Nicholas David is a dynamic, multi-talented singer/songwriter from Saint Paul, MN who first came to national prominence while, as a member of Team CeeLo, he earned Top 3 Fan Favorite honors on NBC’s The Voice in 2012. The Chicago Tribune declared Nicholas’ voice reveals “a mix of the growl of Dr. John and the silk of Marvin Gaye”…an accurate testament to his inspired soul roots. Prior to his unforgettable run on The Voice, Nicholas had recorded five critically acclaimed albums, experienced national radio airplay and participated in multiple charity and collaborative projects. In 2018 and early 2019 Nicholas toured the world as the keyboard player and background vocalist for the Devon Allman Project and was featured each night as lead vocalist on a song or two - check out his version of Lean on Me here and look for his next release on Samantha Fish’s new label in the fall of 2019.
Nicholas’ music is a fully integrative experience, incorporating multiple genres and influences ranging everywhere from Prince to Beethoven. His powerful voice, enriching lyrics and liquid piano playing set him apart and are the reason Skope Magazine calls him “an authentic artist of this millennium.” His captivating melodies embody an unbridled passion for music, and his lyrics convey the thoughts of a truly humble, intelligent and genuine human being. When it comes to his iconic live shows, Nicholas is a one-of-a-kind and must-see act. As if channeling inspiration from an outside source, the instant he walks on stage he gives himself over to the music. Fans have even gone as far to speak of his performances as a spiritual service that they actually want to attend. His emotional approach to songwriting and performing is the very reason the thriving Twin Cities music scene affectionately nicknamed him ‘the feelin.’
“infectious as hell… Reinventing and evolving each song he sings, David gives songs deeply ingrained in pop culture something new and passionate with each performance.” – City Pages
