In 2015, while in his junior year of college, he took a trip to Nashville. “Although I loved music, I didn’t even own a guitar at that point so I figured that might be a good idea,” he recalls with a laugh.
He also recalls how intimidated he was that first visit to Nashville. “When I saw big name singers like Chris Stapleton and other songwriters play, I thought, man, maybe I’m not cut out for Nashville.”
He spent the next two years focusing on learning songs by his favorite country artists which influenced him with their country/rock style mixed with pop overtones.
Nick, however, would not be a true country artist if not for a few setbacks along the way. Just as he was honing his vocals, he developed a node (vocal chord lesion) that required surgery, which nearly ended his career before it started.
When he decided to pick up a guitar in 2017, he wanted to write songs to get a girl back, in true country style and since has released three singles and lives in Key West Florida, when he is not touring.
