About

Nigel's first foray into learning an instrument himself came when he started to play the drums at just 3 years old. Later he began to play the guitar and piano, which he continued with for years before finally picking up a base at the age of 13, a decision which he never looked back from. Nigel's musical journey did begin in Delran NJ. Watching his father who played several instrumentals and played in a local band that he developed his musical tastes and interests, it wasn’t long after picking up a guitar that he was experimenting with writing music. All of which have had a profound influence on the direction his musical journey has taken. After realizing that making music was his main goal, he began to showcase his talent in various venues across New Jersey, playing at numerous gigs and making sure that his name and music were being heard by as many people as possible. He was quickly noted for the unique style. His talent with a variety of musical instruments only added to his appeal, and his unique sound with a twist started to find an appreciative audience. After picking up a BA in nursing, he went to help people a calling he had always had. Never leaving his true passion for music. He is keen to point out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. Finally, after honing his unique sound over recent years, he is now preparing to release his debut album, "Ready or Not", which underlies the changes that Nigel has gone through over recent years. It has allowed him to develop as a person, and has in turn profoundly aided his musical development. The songs provide a combination of his exciting guitar playing and mellow vocals, with a rhythmic undercurrent that bears testament to his playing, and punctuated throughout with elements of hip-hop, pop and R&B. Other changes that have affected and influenced his song-writing over recent years have been his development of local sounds, an area that he pays a lot of attention to and incorporates to a certain degree in his music, employing sound bites of lawn mowers to add an extra dimension to some of his songs. And as if that wasn’t enough, Nigel has taken it upon himself to take up an entirely different, though wholly satisfying, hobby of raising a little black cat named Trixy. The satisfaction he gets from indulging in his many passions has led to a bond with the animals. The album features Nigel's on the vocals and guitar, as well as (drums), (bass). Nigel's wed site is under construction but will be up soon so you can join his mailing list and contact him to just chat it up about music.

Risks and challenges

Without access to a studio and promotion tools it will be extremely hard for people to hear Nigel's music. These items are expensive. Philly has great grass roots for musicians but without the right connections and time to spend on this album in the right setting it will be impossible. Your help with this will put Nigel on his journey and you will have a major say in this success.
