Songwriting started as a form of therapy for Nielsen, turning his own trauma into stories as a distraction from ongoing problems in his home life as a young teenager.
Aged 17 Nielsen decided to drop out of music college and swap the south coast for the jubilee line. A stranger to the city, he soon found his feet on the London music scene, playing nightly in and around the capital. In 2017 he was chosen to play a slot at the renowned Latitude Festival in Suffolk. Later that year he momentarily returned to the south coast to record his first official EP, before setting off to promote the new music, playing an exhausting 31 gigs in 10 days. He played at venues such as coffee shops in the morning, to student unions by evening.
Nielsen branched out and wrote songs about things every teenager experiences. However he has never shied away from the mantra of honesty, and is not afraid to tackle personal topics. His second EP ‘Cheer Up’, is a prime example of this. He wrote ‘Cheer Up’ during a period when he moved away from home and was kindly offered a sofa to stay on in Turnham Green. Ironically, he survived off coffee shop vouchers he had previously been given whilst touring his first EP.
Over the past year his music has received airplay from Tom Robinson of BBC Radio 6; BBC London’s Gary Crowley; and BBC Introducing The South’s Melita Dennett.
“A hotly tipped young Londoner with a knack for ear worm pop melodies and literate, memorable lyrics” - Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6
