Ticking

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa and raised in Northern California, Nick’s music is the fusion of his classical piano skill with a distinct knack for crafting romantic, evocative records filled with sonic texture and color.

Following the release of his last EP ‘Drivers’ in 2016, Nick took a step back and submerged himself in his music in order to discover what he originally wanted to say as an artist and making sure that was present in his art moving forward.

Nick reemerged in 2018 with a newly reimagined sound established by the release of his two, psychedelic new singles “Ticking” and “Lemons” off his forthcoming project due out in 2019.

Music being at the fusion of his classical piano skill, Nick brings forth a distinct knack for crafting romantic, evocative records filled with sonic texture and color. Throughout his two previous EP’s, numerous Hype Machine #1 singles, viral secret side projects and production/writing credits for artists across multiple genres on major labels, Nick’s sound is both undoubtedly one of a kind, and instantly recognizable.
