A 33-year-old musician and producer, Nick grew up around music, watching his father conduct the symphony. At age 15 he began interning at a recording studio where he gained his love for music production. In 2008 while attending college, he released his first album, Instrumental Instrumentals, a smooth collection of jazz meets hip-hop beats. Shortly after he started a live hip-hop band called Essence d’Âme that played all over Orlando including Hard Rock Live and House of Blues. In 2011 opened Real Feel Recording Studios where he’s produced music and played on tracks for artists like Coco Peila, Gina Falcone, and Niko Is.
A talented multi-instrumentalist, Nick’s music has roots in funk, jazz, soul and blues, with infectious grooves that mesh perfectly over hip-hop drums and synth basslines – and other than the drum beats, there are no samples here – it’s all live. What Nick doesn’t play himself, he enlists his talented friends and takes advantage of the studio at his disposal. For the last year Nick has been at work on his lo-fi hip-hop EP called Vieste that’s coming out late summer 2020. Vintage funk synths, soulful electric piano, and jazzy guitars take you on a voyage over smooth hip-hop beats and latin percussion.
