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.
Over the last year his music has gained growing traction receiving airplay from Tom Robinson of BBC Radio 6; BBC London’s Gary Crowley; and BBC Introducing The South’s Melita Dennett. Nielsen has also played live sessions for BBC Essex, BBC Sussex and BBC Cambridgeshire. At the young age of 18 Nielsen was selected to play Latitude Festival. Since that time he has gone on to play prestigious London venues such as The Bedford and Ronnie Scott's.
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.
“A hotly tipped young Londoner with a knack for ear worm pop melodies and literate, memorable lyrics” - Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6
"Imagine George Michael and John Mayer wrote a song together and added a sprinkle of Prince’s sass” - BBC Introducing London
