Nicholas started making his living in the streets and underground of Chicago in the dead of winter 27 years ago.
His influences were the Black Blues and Soul singers of the 60's and 70's and Nicholas learned to sing that songbook at the South bound EL stops where he experienced a kind of Gospel church environment. Nicholas went from busking everyday to playing every possible place he could make a living 7 night's a week and soon was opening for his heroes:
Al Green, BB King, Buddy Guy, Johnny Cash, Charlie Hunter, James Taylor, Shawn Colvin. The Meter's, Neville Brothers, Medeski Martin and Wood, and on and on! In 2007, James Taylor called him "undeniable" when he introduced him as the launch artist for The New York Times emerging artist's series at Joe's Pub in NYC. Nicholas was then signed to Candyrat records, who has one of the biggest followings on you tube and has since garnered a big fan base with over 6 million views. Nicholas has recorded 10 records. In October of 2012 Nicholas released an amazing CD of classic and obscure covers that was produced by long time John Martyn producer Jim Tullio. In the summer of 2010, Jim released a John Martyn tribute record with artists like Beck, David Gray and others, that also has Nicholas singing the Martyn classic "Angeline'!
His latest is called "Love soldier", Produced by big time LA mixer/producer Dave Way. It features The legendary Memphis horns! It was recorded in the spring of 2006 and for various reasons was just released in November 2013.
In December of 2013, he starts recording his next record called "Don't wait" and is in the midst of a kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to make it happen!
