The journey to this point has not always been easy, however. Born Nicolas Herzig 1990 in Medellín, Colombia, Loco Escrito arrived in Switzerland as a six-month old and grew up near Zurich. He had a go at the drums at primary school and started writing lyrics and rapping in Spanish at the age of ten. “I am equally comfortable in German and Spanish, and make mistakes in both,” laughs Nicolas. “Spanish is the language of my heart, in which I can express my feelings.” Emotion is at the core of this passionate performer, singer and composer’s music. On his latest hit album Estoy Bien he deals with a difficult and defining period in his life. “I’m doing well,” is the satisfied assessment of the artist’s last few years.
