Award-winning rock songwriter Nick's compositions have been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, MTV, Bravo, TLC, DIY, Nickolodean, and Sony Playstation providing the soundtrack for over 100 programs including "The Real World,” "NFL Football," "UFC," and "Switched at Birth." After years spent honing his craft as the principle creative force behind Mid-Atlantic rock band Numa, Nick's talents were fully recognized when his song “Like a Bruise” was chosen as a winner in the 16th Annual Billboard Magazine World Song Contest beating out thousands of other entries. The song was put on rotation on various satellite and FM radio stations from DC to San Diego and the band rocked legendary venues like the 9:30 Club and The House of Blues Myrtle sharing the stage with bands such as Avenged Sevenfold and The Violent Femmes. Following Numa's split in the winter of 2010, Nick has kept himself busy writing songs that display an increasing pop sensibility without losing his signature guitar sound and innovative lyrical perspective. That hard work paid off when his solo composition "Shooting Star" was named a Finalist in the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest in 2013. Nick is currently playing shows around the VA/DC region as a solo artist and continues to push boundaries with his own unique style of blues rock.
Nick S has over 25 years of music experience in the Richmond area.
Lessons at Music & Arts. Though I don't have a music degree I've complimented my musical training with all of the Guitar Grimoire instructional books, many books on blues and rock lead guitar and several other courses. I was trained on reading music on the saxophone in elementary, middle, and high school.
I have over 12 years performing experience in several bands in the VA/DC area. Numa and Daughter of Stars being the most notable. I've played over 250 shows at venues such as the 9:30 Club, the House of Blues, Alley Katz, The State Theatre and other large venues. I've shared the stage with Violent Femmes, Avenged Sevenfold, and numerous other national acts. I'm currently playing shows in the VA area solo acoustic.
