Biography

Take Nickleback, Rob Tomas and Maroon Five and throw them in a blender. What do you have? The essence of Nik Tarascio. A mix of pop rock that is familiar yet unmistakably different. The music expands on the emotionally charged sound that enables him to connect with the very depths of the heart.

“My music is the soundtrack to everyday life that makes you realize that you’re not alone and someone else does feel the same way you do,” says the charismatic artist. I started singing in chorus when I was nine years old, I've been playing guitar since I was ten , but didn't really become comfortable with my voice until I started performing with my former band “Sometimes Never”. In 2005 I took my music to another level and taught myself to play piano.

As Nik journeys out as a solo artist, he takes with him the skill of being in a band and the impact it has made on his life. He is sexy, masculine, and powerful, with stage presence that captures any girls heart. Nik’s diverse pallet of influences ranging from Metallica to classical piano creates a unique contrast of sounds. With a voice that will electrify you, Nik is constantly pushing boundaries; especially in a market saturated by music that is missing real feeling, he leaves no listener untouched.

Lyrics

Tell Me We're OK

Written By: Nik Tarascio

You pack your clothes up as you cry
And tell me you've been with some other guy
I look at you, you look back at me
I guess I'm not the man you want to see
But I doubt you wanna call your fam
And tell them you're moving in again
So take your coat off, come sit with me
Cause I'm not ready for reality

Tell me we're OK
Even if you have to lie
I don’t wanna say goodbye

There's no need to apologize
I've also been with someone on the side
But during the day we can put on a show
If you don't want our friends to know
At night you can lay with your back to me
As long as you keep me company
So here's the game we're gonna play
It's called "I'm happy and I want to stay"

Tell me we're OK
Even if you have to lie
I don’t wanna say goodbye

I wanted to be romeo for my juliet
But you're my poison and I'm the dagger in your chest

Tell me we're OK
Even if you have to lie
I don’t wanna say goodbye

Fables

Written By: Nik Tarascio

Young and naïve, we believed in fairy tales
And stories that end happily ever after, well

I waited for you all these years love
I waited to find out that you’re just a fable

Shame on me, foolish to think this would ever last
When what we call feelings is merely convenience

I waited for you all these years love
I waited to find out that you’re just a fable

Tell me why
Tell me you love me, I love to pretend
Tell me love’s forever as we come to end

I waited for you all these years love
I waited to find out that you’re just a fable
