Electronic pop producer and singer/songwriter Nicholas Robert Danenza Hissom was born in London to American parents.
Growing up in England and attending school in Switzerland, he was exposed to different cultures from a young age. While at the Institut Le Rosey, he began songwriting with classmates. In 2012, he reached out to Denver-area DJs/producers Manufactured Superstars
. Their first collaborative single, "Killin' Tonight," debuted that year and he embarked on his first tour with the production duo. His next single, "If I Die Young," a propulsive house anthem packaged in a pop song, was produced by Mick Schultz (Rihanna
). Hissom signed with Larry Rudolph (Britney Spears
, Miley Cyrus
) and began recording his debut EP. Preceded by the lead single "Where You Are," Love Energy was released in 2016. ~ Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
