Most artists spend years honing their skills in order to shop
themselves around to different labels, hoping someone will believe enough in their potential to take a chance on them. Nick didn’t waste time waiting for someone else to believe in him. He had the passion, confidence, and drive to start his own label, Blue Bella Records, in order to pursue his dream and artistic vision.
No matter how far he travels, be it geographically or stylistically,
the pull of Chicago and his roots there are never far from his mind. It’s where he started out on his musical journey; each new approach merely marks a stop along the way.
"Nick’s new CD just rocks! He balances traditional roots blues
with a fresh new approach and an ‘out of the trad’ box’ sound.
I applaud him. Play what’s in your heart, the crowd will follow.” - Jimmy Thackery
