Nick Michaels


I'm lauded for my high-energy performance, riff-centric play style, and ability to lock in with a drummer. I tend to shy away from your usual four-chord patterns in search of new structures. I like creating music that's a little unsettling, but I take influence from pop structure and sensibility. So while the result may be slightly atonal, it resolves in a way that's pleasing to the listener, hook-y, and memorable.
