What makes Nielsen different as an artist is his ability to be completely honest with the listener. His songs cover topics such as emotional wellbeing, broken family bonds and absence of relationships. Despite covering some taboo topics, the music is very much summery, vibrant and tuneful.
He may write acoustic pop songs, but at heart he is a funk and soul fanatic, who idolises the likes of George Benson, Smokey Robinson and James Brown. In recent times Nielsen has become a fan of John Mayer. Especially the early record ‘Inside Wants Out’, making a connection to Mayer’s honesty and melodic creativity.
