them that keeps you interested. That 'something' cannot be taught, and the soothing nature of Nelson's voice and stage confidence is that 'something' that will keep you interested.
