Bio

The passion that Nick feels about his music is undeniable to any listener. Whether Nick is singing an adult contemporary ballad, stylish dance-pop, or slick contemporary soul, his vocals reach out and draw you in, not just with their skill and exuberance, but with their emotion. With it’s grassroots R&B sound, his sultry, earthy style shines on songs like “MEANT TO BE”, but lest you try to limit him to any one particular genre or style, he easily slips into the exuberant pop stylings of “GOODBYE”, stirring the urge to get up and dance. In his own words, Nick says, “These songs are representative of both my style, and the general direction I would like to see my music take”.

Nick’s training ground was contemporary Christian/Gospel music, he grew up in the church, where he literally grew up singing. His parents were ministers and to hear his mother tell it, Nick has been singing practically since he was born. She relates how when Nick was about three years old, the family was in their car returning from a trip. Their car had no radio, so it had become customary that whenever they were in the car for any length of time, Nick’s Dad and Mom would sing to pass the time. On this particular night, Nick was sitting in the front seat between his folks as his parents sang. Suddenly, Nick’s mom realized there was another voice joining the duet in the car. Now, that in itself wasn’t terribly unusual, Nick often sang with them, but this time he was singing the harmony line along with his father. Perfect—note, and rhythm. And that was merely the beginning.

Nick’s dad has often said, “Son, you were born to sing.” While his mom is quick to point out that there’s a lot more to Nick and his purpose than just his incredible vocal ability, no one could ever deny that the guy has an amazing “set of pipes”. His style has been influenced by artists such as First Call, Bebe and Cece Wynans, Whitney Houston, Avalon, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and Kelly Clarkson, just to name a few.

In the fall of 2000, Nick, his Mom and Dad, and his brother, Jacob, sold most of what they owned, and moved to Nashville, Tn. so that Nick could pursue his career. Once in Nashville, Nick worked in the restaurant industry and the family rented a tiny two-bedroom apartment where the four adults lived while saving money to buy another home.
Since his arrival in Nashville, Nick has been privileged to work on several projects with other artists, including, background vocals for Janna Long of Avalon, and background vocals for Wayne Watson’s Living Room CD.

As any aspiring artist will tell you, you explore a lot of winding roads in your quest for success, some lead to interesting locales with loads of potential, others lead to nothing but dead ends. An ad in the Nashville Scene caught Nick’s eye and lead him down a new pathway; a talent development group was looking for new talent—Nick made an appointment with Baldwin Entertainment and after meeting with one of their agents, Michelle Robertson, he signed with the agency. Since then, Nick has had the opportunity to work with several talented producers, musicians, and engineers, and has recorded in some of Nashville’s top studios. Some of Nick’s previous projects are, HEAVEN, HOW I WONDER, HOW CAN I MOVE ON, and ASHES AND DESIRE.

Nick comes from a strong family unit who are in full support of his career. His family will tell you, it’s a joint venture, with each person doing whatever is necessary to facilitate the goal, whether it’s writing songs, developing contacts, working extra hours to fund projects, or just lending encouragement and strength when needed. But they will also tell you, when it comes down to it, it is Nick’s big, beautiful heart, his enormous talent, and his drive to succeed that will make him a success, because after all, “he was born to sing”.
