Nelson's songs are rich lyrically and vocally and translate well to the live stage. He was the lead vocalist in original and cover bands spanning the last thirteen years and has performed as a solo artist with his 'Sinatra and Swing' show for private parties in the Bay Area. Writing seriously since 1997, Nelson's lyrics come from life experiences and observations of human interaction and the human spirit. His major influences are The Beatles, Paul McArtney, Frank Sinatra, Genesis, Phil Collins, REM, Pink Floyd. Inspirational reality based lyrics with appealing melodies and musical hooks combined with a commercially strong structure appeal to him most. Nelson's music appeals mostly to the adult contemporary pop/rock crowd, although his songs strike a chord with music lovers of all ages. His songwriting and production began with an idea to combine the aforementioned genres of music while staying true to his own character, thereby creating an original style that keeps pace with the sounds of today. Nelson has been writing songs seriously for the last seven years and is currently CEO of the music company 'Songfellowz' based out of San Jose, California. Songfellowz is a songwriting/publishing/production company with a staff of writers who share an extensive and impressive track record for writing great songs.
