Chronologic’s newest artist.
Hailing from a family of musical tradition, Nick Nielsen took an interest in jazz and film music from a young age after his curiosity for playing drums and piano was indulged at age 11. It comes as no surprise, then, that Nielsen is a craftsman of melody and rhythm in equal parts. An intuitive composer and producer, Nick takes influence from all walks of life; from Zappa to 19th century Romantic period compositions, to modern dance music.
His forthcoming LP ‘Electric Monkeys’ chronicles the maturation of his role as composer, producer and musician- and sources session players from diverse backgrounds. Part crowd-sourced indie rock, part stomping bedroomtronica, Nielsen threads an innovative line between the organic and the digital – a set of tunes for which the only appropriate title is, of course, ‘Electric Monkeys.’
