Mikael Engström, Inside MusiCast
Nicke was born and raised into a family full of music. Both parents and his three brothers are all musicians.
In the early 80’s Nicke discovered composers, musicians and bands like David Foster, Michael McDonald, Gino Vannelli, Quincy Jones, Lee Ritenour, Michael Ruff, Chaka Kahn, Pages/Mr Mister, Koinonia, Mezzoforte, Casiopea, Toto, Chicago etc.
Their music was a big eye-opener and would become important influencers for Nicke’s continuing work composing and playing in different bands.
Even though Nicke has been composing music since mid 80’s he released his debute solo single 2019. Nicke moves between different genres such as “Smooth Jazz/Fusion”, “Contemporary Classical/Neo Classical”, “AOR”, “Soul” etc. not to get stucked in one single genre.
