This Gray, Tennessee native grew up at the knee of his musical father, and learned to sing not only with his voice but with his soul. "I want people to feel what I feel when I sing." He began performing at the young age of 12, and since has grown increasingly more comfortable on the stage. His ability to ring out the emotion of the lyrics and connect with his audience is an amazing experience. Nick served in the United States Air Force for ten years, and never lost his desire to share his music with the world. He continues to volunteer his time and talents to various veterans' events throughout the year. Comfortable behind a drum set and sitting in front of the audience strumming his guitar, Nick's real talent lies in his singling style. Inspired by the greats of his childhood such as Ray Charles, Conway Twitty, Travis Tritt, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elvis, and his dad "Big Al", he is comfortable in any genre of music. In fact, he has developed a unique sound all his own that could best be described as Rockin\' Country. Nick is daring to be different and rocking country to the next level, \'I love to perform live and I love to entertain people. I long to leave the audience with something to talk about till next time!\' Nick has opened for a number of national acts in the Phoenix area acquiring an enormous amount of priceless experience and exposure. Those acts include Travis Tritt, Neal McCoy, Mark Wills, Eric Church, Ray Scott, Rodney Atkins, Chris Young, and Tracy Lawrence all with raving reviews. Nick has just completed his new "Self titled" CD, scheduled to be released March 2008. Nick was awarded an L.A. Music( F.A.M.E.) award for "National Independent Male Country Artist of Year 2007", and has a Nomination for the 2008 Phoenix Music Awards as " Independent Male Country Artist of the Year"
