Nick has been listening to 60’s music since the 90’s. He has had an affinity for music since he was a baby. He used to lie by the large speakers in the living room, listening with intensity as though he was trying to make sense of the emotion that the music made him feel.
It’s not surprising that he would grow to be a musician with a broad interest in many types of music. His influences include Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, The Beatles, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Jackson Brown, Cat Stevens, The Monkees, Ray LaMontagne, Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes, among others.
Being a musician allows him to express himself in a way that, often times, words alone cannot. His challenges through the years have been softened by the love of music and performing.
Nick performs often and also volunteers for Autism organizations such as Autism Speaks and The Miracle Project. In 2011 Nick was asked to play for The Miracle Project's concert AUTISM IS AWESOMISM, where he performed "Helplessly Hoping" with Stephen Stills. That was one of the very first songs Nick learned on guitar, an experience he will not soon forget.
He performs throughout California and collaborates with fellow musicians. He is also collaborating with Dani Bowman, an animator in Los Angeles, CA with whom Nick has performed voice overs and has written original music for her shorts.
